Sarkodie, Shatta Wale to perform at Premier League venues


Kwesi Nyantakyi has revealed the Ghana FA has signed an agreement for top notch musicians to perform at Premier League venues next season. The GFA is exploring ways to boost patronage of games in the Ghanaian top flight. Attendance to Premier League matches have been appalling over the years mainly due to the lacking presence of established and exciting players.

Clubs in Ghana keep losing their best players to foreign clubs due to relatively poor working conditions in the country. The GFA is now making direct efforts to enhance patronage of league matches by signing an agreement to have some of the top performers in Ghana thrill and entertain fans at venues. This initiative will however be conducted on a pilot basis to gauge its success before a full-scale implementation is made.

“We have signed an agreement to have musicians perform at league centers with the likes of Shatta Wale and Sarkodie all included,” GFA President Kwesi Nyantakyi.

This will be done on a pilot basis at limited venues due to cost until it is fully implemented at all league centers. These are some of the innovations we are bringing on board. If Shatta Wale or Sarkodie are performing at the stadium, a minimum of GH?10 is charged but we are looking at ways to reduce this cost. Kwesi Nyantakyi had earlier announced a devised strategy of using attractive ladies to draw people to the stadiums.
