Claims that some artistes were paid to perform at Ebony’s tribute concert is “unethical” and shows “a certain kind of heartlessness” if true says recording artiste, M.anifest.
His comment comes on the back of Nana Opoku Kwarteng, father of the late ‘Sponsor’ artiste claiming that he was handed a list by Bullet, former manager of his daughter, detailing expenses incurred during the concert.
The list included alleged amount said to have been paid to various artistes to perform at the event which was in honour of her memory and a prelude to her funeral service.
“It would be ridiculous if anybody did receive money for this. It would be their right but so unethical and you’d have to have a certain kind of heartlessness to be benefiting from someone’s death,” stated M.anifest to Sammy Forson on JOY FM.
“Ghana, we talk ‘a good game’ but I don’t think that there’s a lot of good ethical standing with a lot of people when nobody is watching. So we all have to keep ourselves in check and hold ourselves to higher standards not just about sounding good in the media, so even me talking here right now, I better walk the talk.”
He also cautioned people on the need to be carefully analyze issues and get the facts before reacting.
“We should be more circumspect when talking about things, a little bit of research because we sometimes go off allegations so much. Nowadays, all one needs to do is to allege something, you don’t even need proof,” explained M.anifest.
“I can create a website today called Ns3mfunu.com, put a new story on, and the next thing is it’s going to be carried on all platforms and that’s one of the problems we have. We give anything credibility once it’s sensational.”
