Ghana’s Dancing Pallbearers to donate $250k out of $1m meme sale to Ukraine

Published

on

Ghana’s Dancing Pallbearers have pledged to donate $250,000 of the proceeds from the Coffin Dance meme recently auctioned to Ukraine.

On Saturday, April 9, 3F Music came out on top in the bidding round, purchasing the 10-second meme for $1,046,079.54 (327.00ETH) in one of the historic Non-Fungible Token (NFT) auctions.

This was after the video meme was minted by the dancing pallbearers team on April 7.

According to the leader of the pallbearers, Benjamin Aidoo, the money will be donated to Ukrainian charities to help mitigate the hardship brought about by the ongoing war with Russia.

 

Taking to social media, Benjamin Aidoo also congratulated the Dubai-based music production company on winning the bid.

The Foundation, Come Back Alive, is said to receive the donation from the Ghanaian group.

Also, in a tweet, the Foundation pledged to make judicious use of the financial support coming its way.

In 2020, the group of young men managed to turn funerals into rather hearty transitions.

Videos went viral depicting the men demonstrating their casket-carrying skills by orchestrating a choreographed routine, lifting and lowering the casket, and even sitting on the floor if need be.

The $1,046,079.54 bid places the meme among some of the most valuable NFTs to have crossed the million-dollar mark worldwide.

Rappers shy away from collabs because of unnecessary comparisons- Eno Barony

Published

on

Award-winning Ghanaian rapper, Eno Barony has blamed the lack of rapper-to-rapper collaborations on unnecessary comparisons.

The rapper, who has constantly shown her rapping prowess in a field dominated by men stated in a recent interview that rappers shy away from collaborations with other rappers.

“I’ve not really featured a lot of rappers because a lot of rappers kind of shy away from featuring their co rappers especially me being a girl,” she stated.

According to Eno, singers are able to collaborate freely without any chance of music listeners trying to pick who sang the best, however, same cannot be said for rappers.

“Most at times there is a comparison when it comes to rap but two singers can easily feature themselves on a song without being compared.

“Nobody cares they just jam to it but then when two rappers are on a project people tend to just compare the lyrics and stuff,” she explained.

She continued; “So it’s like you guys putting your lives down you may be slaughtered at any time but this one is a collaboration, not a battle,” Eno Barony told the host.
