Some event promoters in some communities outside the capital city have bitterly complained of the extremely high amount some artistes charge for shows.
An Nkawkaw based events promoter, Levels Man, told Sammy Flex in an interview that, due to the bizarre cost these artistes charge, it makes it difficult to book them for events in their region.
“We want to have the likes of Kidi, Kuami Eugene, Shatta Wale and several others to perform at our events but they charge too much”, he stressed.
Levels further added that, they’d rather have artistes within their jurisdiction perform because asides creating awareness for their up and coming artistes, it is cost effective.
He mentioned that, sponsorship for events in the region is very low, hence they face challenges in billing A-list artistes for their events.
He further pleaded with artiste managers to bear with them by massaging costs for performances by their artistes for such areas.
“I plead with the managers of these artistes to massage the cost a bit to favor us”, he stated.
According to him, patronage for events is low because fans keep demanding that, Accra based top musicians be included in these shows.
