Ex-manager of Ghanaian artist Sista Afia, Emmanuel Arhin has come forward with claims that Fancy Gadam demanded 50,000 cedis to headline the ‘Solomon Concert’ in Tamale but backed out despite an agreement.
The former manager suggests intentional sabotage and urges Fancy Gadam to settle the dispute with Sista Afia, emphasizing the need for mutual support in the music industry.
Ghanaian musician, Fancy Gadam revealed the agreement with Sista Afia was reached only one week to the scheduled event.
“Sista Afia didn’t approach us. Someone called and said he wanted to do a show with me and her. We charged GH¢100,000. Then she called herself, wanting me to help her, so I took GH¢50,000 per artiste-to-artiste agreement, meaning half of the initial fee” Fancy Gadam stated on Tamale radio.
Fancy Gadam said apart from the payment, he also had issues about the timing of the event.
Arhin accuses Fancy Gadam of unprofessionalism, citing management silence and conflicting statements about his performance fee.
See below statement:
“Why Fancy Gadam for lie? Charley it’s show biz we understand but coming out to publicly lie that’s total rubbish. Sake of you people, we had to push the show like 3 months ahead. Unnecessary excuse, you asked for 50k. We agreed to pay yet your management decided not to even pick up our calls to confirm final dealings.
“I understand the competition and the planned sabotage. IF it was indeed 1 week why did you tell Carlos you wanted to pull through 3 days before the event…after delaying us for weeks before we could finally release an official artwork because for commercial reasons
“The lies too plenty Fancy, the other interview you said you charged 100k, today it’s 50k. Total Unprofessionalism on the side of your management at least with the dealings I personally witnessed, and it’s no big deal if you couldn’t pull through for someone you call a sister, just settle this with her you’ll both need each other in the future.”
