One of Ghana’s best songwriter, Peter Fameye, universally known as Fameye, has expressed his discontent with the level of patronage Ghanaians living abroad give to shows organized by Ghanaian Musicians in abroad.
In a recent interview on “TheDayShow” with Berla Mundi, the musician rehashed his view on how low the attendance of Ghanaian shows abroad has been for sometime now.
According to him, the Ghanaian diaspora attitude towards their concerts is nothing to write home about. He stated; “If you ever see revelers cheering us at our shows abroad, a chunk of them are Ghanaians. Even with that, most of them are shy so they don’t attend our subsequent shows. It’s the reason why Ghanaian artist keep canceling their shows abroad”. The rapper turned singer told Berla.
While expressing his dissatisfaction with the posture of of Ghanaians abroad when it comes to events organized by Ghanaian acts, the “Thank You” Hitmaker recounted how his recent event in the UK played out. “I had my show in the UK last week. I was expecting a lot of people but few showed up”. The 2022 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards(VGMA’22) songwriter of the year shared in disappointment how the show couldn’t meet his expectation.
Known for his soothing sounds, the “Songs of Peter” crooner couldn’t hold back his frustration with the discouraging reception Ghanaians shows abroad receive despite the amount of promotion done prior to the event.
