George Quaye, who seems to always have issues with artistes is in the news again, for allegedly disrespecting (or what can be seen as righting some wrongs in the industry) Flow KIng Stone of the "Bradez fame" in Kumasi at the recent Tigo Music Unplugged. According to trusted sources, Stone was late for the show which resulted in the truncation of his performers by the organisers. Unpleased Stone who felt unsatisfied by that move, expressed himself to his fans conveying a message that, Kumasi artistes were always not acknowledged, a comment George Quaye thought was infantile and unfair. The presenter took to facebook saying:
“Indiscipline is;
1. When an artiste fails to report to event venues on time
2. Fails to understand, appreciate and accommodate the challenges of ‘his employer’ (whoever is paying for the gig he’s playing) and rather responds to it by childishly spewing some brand demeaning ‘garbage’ on stage.
3. Disrespects and plays the rather childish tribe card on stage because he refuses to understand the concept of ‘he that pays the Piper calls the tune’
4. When an artiste/his or her manager allows all manner of ‘hooligans’ to flood or flank his or her performance stage as though they desperately need that brief moment of fame to live till eternity.
Lack of exposure, coordination, craft and showmanship is;
1. When an artist mounts the stage with only a show CD and no art whatsoever.
2. When an artiste feels that at every opportunity, he or she must perform an entire album plus songs that haven’t even been written yet.
3. When an artiste refuses to gauge the response of his audience and perform accordingly.
4. When an artiste cannot tell the differences between various types of shows. Every show has its unique brand, identity, deliverables and expectations. You can’t play them all the same way.
And oh, finally, event organizers, me included should also learn to understand that having 101 artistes on one show, doesn’t always, necessarily make it the best show ever organized. Sometimes just a few very good artistes makes a show more memorable and appreciable. It’s always best to leave the fans/audience begging for more than asking themselves “when are we closing…?”
Come Tuesday on THE PUNDITS, I will step on a toe or two…and rightly so. Like my good friend Kelly Nii Lartey Mensa says, ?#?thenonsensemuststop!
The angry fans of Flow King Stone on seeing this also took to social media to throw shots at George Quaye:
