Ghanaian Celebrity Blogger Schools Artists and Organizers at Vodafone 020 Live Concert on Professionalism!

Well! I guess I am not the only one that calls people out when they need to be called out. What do you know? Read an excerpt of what Ghana’s celebrity blogger Ameyaw Debrah has to say about the event that was Vodafone 020 Live concert.
“When R2bees were called on stage to perform at the Vodafone 020 Live concert and they didn’t turn up, I posted on Twitter that they had bailed out on the organizers intuitively and people started asking questions that I didn’t have answers to. Later in the night, when the group popped up to perform ‘Kiss Your Hand’ with Wande Coal and moved on to perform their new single ‘Agyeii’ I thought perhaps the show was rearranged to have Wande Coal and R2bees perform their hit song together.

The group told the crowd “we were here early but they didn’t want us to perform” and I interpreted it to mean that the organizers didn’t want them to perform earlier because they wanted to include Wande Coal ( who came in between Dbanj’s performance) in R2bee’s performance so I explained it as such on Twitter. But later I received a communication from the management of R2bees which said:

“A lot of things happened at the backstage; there was a little miscommunication that was the reason why R2bees didn’t appear on stage when they were called. It wasn’t our fault. And we also want the general public and event organizers to know that, if they are not ready to spend money to organize a good show, they shouldn’t even bother to start arrangements. And it’s about time they respect the local artists and treat them right, and give them what they want for shows. . .”
