According to MP for South Dayi Constituency, Rockson-Nelson Etse Kwami Dafeamekpor, the Ministry of Communications spent GH¢1.4 million on the Virtual Concert that followed the launch of the COVID-19 Tracker app.

On Monday, April 13, the Ministry of Communications led by Ursula Owusu-Ekuful launched the app as part of efforts to track coronavirus cases.

It was followed by a virtual concert which saw Dancehall artiste Shatta Wale, Kuami Eugene alongside Dada KD, Great Ampong, Diana Asamoah, Lucky Mensah, Bukom Banku, Kaakyire Kwame Appiah, Fancy Gadam from Tamale, among others perform.

Speaking to entertainment talk show host Christian Agyei Frimpong of Onua 95.1 FM, Mr Dafeamekpor said: “The Ministry of Communications spent GH¢1.4 million on the event”.

“Some of the artistes was paid GH¢40,000, another artiste took GH¢100,000 and after the event, some of the artistes who took less are not happy about how they have been created by the organizers.

When quizzed by Christian Agyei Frimpong if his statements were mere allegation, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) MP he said:

“I’m speaking to the fact. There is an event company that was in charge of the organization so we have all the information.”

Some musicians who performed at the virtual concert have claimed they did it for FREE.

The Ministry Of Communications is yet to respond to this claim of spending 1.4 million Ghana Cedis but has, however, revealed that over 16,000 Ghanaians have downloaded the GH COVID-19 Tracker App since it’s launch.
