Ghanaian Afropop musician, Camidoh, who is managed by George Britton, has given reasons for turning down 20,000 cedis from an American promoter who wanted to put him on a show abroad.
According to the singer, who many have described as one of Ghana’s underrated artistes, despite his unique voice and talent, he wasn’t willing to accept chicken change all in the name of getting an opportunity to perform outside Ghana.
His comment was in response to Kwaku Okyere Darko who in a Facebook post detailed how an American promoter expressed disappointment in Camidoh’s manager for focusing on money instead of building his brand as an artiste.
“Had a short conversation on Clubhouse yesterday with an event Organizer in the US… he stated that George M. Britton isn’t helping Camidoh anyways. According to him, he wanted to put Camidoh on a Show and the price tag his manager placed on him couldn’t make way for @Camidoh. So, to him, he thinks George should consider certain things and just allow Camidoh grab such opportunities to build himself, get connected and shouldn’t focus much on the money involved cos he has a great future… the money involved was 20,000 Cedis,” read Kwaku Okyere’s post.
But reacting to this, Camidoh who seems displeased wrote that some promoters think they do artsites “a favour” when they bill them for shows.
The ‘Maria’ crooner defending his managers’ actions added that the money he rejected could not have even covered any of his music videos and the investment that has gone into his music.
