According to Diana Hamilton’s manager, she didn’t request payment for her appearance at a benefit in Kumasi a few years ago.
The gospel artist’s manager, David Ennin, told Metro TV that they received “fuel” money. He clarified that the program’s delay was what led to the donation of funds.
When they performed the Ashanti Regional one, Diana gave a performance in Kumasi (National Cathedral fundraiser). We have a section for recognizing artists.
“Does it mean that the artist charged or that they were appreciated when you say that artists were paid? As far as I know, we didn’t.”
“I think they appreciated us, but that one I can’t disclose [the amount], and it was not anything that is close to any charge. That one we didn’t charge. Diana Hamilton performed, but she didn’t charge. But I quite remember; I think they gave something for what she did.
“We stayed for long because the program delayed and so after everything, I think they gave something for our fuel and whatever. That is what I can say. But on authority, we didn’t charge because the was no negotiation,” he said.
Multiple media sources say fundraising performers were paid GH30,000 apiece.
Sonnie Badu has debunked allegations that he got $50,000 for his performance at the US National Cathedral benefit.
