Ghanaian soul singer, Sherifa Gunu, who has had an interesting telecommunications endorsement experience, has pleaded with artistes who sign contracts with telcos to do that with caution.
She revealed to popular controversial Ghanaian OAP, Afia Schwarzeneggar in an interview that she regretted being a brand ambassador for GLO since all efforts to be on big shows of other competing brands proved futile.
According to Sherifa “Glo contract killed my music career since I was unable to perform for other telcos who wanted me to be part of their billed artistes during an event.”
“Even though the money involved in my contract with Glo was satisfactory, I will appeal to my colleague musicians to be vigilant when signing contracts with any telcos in the country” she said.
She also explained that most of the GLO ambassadors have benefited a lot from the GLO deal, but the aspect which has affected their visibility was a clause in their contract that said they were not permitted to perform on any GLO competitor’s platform.
Sherifa is a Ghanaian singer married to a Nigerian businessman, Ikechukwu Sunday – and has three studio albums to her credit.
