Kwame Dadzie Highlights 5 Reasons Shatta Wale’s Reign Concert Recorded Low Patronage.

Published

on

The fact that Shatta Wale is the artiste with the biggest fan base in Ghana is no gainsaying.

This has been evident in shows he has organized in the past and the responsiveness to his call by his fans even on social media.

Last year, Shatta Wale made a big statement in the history of music in Ghana; he filled the auditorium of the biggest Dome in Ghana at the moment (15,000 capacity), the Fantasy to the gills.

Aside from that, there were scores of people outside the auditorium who had either not had access to the Dome or just passed through to enjoy the ambience.

This year, however, the numbers were lower; the auditorium was half empty (you can say “half-full”) and the people outside were not as many as last year’s.

I had not expected to see such an attendance.

While at it, I decided to do some brainstorming to find out what could have contributed to the low patronage.

https://www.facebook.com/kwamedadzie/videos/2947129818649943/

1. Low Publicity: The publicity for the event was not as intense as last year’s. The ‘Reign Album’ came with a lot of promotional strategies including the logos and paraphernalia. Up till now, these regalia are selling on the market. ‘Wonder Boy’ did not enjoy that.

2. The Maiden Edition: Last year’s Reign Concert was not the first time Shatta Wale had organized a show for his audience but it was the first time he put together a paid-for show in such a huge auditorium. It was also the launch of his ‘Reign Album’, an album that has been giving so much hype as ‘unprecedented’ in the history of Ghanaian music.

3. The Shatta-Stone Rivalry: It appears the peace between Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy has quenched the razzmatazz that comes with activities involving the two acts. Last year, there was a euphoria with whether Shatta could fill the Fantasy Dome, just to prove a point to Stonebwoy. Since the beef was squashed there seems to have been no motivation for events organized by the two acts. There was no suspense for this year’s Reign Concert.

4. The Rate: Last year, the tickets for Regular attendees was GHc 20 and VIP, GHc 50. This enabled most of Shatta Wale’s core fans to get access to the show. This year, the rate was pegged at 50gh regular and 100gh VIP.

5. The NAM 1 Factor: Shatta Wale was blessed while with Zylofon Music record label, a company that is owned by Nana Appiah Mensah aka NAM1. Obviously, he had financial support from the record label last year. This year, however, Zylofon Music which is owned by NAM1 whose gold dealership company had been closed by the Securities and Exchange Commission for not having the right documents has been inactive. Aside from that, it had been announced that Shatta’s contract with the company had expired. This means he may not have had enough financial resources to promote this year’s Reign Concert.

He also revealed that, the freedom from disturbance; tranquillity or peace, uninterrupted flow of electrical power and the friendly and generous reception and entertainment of guests, visitors, or strangers; hospitality nature of Ghanaians has made the country the preferred location on the African continent and in the West African region, respectively, to host Africa's edition of the festival.

Ghana’s stunning coastline runs 560 kilometres from Aflao in the Volta Region to Cape Three Points in the Western Region. With an average temperature of 30 degrees in December, it’s no surprise that we’ve chosen this incredible location as our next festival destination. Amazing beaches can be found in abundance along the Ghana coastline, the ever-popular Laboma Beach being one of them. Just five miles south of Accra’s Kotoka International Airport, Laboma will turn into a festival paradise.

Meanwhile, speaking in an interview with www.georgebritton.com's budding Journalist; Gerrard-Israel, Mr. Adesegun Adeosun Jr. revealed that, a cross section of Nigerian entertainment couriers (gatekeepers) and the creative arts & culture practitioners are having some detasteful feeling towards him for not hosting the festival in Nigeria. According to him, the gatekeepers stated that, hosting the project in Nigeria would have increased the per capital income of the country, and also boost tourism.
