Artistes Performing At Trace Music Awards And Festival Won’t Get Paid

Artistes set to perform at Trace Music Awards and Festival in Rwanda this October will not earn a penny. This was confirmed by Nelson Tavares, one of the organizers of the event during a press conference held in Kigali on Tuesday, 26 September.

Trace Music Awards are one of the biggest music awards in Africa. Famous musicians all over Africa like Nigeria, South Africa and other countries are expected to come and perform.

Most of these musicians usually perform where there is money. Most of them are difficult to even book because they are always fixed throughout the whole year.

It is rare to find someone like Davido, Burna Boy performing anywhere they are not given enough money.

“None of the performers participating in the Trace Festival and Trace Awards, set to take place in Kigali from October 20 to 22, received any payment,” The organizer said

The lineup of performers includes Nigerian mega stars Davido, Olamide, Yemi Alade and Fireboy DML. It should be noted that even Trace gospel will also be well presented with performances from gospel Musicians.

These include Rwanda’s ALU gospel choir, the world-famous Soweto Gospel Choir, Kenya’s Janet Otieno, Uganda’s Levixone, and South Africa’s Benjamin Dube and “Jerusalema” singer Nomcebo.

Burna Boy who was expected to perform declined because of the payments.
