Gregory Bortey Newman, known widely in showbiz as King Promise, has incurred the wrath of many Ghanaian showgoers.
The anger comes when the singer refuses to show up at “Wizkid Live Accra” concert, a recent show in Accra that had the singer’s friend, Wizkid, as the headliner.
His refusal to show up follows the Nigerian singer’s no-show record, which made fans really disappointed after they paid huge sums of money to attend.
His reason for the action, as cited in his apology note, was a “safety issue,” which seems to have worsened the case, as netizens thought he just wanted to obey the command of his “boss,” Wizkid, and disappoint his people.
Even though he clarified in a recent interview that his allegiance is to his country and not Wizkid, many Ghanaians have decided to boycott his upcoming “Promise Land” concert on the basis that he may refuse to show up after they have paid for tickets.
They have called on him to go and “import” fans from other countries to attend the show, indicating that his tickets, which go for GHS500 and GHS250 for VIP and regular respectively are very expensive coming from a “small” artist like him.
