Published

prince mackay cryCEO of Big Events Ghana, organizers of the annual Radio and Television Personality (RTP) Awards shed tears in distress, pain and sorrow when he appeared on Stacy Amoateng’s Restoration TV show. Mackay on the show disclosed that a member of his team who was in charge of his gate fees for the 2012 edition of the awards runaway with the proceeds. During the chat with Stacy Amoateng on the show, Prince said the person whose name he did not mention gave him excuses when he approached him to make accounts after the event. https://youtu.be/dbdVB_e9ZgM The boss of RTP awards added that he was informed two days later that the person had traveled to United States of America with earnings from the tickets of RTP Awards he sold for that year. To him, most Ghanaians thought he made enough cash from the awards that year due to its success, but he did not receive a penny from the income. Prince Mackay continued that life became tough for him that year, but he had to man-up and face it. https://ameyawdebrah.com/114141-2/ Meanwhile the Communications department of RTP Awards has issued the following statement regarding reports about the performance fee of Pataapa for the event: Reports on a number of media platforms indicate that Big Events Ghana, organisers of RTP Awards has given Hiplife Artist Patapaa an amount of 1000 Ghana Cedis to perform at the 7th Adonko RTP Awards slated for the 28 of October 2017 at the Accra International Conference Centre. We’d want to state categorically that this piece of news is false and should be treated with the contempt it deserves. Big Events Ghana after getting the consent of the One Corner hit maker to be part of this year’s event through a negotiator the artist himself introduced to us to speak to requested that the artist and his manager should come to Accra and sign a formal contract to bind each party. The artist raised concerns about traveling all the way to Accra with no surety and so we decided to give him an amount of 1000 Ghana Cedis which will be deducted from the main performance fee agreed upon to indicate our commitment to the agreement. We will not put out the exact amount agreed on because it isn’t ethical to do so but can say that both parties are satisfied with the agreed amount and that was enough for us to give him the 1000 Ghana Cedis which some journalists who don’t have the full details or decided to twist the issue are peddling around as the total amount for his performance. The RTP Awards platform has over the years been used to advance the career of musicians in Ghana whose work resonate with the people the most in the year of the event and beyond and therefore in the spirit of advancing the career of the young man and recognising his effort, we decided to give him our platform to make a bigger case for himself. This is also in response to request made by a substantial number of industry players who thought it is fair to give him that opportunity. Our events belong to the industry players and the general public and therefore our choice of artists are largely based on the preferences and recommendations of these people. This year, Ebony Reign (Dancehall) who is arguably the most successful Ghanaian artist in 2017 will headline the event with the support of Gospel sensation Patient Nyarko (Gospel), classy Kurl Songs (High life) and the new kid on the block Patapaa (Hiplife). The diversity of our choice of artists for this year’s events perfectly meets the preference of majority, if not all entertainment lovers in Ghana. We will call on those peddling the falsehood to desist from it because it is against the ethics of journalism to do that. We’d want to assure the people of Ghana that we will always use our platform to grow the entertainment industry in general and will not disrespect hardworking artists buy paying them less than they deserve. Every artist on the bill is satisfied with the amount agreed. We will therefore not comment on this issue any further. On the 28th of October, 2017, Ghanaians can brace themselves for the highest standard of event organisation; quality performances form the artist on-board and countless surprises. Come let us celebrate the voices that Educate, Inform and Entertain Ghana    ]]>
