Bulldog, the stage name of artist manager Lawrence Nana Asiamah Hanson, has advised event planners and producers to detain performers who refuse to take the stage after being paid.
Bulldog believes that performers who purposefully skip out on gigs after getting paid are breaking the law and need to be held accountable.
Bulldog discussed his thoughts on the arrest of Nigerian musician Kizz Daniel by Tanzanian authorities in an interview on Hitz FM on Tuesday, August 9, 2022.
After refusing to perform at a concert where supporters reportedly paid $5,000 for a table simply to see him play, Kizz Daniel was apprehended by Tanzanian police. According to reports, enraged fans wrecked mayhem when the singer declined to accept the offer.
The organizers of the Summer Amplified Show in Tanzania arrested the Buga hitmaker for failing to perform at the publicized show.
In response to the incident, Bulldog stated that he approves of the organizers’ course of action and asked other organizers to follow like.
“It is a scam for a musician to take the money and not show up to perform. We have to start arresting people here in Ghana”, he indicated.
