A typical Shatta Wale threw his weight about when he appeared on the show Showbiz 360 hosted by regular face Giovani Caleb.
Shatta Wale bragged that he is probably the first Ghanaian artist whose performance earnings from gigs in Ghana brought in roughly $320,000 in a row.
The Dancehall/Reggae genre specialist disclosed that he received $100,000 in performance fees from Afro Nation and the group responsible for bringing Cardi B to Ghana, respectively.
He added that the organizers of Cardi B’s event in Ghana disregarded their agreement, which is why he did not perform there.
“I am the only artist in Ghana that has been able to charge shows $100,000 three times in a row. And I won’t lie.
The first Afro Nation show that they did in Ghana, the first time, they paid me $100,000 cash. Cardi B’s show that was held in Ghana, I was paid another $100,000. I took the money and didn’t go because they violated the contract. That’s what happened because it was a nice agreement.”
Shatta Wale also revealed that he did not perform after Sadiq Abu, formerly of 3Music, paid him $120,000 because they also breached their contract.
“Sadiq’s Wildaland, I got paid $120,000. If the other artsites want to know, I want to tell them. So if I tell somebody that I’ve been able to make $300,000 from shows in Ghana, they will think I’m bragging.”
