Outspoken Journalist, Captain Smart, in a video sighted by this news portal has said though government claims it did not pay artist who performed during the Covid-19 virtual concert, he has evidence that artists were paid varied sums of monies after their performance.
Wading into the allegations, Shatta Wale, who also performed at the programme refuted claims of artists taking monies after the concert.
However, the anti-corruption campaigner on his most listened to radio programme, Dwaso Nsem, disclosed that the Minster of State claims the musicians performed for free but it is not true indicating that it is a curse to the selected musicians who has kept quite over the matter for the Minister to deceive the public.
“If you do work for someone and you’re paid for it. But the person goes about saying you did it for free, send the money back to that person because it is a curse to receive money and pretend you didn’t. Why did you perform at the virtual concert and you got paid but the Minister comes out to say you didn’t take any money?” He quizzed.
Mr Smart then went on to reveal that the musicians were paid different huge sums ranging from GHC 5,000 to GHC 100,000, adding that when footballers get paid huge sums, Ghanaians should not complain.
The Covid-19 app tracker launch and it virtual concert that accompanied it was to educate the general public on the use of the app.
