Cwesi Oteng is pleading to Ghanaian gospel acts to charge nothing less than $25,000 to mount the Don Moen stage.
The announcement of Don Moen coming to Ghana to headline a concert commemorating the 60th Anniversary of the nation clearly has not gone down well with the gospel fraternity.
In an interview with Happy FM’s Ayekoo hosted by DJ Adviser, the God Dey Bless Me singer fumed;
“I have been listening to Don Moen from child hood. An American President won’t do that. This is a national event. It will cost more than $100,000 to bring Don Moen down to Ghana. You can bring Don Moen, Lil Wayne, Beyonce, Michael Jackson or Jay Z. They should bring anyone they want.
“No Ghanaian gospel artiste, should charge less than $25,000 to climb the Don Moen Stage. $25,000 is not too high an amount for blacks. If they know how to use money, we will show them that we know how to charge! It’s an insult to the citizens and we voted for change.”
