Highest Paid Musicians In Ghana and How Much They Are Paid Per Show


The good people at kuulpeeps, an entertainment and social website compiled a list of how much Ghanaian artist charge for shows.

For their preamble or research work that culminated in the list, here is what the website wrote;
“For some time now we have all been wondering how much our favourite artistes like Sarkodie, Shatta Wale or EL will take for performing at a concert. Kuulpeeps went around speaking to artiste managers and some booking personnel to find out how much their artistes will take if they play at a show. Most of the figures we got from the managers were negotiable. Some of the artistes like Worlasi and Adomaa have a different price range if they will be playing with a live band.”

The portal also noted the price could change depending on the show/event.
