Barely days after Bullet’s statement, Nana Opoku Kwarteng went on Tv3 and GhOne to reveal a paper alleging to be the list of the breakdown of monies paid to artists who performed at Ebony’s tribute concert on the eve of her funeral given to him by Bullet.
On the sheet, Bullet had written to inform him that artistes including Edem, Keche, Ras Kuuku, Captain Planet, Coded, R2Bees and Rachel all received monies for performing at the tribute held in honour of the singer who died in an accident on February 8 2018.
Artistes including Coded, Keche, Kurl Songx and Captain Planet have in separate statements denied receiving any monies from Bullet to perform at the concert; a move which has caused mixed reactions among music enthusiasts and Ghanaians in general.
Meanwhile, Ghanaian Disc Jockey, an associate DJ of RuffTown Records, DJ Shiwaawa who doubles as the official DJ for Ebony has also come out denying that he received an amount from Bullet as a DJ at Ebony’s Tribute Concert.
According to DJ Shiwaawa, proceeds from the concert were to be invested in Ebony’s foundation as revealed to him by Bullet
He made this revelation on Hitz FM, August 16 2018, what even surprises him was the inclusion of Dancehall artiste, Epixode in the list of artists who received money to perform explaining that he was the one who brought Epixode to the event.
He further stated that the boss of RuffTown Records did not give any report concerning the proceeds mentioned above.
