Chris Brown brings out Surprise Guest Wizkid at his Concert in Ghana! | CB Allegedly Paid One Million Dollars For His Performance – Updated




American Superstar, Chris Brown was the headliner for a concert in Ghana last night, 5th March, 2013 – The rLG’s Hope City Launch Concert, which took place at the Accra Sports stadium. The concert also featured performances from such acts as R2Bees and a huge surprise performance from Nigeria’s star boy, Wizkid.

Word on the street is – the American Pop Star, who is yet again in Africa for a show, was paid one million dollars for his performance. That is also the same amount that was rumored to have been paid to the star last year for his 22nd December, 2012 show in Lagos.

      Exactly, they wouldn’t complain if a client gave them that amount for their work. I rather pay Chris this amount instead of giving $500,000 to a high class ashawo. And push your artistes to put on great shows and better music(rather than their mediocre work) maybe you wouldn’t rely on these foreigners for better shows.

    LOL apparently it was really good. It could have been worse. He could have showed up on stage for two minutes and been paid the 1 mill, or he could have made people trek for 1 hour to get to the venue and then proceed to start at midnight.

    Guys calm down… the word used is “Allegedly” …. I remember that even P Squared was Allegedly paid a million to perform as well in an African country. There is no worshipping of an american in this matter, CB is a global star hence the reason you decided to click this link and now you know about the project in Ghana.

    $1 million dollars ke? Nkwasia sem akwa kwa – Nsemfo eni Eshi sem kwa. Chris Brown? WTF is Chris Brown.

    Whether its alleged or not – i wont pay this hienna of a crack addict a $1 to perform. Stop praising these Illuminati idiots and letting them be your children role model.

    You voted a corrupt president who stole the votes, you currently dont have any lights, water and petrol and gas prices are way up high, 6 yr olds are still hawking on the streets, women are dying at korle bu during child birth, all our roads are fcked up in all 4 corners of the nation, and then you are going to pay a million dollars to this demonic Illuminati idiot who doesnt even have much time to live with his heroine addicted self and his Illuminati punching bag girlfriend.

    africans and our fcked up priorities. Sometimes i wish the british colonials never left cos even if they stole and chopped our monies and gold none the less they will make sure infrastructure is in place cos they will be using it to and they like nothing but the best.

    HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY MY A$$ – MSCHEWWW. I have no hope for my nation Ghana anymore and to think we were the first africans to gain independence from the british 57 years ago today March 6th. Dont let the media fool you, yes middle income earners have risen but that is only 2% of the population, 98% of the population are suffering and if you are wealthy and will turn a blind eye to this then i feel sorry for you. With this type of president who stole votes sitting in office, we are doomed. This bull shyt is going on in too many African countries not just ghana. I have said my peace.

      @ maame, what is this? If u r soo furious why dnt u write a letter to d prez himself? BTW did d prez invite chris brown to perform? Or is he d electoral commissioner to steal votes? Madam get ur facts right b4 u pour rubbish n whether u like it or yes d ctry has moved on so u berra move on… Moreover is it ur money? if RLG has decided to spend their money on CB howz dat ur beef…


      March 7, 2013 at 12:37 pm

      Eventho i dont subsribe to the alleged amount CB got paid, i still dont get your rant. You need to chill out. If you dont have hope for Ghana anymore, some of us still do and the fact that your political candidate didnt win doesnt mean u shud give urself a heart attack. Waow. You really need Jesus some good TLC in your life babe. Take a chill pill. Chei.

    I don’t know why people are making noise. If these shows remain unattended then maybe they will stop paying these “Americans” so much money. But noooo, they announce the celebrity’s name and all the tickets are sold out. By the way, it is not the government paying for these shows, it is the promoters and their sponsors. Sponsors especially in the telecoms industry who rip us off every single day of our lives, yet we do not complain. Pls all if you should stop making noise jare,

    Can they pay 2face 10m naira? D answer is no. Our stars are overrated in terms of quality songs but underrated in terms of show fees. D likes of 2face n P Square are xtremely overrated when it comes to quality songs but I still think they deserve larger fees since they pull crowd @least in West Africa. Chris B is a globally known talented r&b star (whether illuminati or no illuminati) but I can’t pay him $1m for a show even if am richer dan Obama n Dangote put together. I prefer d likes of Wiz Khalifa, Maroon 5, Usher, Ne-Yo, Justin Bieber, Drake, Pitbull, Nicki Minaj, Kelly Rowland, Trey Songz, etc. How much was Wizkid paid? 5 hundred thousand naira I guess.

      You live under a rock obviously. Yes, people like Psquare get paid well over 10million niara for shows depending on where and when. Get your facts right!

      People will just be yarning anyhow, when they dont even know what obtains for their artistes back yard. Wizkid wasn’t on the billing so no idea if he was paid or not, but on a normal day when he is billed to perform and is invited he also attracts a very good amount as do most of the top rated artistes

    Chris commands between $100,000 to $500,000 for concerts…….others are
    #1 Kanye West – $3 million sweet 16
    #1 Jay-Z – $3 million sweet 16
    #2 Eminem – $3.3 million for two nights at UK festival ($66k per song)
    #3 50 Cent – $2 million for Gadafi’s son (later donated to charity)
    #4 Rihanna – $800,000
    #5 Lil Wayne – $500,000
    #6 Drake – $155,000
    #7 Nicki Minaj – $150,000
    #8 Akon – $120,000
    #9 T.I. – $110,000
    #10 Snoop Dogg – $105,000
    #11 Rick Ross – $100,000
    #12 Ludacris -$90,000
    #13 Pitbull – $85,000
    #14 B.o.B – $80,000
    #15 Wiz Khalifa – $75,000

    by the way, i think organizers sometimes let inaccurate figures hang in the air to make themselves look good…still do not believe Kardashian was paid $500k..

    Been ages i posted any comment on BN, so kudos to Chyke for literally dragging me out. Biko do not say what you do not know about the fact that Tubaba and P’Square can not be paid 10million each for an event. My brother CHIKE, they pay them that and MORE.
    Hian! 10million nkiti !!!

    @wiklo, you did well getting the stats for different artistes but bear in mind that they are coming to africa, terror-ridden Nigeria, so do you think your analysis holds water? Naturally they will demand double what they get paid on a normal day so you are very very wrong

    @Ada, purpose is for analysis to let people know it would likely double outside any crooner’s comfort zone…never meant to say this is what they charge for the likes of Afghanistan or Liberia…
