“I will not take Ghs 20,000 for shows again, i have invested too much in my craft”- Fameye

During a recent interview with Andy Dosty on Hitz FM, Fameye, the popular highlife artist from Ghana, shared details about the significant investments he has made in his brand.

He mentioned that he purchases expensive clothes, shoes, bags, and other items, as well as spends thousands of cedis on his music videos.

These investments have led him to raise his performance fee, as he feels that he has put in too much effort and resources into his craft to accept lower offers. Fameye expressed that he cannot perform for just Gh20k at events anymore.

Furthermore, Fameye expressed his views on award schemes in Ghana, stating that he believes the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) are superior to the Grammys.

He praised the VGMA for recognizing the hard work of artists and awarding nominations based on merit, without requiring artists or their managers to pay for nominations.

In contrast, he mentioned that the Grammys often involve a lot of behind-the-scenes work by artist managers to secure a nomination.

Overall, Fameye’s interview shed light on his dedication to his music career and his belief in the fairness of the VGMA.

His investments in his brand and his refusal to lower his performance fee demonstrate his commitment to his artistry and his desire to be recognized for his hard work.
