Ghanaian tema-based hiplife duo R2Bees pulled out of the Malta Guinness sponsored Top of the World Concert held at the Independence Square in Accra yesterday.
Reasons for their actions, was channeled to the fact that Nigerian A-list musicians were paid higher than them "R2bees and Sarkodie" being Ghanaian artistes and for a concert taking place in Ghana ,the promoters should have paid them more than International acts P-square.
The duo posted a message on their Facebook Page on friday afternoon.
“Hello fans, sorry to announce to you we won’t be performing at tomorrow’s “Top of the world” concert due to misunderstanding with promoters. The promoters, the Artists and most importantly you the fans can help change our music industry, refuse to be misled, support ur own. Thanks.
"We’re happy to be the scapegoats, the blacksheep if our actions help change our pathetic music industry… CHANGE WILL COME.The group’s decision leaves P Square and Sarkodie as the only acts out of the three publicized, to perform .
Sarkodie still performed at the concert, as a compromise of a sort has been reached between his management team, the sponsors and event house, CharterHouse.
