Shatta Wale in a radio interview has disclosed how much Coca Cola paid his comrades Stonebwoy, EL Feli Nuna for the Coke Studio Africa in Kenya.
“They were handed $4,200 and amounts around that range. That’s why these firms always do that to Ghanaian artists. We Ghanaian artists look at it from the point that no matter what it is, we will collect it and that’s why our industry is dying. You think Yemi Alade will go and take $4,200 or Tiwa Savage or Wizkid will fly there for that amount simply because it’s Wizkid.”
Shatta prior to this statement made it known he agreed on a cool $15,000 with Coca Cola.
“I was offered $15,000.” He told Pluzz FM. “I understand Coca Cola South Africa will pay $5000 which Coca Cola Kenya will pay $5,000 and Coca Cola Ghana will pay $5000.”
Mean while host of YFM’s Urban Africana, Official KWAME represented YFM in Nairobi this weekend to experience the Coke Studio, interact with Trey Songz, Yemi Alade and other artists from across the continent as they launch season 4 of the show before it begins in Ghana next month.
