Zylofon Music’s Artiste and Repertoire manager, Lawrence Hanson, popularly known as Bulldog has explained why dancehall artists Samini and Stonebwoy were denied entry to and subsequent performance at the Reign concert.
According to him, that the management team of Shatta Wale prevented Stonebwoy and Samini from attending the Reign Concert because they had to protect them.
Speaking toAndy Dosty on Daybreak Hitz on Monday, October 15, he explained the decision to prevent the two dancehall artistes from attending the show was the best.
“It would have been something else if they had come on stage. …It would have been a little bit chaotic”, Bulldog explained.
According to Bulldog, the team had chanced on several social media posts of Shatta Movement fans threating to destroy Sarkodie’s car if he showed up at the event. He further added that Stonebwoy onced mentioned that Shatta Wale would have been killed if Ghana was Jamaica. For such reasons, the management team decided it would be more prudent to protect the artistes by preventing them from showing up at the Fantasy Dome.
“We saw a video by Stonebwoy where he said that if Ghana were Jamaica, Shatta Wale would have been killed. …We chanced on a post on social media that said if Sarkodie came, they would have broken his car…”
Bulldog further added that Shatta Wale was informed of Samini and Stonebwoy’s gesture of support after the concert.
This is however different from a comment Bulldog left on Facebook hours after the event.
Barely 48 hours after the Reign Concert, Samini expressed congratulated Shatta Wale for the successfully held concert but jabbed him for denying himself and Stonebwoy entry.
Shatta Wale quickly apologized and pleaded innocence of the act. He revealed, he had no knowledge of the said incidence.
Stonebwoy, however, feels, Shatta Wale’s response is just a way to look good in the eye of the people as he knew about it.
