Bet you are familiar with the saying “All that glitters is not gold” This might be a clear example. BET’s Best International Act : Africa 2015 winner and Ghana Music Award Artiste of the year 2015 winner Stonebwoy, apparently turned down a $80,000 Ambassadorial Deal with telecommunications network Glo.
Your first thought might be… “is he nuts!”,
well probably not. Stonebwoy allegedly turned down the offer stating that he is worth a better deal. The deal apparently restricted him from performing at events sponsored by rival brands.
This is obviously a wise decision on his part and management because most of the top notch concerts/events in Ghana alone are sponsored by other Telecommunication giants. What do you think, was it smart or not?
