However, just a few days after the event, the event organizers fingered some Ghanaian artists who failed to show up for the concert after initially agreeing to perform.

The likes of Shatta Wale, Kofi Kinaata and Black Sherif are among the artists who didn’t show up at the event to perform.

Following this, it has been alleged that Black Sherif who is in the UK was unable to perform at the London show because his team demanded almost half a million Ghana Cedis from the organizers.

As part of the VGMA ‘Best New Artiste of the Year’ package, the Ghanaian trap star was supposed to perform at the #GhanaPartyInThePark. Unfortunately, that couldn’t happen because the timing wasn’t favorable for Blacko’s team,” VGMAs PRO, Robert Klah, said.

Also, in a report by Hitz FM, an insider revealed that Black Sherif’s team was demanding a huge sum of an amount that the event organizers didn’t agree to so he was not able to perform at the concert.

According to an anonymous source [a member of the Akwaaba UK group], the group proposed an amount of £10,000 (GHS 97,786) as Black Sherif’s performance fee for the Ghana Party in the Park event. However, Blacko’s team was demanding £50,000 (GHS 489,387),” a tweet by Hitz FM said.

The allegation has since sparked a debate on social media. “Blacko Sherif’s managers are gon ruin his career real soon. Charging £50,000 (GHC489K) for a show cos of three hit songs is very very absurd. He’s not worth it. He’s gon beg to be paid GHC20K when the fame dies. Ask those who started,” Bongo Ideas tweeted.
