Amapiano Sensation, DJ Azonto disclosed that he was paid half of Shatta Wale’s £80,000 Performance fee at the Ghana Musuc Awards UK 2023.
In an interview on Asempa 94.7 FM, DJ Azonto stated that he received £40,000 as payment for his performance at the Ghana Music Awards UK 2023.
This revelation came in the midst of the recent dispute between Shatta Wale and Akwasi Aboagye, who had challenged the reggae-dancehall musician’s claim of an £80,000 performance fee.
However, DJ Azonto highlighted that he was treated fairly by Alordia, the event organizer of GMAUK, claiming he received full payment even before the show.
‘Alordia not only paid him the full amount but also covered his expenses, including meals and drinks during my stay in a hotel’.
When asked how much he was paid, DJ Azonto explained in an interview that “You know Shatta Wale is a senior man, so I received half of what Shatta Wale received, which is £40,000.”
