Accra FM has no stimulus package for interviewees, thus Nana Romeo has no right to disrespect Kidi—Bulldog
Renowned manager, Bulldog has expressed dissatisfaction about the manner, a presenter from Accra FM treated Sensational Highlife artiste, Kidi for arriving late to an interview.
According to him, the presenter could have handled the situation with lots of professionalism without shaming the singer.
Speaking on United Showbiz as spotted by Spot On News, Bulldog stated that the station in question did not have any stimulus package for artistes who get invited to their shows, hence did not deserve any special treatment.
He noted that the station act strictly to the extent that they would not even serve their guests with neither a drink nor water.
Bulldog indicated that any artiste who go to the station for interviews go on their own peril, adding that they bear their own cost and receive nothing essential in return.
“Nana Romeo disrespected Kidi because no matter how late he was, he arrived at the show. He apologised for arriving late therefore Romeo could have held back his anger and continue the show without anyone feeling any negative energy. He wrongly sold the brand of Accra FM to the world,” he added.
In ensuring artiste heed to time, the manager urged media to add enticing packages to their shows to ginger guests to act accordingly.
However, entertainment pundit Arnold Asamoah-Baidoo in his submission disapproved Kidi’s behaviour, saying he did not apologise in a respectful manner.
He stated that Nana Romeo acted professionally by demanding answers from the artiste as it was not his first time of acting in that manner.
“It is about time entertainers begin to respect presenters and shows as the entertainers work closely with the media personalities,” Mr Baidoo stated.
He maintained that the action of the Accra FM presenter would send signals to other musicians for them to respect time and arrived early for live shows.
Nana Romeo on Wednesday invited Kidi to his show, however the artiste was more than 25minutes late, which led the presenter to cancel the interview.
He explained that Kidi showed disrespect to his show for the third time and had to confront him for disrespecting a noble show that has massive audience.
The Presenter stated that he announced to his listeners and audience about the interview with Kidi and were all glued to their seats with some sending him questions they wanted to ask Kidi.
He indicated that he played Kidi’s track for more than 20 minutes and had to change the play list because the artiste was not arriving and it was left with 25 minutes to end the show.
“My producer called the artiste early in the morning before the show, we called him several times when the time was running. Kidi did same to me the other time and promised to arrive the next day for the interview, which he did not show up at all and the third time he came in quite late. This is uncalled for,” Nana Romeo bemoaned.
