Ghanaian dancehall artist-Ebony decided to “swindle’ a Volta Region based Event organiser who paid her 35,000 GHS and spent over 13,000 making stage preparations by failing to show up, GhanaCelebrities.Com has been told.
We’ve watched a video and listened to an audio from Ebony (below) promoting a concert at the Majestic Ville Resort in Hoehoe which was scheduled for January 2 but Ebony failed to show up, despite the organiser’s huge preparation cost and herself having been paid.
According to one of the organisers, a few hours to the event when the stage was almost complete, Ebony’s manager called to tell them that the artist is sick and therefore wouldn’t be able to make an appearance.
Interestingly, Ebony appeared on Fella Makafui’s SnapChat the same night, chilling at a pub in Accra.
The SnapChat appearance together with the absence of any evidence to back the claim from the manager that Ebony was indeed sick and their request for such evidence having not been met, one thing keeps running through the heads of the organisers—that they’ve been taken for granted and Ebony was not sick in any way.
The non-appearance of the Ebony which led to the cancellation of the whole concert would go a long way to affect the Volta Region-based company that produces alcoholic bitters, called “K Monsi Bitters,” the main sponsor and financier of the event.
The organisers say, Ebony deliberately failed to show up after booking the concert and this has cost them a lot.
Not only has Ebony’s failure to show up cost the Event organisers a lot in cash, they’ve also suffered a reputational damage as the crowd who gathered at the venue, regular patrons of their events, went home totally livid.
We’ve been told Ebony’s team has refunded the 35000 GHS that was paid but what remains unpaid is the cost of the preparation; the stage, lighting, advertisement and other consequential costs—which if not settled, would result in a lawsuit.
