Budding artiste, Gregory Bortey Newman, known by his stage name King Promise has said being a new artiste in the music industry puts him in tight corner when it comes to charging to perform at high-powered events.
He said, as a promising act, it is obvious he can’t demand same amount for shows as what other A-list artistes like Shatta Wale and Sarkodie will ask for.
King Promise asserted that to get more recognition as other popular artistes, he prefers to perform free.
“I still perform for free at some events because I can’t charge event organisers like Shatta Wale and others as a new artiste.” He told Delay.
