The organizers of the 2017 edition of the Radio and Television Awards have come out to say that the GhC1000 which reports indicate was the full payment made to Patapaa was just for transport.
In a statement, they stated that the money was given to the Ghanaian act to help him move from Swedru to Accra so the two parties could sign a contract.
“We will not put out the exact amount agreed on because it isn’t ethical to do so but we can say that both parties are satisfied with the agreed amount and that was enough for us to give him the 1000 Ghana Cedis travelling facilitation fee which the media is peddling as the total amount for his performance.”
“This year, Ebony Reign will headline the event with the support of Patient Nyarko, Kurl Songx and Patapaa. We will call on those peddling the falsehood to desist from it because it is against the ethics of journalism to do that.”
