No musician was paid to perform at COVID-19 virtual concert – Communication Minister

Contrary to views that the Ministry of Communication paid artists to perform at the COVID-19 virtual concert, on Monday, the Minister of Communications, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, says no artiste was paid.

Speaking at the Ministry of Information’s press briefing on the coronavirus pandemic on Tuesday, she said the artistes performed at the launch of the COVID-19 Tracker for free.

According to her, the government gave the musicians the platform to showcase their talents and entertain people.

“The launch was held yesterday and I must thank the musicians who also performed for free to lift up the spirit of those of us in lockdown and educate the public through music as well,”

“People are questioning why we had a virtual concert to launch this app. But I think that the musicians also saw it as an opportunity to give something back. These are the skills that they have,’ the Minister explained.

The virtual concert was put together by the Ministry of Communications as a side attraction to the launch of a coronavirus tracking app  (COVID_19 TRACKER).

The App is to help trace individuals who have come into contact with COVID-19 positive individuals.

Shatta Wale, Fancy Gadam, Kuami Eugene, Diana Asamoah, Great Ampong, Dada KD, Kaakyire Kwame Appiah, Nicholas Omane Acheampong, Eduwodzi and Bukom Banku were artist who performed on the night.

The user friendly and free to download mobile software application will be available for Android and iOS devices after its launch.
