JamRock’s Accusations are False – Mr Drew Replies

The statement claimed JamRock Event Centre failed to fulfil the initial contractual agreement by refusing to pay the remaining 50% of the fee before he performed on stage. He said the lack of clear communication about payment schedules fueled the confusion.

Ghanaian Highlife and Afrobeat artist, Mr Drew, has refuted allegations made against him by JamRock Event Centre, that he failed to perform at the Easter Dance Party despite receiving part payment.

In a press release sighted by The Accra Times, Mr Drew claims the accusations levelled against him are completely false.

The statement claimed JamRock Event Centre failed to fulfil the initial contractual agreement by refusing to pay the remaining 50% of the fee before he performed on stage. He said the lack of clear communication about payment schedules fueled the confusion.

“The Organisers were required to pay 50% of the amount to confirm the booking. The remaining 50% was agreed to be paid to him on the day of the event before his performance,” the statement read.
According to the statement, the event organizers demanded that he perform at the show despite the incomplete payment.

“The event organisers refused to make payment and rather demanded that Mr. Drew moved to the event first citing the low turnout as the reason for their refusal to make payment,” the statement clarified.
