There were speculations that gospel musician Sonnie Badu was paid $50,000 for his performance during the launch of the national cathedral project in the US.
However, in a reply to a tweet sighted by nanaoseiike.com, the popular gospel musician and pastor denied ever being paid.
According to Sonnie, he was not given money and on top of that, no member of his team was offered a seat in the program.
“They claimed to have paid SONNIE BADU $50,000 for a song ministration at the launch in the US. Now he has come out to say he was not given a dime and not even a seat was offered to him and his team. So who took the $50,000? Surely the Trustees do NOT know about this! Again, they claimed to have paid GHS30,000 to each of the gospel artistes who ministered at the launch here in Accra. Can those artistes also confirm if they received these monies?” parts of Sam George’s Facebook read.
The fundraiser for the construction of the National Cathedral project was held at the Museum of the Bible in Washington DC back in 2019. The event was attended by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and other dignitaries.
