Sarkodie, Efya’s ridiculous demand from Organizers of the Ghana Music Awards, Europe flop show

By on

Ghana-Music-Awards-Europe-2013Ghana Music Awards 2013 Europe which came off last Friday 9th August at the IndigO2 was highly unsuccessful.

Sarkodie, Efya and Kojo Antwi who were billed to perform at the night but failed to do so.

GhanaCelebrites reported that Organizers of the Event quoted Sarkodie and Efya making the following ridiculous demands before showing up.

Sarkodie’s Demands

  • Visas for 9 people—-and these people included his manager-Sammy Forson and sister.  He wanted to come to London with an entourage of 9.
  • Business Class return tickets for himself and manager.
  • Accommodation for about 4 of the above people.

Efya’s Demands

  • Visas for herself and 2 others.
  • Business Class return tickets
  • Accommodation for the 3 of them…

What Then Happened…

Kojo Antwi secured his own visa, intending to use a band he requested the organizers to pull together for him in London since things were getting tight for the organizers. He was very much concerned about not disappointing his fans.

Though the organizers were ready to satisfy the above ridiculous demands, it became obvious that they did not have enough time to go through the normal visa acquisition process and therefore decided to use the fast track route.

For a person to qualify to use the fast track service in Ghana, such a person must meet certain requirements which only Sarkodie and his manager met. And when it came to Efya, none of her ‘baby-sitting’ friends/team members met the criteria…

Using the fast track route, the organizers acquired visas for Sarkodie & his manager, and Efya.

We are told that upon receiving her visa, Efya told the organizers she wanted to go with her 2 people and since this was not met, she was no more interested….

The question is; what about her fans and when must she compromise?

Similar to Efya’s position, Sarkodie also made a jump—claiming that if visas could not be acquired for the other 8 people, then there is no way he is going to be at the event.
