Artiste manager and Entertainment Pundit, Kwesi Ernest has disclosed that most Ghanaian musicians are not good performers at all. According to him, they charge huge amount but their performances are no-no.
In a recent interview with Graphic Showbiz, Kwesi Ernest said some musicians charged huge amounts only to appear on stage and deliver very poor performances.
“I have billed a lot of top artistes for shows and the money they asked for was too much but they gave very poor performances, we hype some musicians in this country for nothing.
“I can’t pay an artiste GH¢ 40,000 only for him or her to come and jump on stage and get tired after 15 minutes. For crying out loud the fans pay huge money to come and watch a real performance and not something boring,” he said
Citing an example, Kwesi Ernest said he was very disappointed in some of the artistes he paid for his Bliss On The Hills show up the Kwahu Mountains last year.
“Some of the fans of these musicians get disappointed seeing their artiste put up a poor performance and that goes to prove that musicians are just interested in the money for their appearance.This has to stop if we want to go international. Don’t our artistes see the kind of performances the foreign artistes put up?
