The National Cathedral Secretariat has revealed it has not paid amount of $50,000 to gospel musician Sonnie Badu, during the Fundraising Launch of the facility in the United States of America in 2019.
The response from the Secretariat comes following speculations that the musician had received such an amount.
The musician also reacted denying the claims.
“There are reports of the payment of $50,000 to the singer Sonnie Badu for his performance at the launch of the National Cathedral Fundraising in Washington DC on February 8, 2019. The Secretariat of the National Cathedral has not paid any money, neither is it aware of any such payment, to Sonnie Badu,” a statement signed by Dr. Paul Opoku-Mensah, the Executive Director of the National Cathedral said.
A social media user asked the musician if he was paid $50,000 at the said event.
But the musician denied the claims adding he was not even given a seat together with his team at the event.
An account on Twitter @cecil_kwabena posted: “I’m sure the handlers of @SonnieBaduuk will alert him to clear the air whether he allegedly took $50,000 for singing 5 minutes 15 seconds at the launch of Ghana National Cathedral in USA.”
Sonnie Badu replied to the tweet by saying: “Wow, thanks for alerting me, I was not given a dime… Not even a seat for me and my team. We stood outside.”
