CEO of Bullhaus Entertainment, Lawrence Nana Asiamah Hanson known in showbiz as Bulldog has blamed the chaotic incident between Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy, which occurred at the just ended 20th Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs) at the doorstep of security.
According to him, the organizers of the event, Charterhouse didn’t put in much work to prevent the brawl from happening.
Speaking on Citi TV‘s Point on View on Monday, Bulldog said Ghana’s entertainment security is the lowest when it comes to debate on any day.
”See Bernard, Entertainment Security is the weakest we have in this Country because it is a specialty. There’s no company doing it. If Shatta comes here now, If Stonebwoy, Samini comes here now, even on individual bases, and you have high level of security here, it will break down all because of their various fans.” he said.
According to him, matters of security that event organizers place on their shows has been a major problem all these years.
On the same show, Communications Head for Charterhouse Ghana, George Quaye disagreed with Bulldog’s assertion and termed it as misinformation.
According to George, the brawl that occurred during the event cannot be attributed to security lapses on the part of the event Organisers, Charterhouse.
“The issue goes beyond security. You will expect an act to know that if I get up here, or if I do this, this is what will happen… Another act should also know that this is what is happening, or the act manager knows that this not the place where I draw out a weapon,” he said.
He explained, they had security presence, both clothed and unclothed, at the perimeters, backstage, on the stage, entrance plus some even seated among the audience.
“We had close to about 85 security personnel on the ground and in the auditorium. When we were entering the premises, they had this frisk [they used]… That was the security plan that we had,” he indicated.
