Shots fired!
The Scoop talk show host, Rachael Taye held nothing back when she addressed the lack of support from Liberian artists and promoters in Minnesota during DenG Minnesota concert.

DenG concert in Minnesota - Rachael Taye

My love for Liberian music will never die. I will continue to push our artists and our music to the top.
I was very disappointed in the turn up at Deng concert this gone weekend. Liberian artists, and promoters in Minnesota didn’t show up at all, instead they were at baby showers. These people shouldn’t be consider role models in our community. Piff ENT was at a party promoting Nigerian artist Tekno. When asked, he said, "Deng show ain’t got nothing to do with me." When I heard that, I was shocked. As a promoter, why would you say that? Because you wasn’t getting paid, you couldn’t go and support?  He should be strip off his title as a producer, or manager in our industry.  Alaric ENT also a promoter/manager never attended the concert either.  His artist Bigg Timee didn’t come out to show his love either.  If we don’t support one another, how do we expect the community to do the same? Ralph 
Polo, Ralph Tolbert and King Gucci runs a club every Saturday. They never show up to support. Now, I know these guys don’t always be at the club every weekend, you guys couldn’t for once come out to support our artist? What a shame. Tsee Whale, Elmes Mulbah, and the rest of Roc citti didn’t attend the concert, but they were the same ones criticizing the LEA CEO Tarkus Zonen, about not caring for Liberian artists. I think he is more supportive than the rest of you all. If he was here, he would’ve went to show his support. You guys are all hypocrites. You want to criticize other people, but can’t practice what you preached? Roc citti paid money to bring Ruff N Smooth to perform in Minnesota last year, they all promoted like their life depended on it, but when it comes to their own Liberian artist, they don’t want to promote, or even support. None of these individuals should be given title in our community, they don’t deserve to be leaders. They can work together to support other nationality, but can’t come together to support their very own. I shouldn’t see any of you posting about supporting Liberian
artists, because you guys don’t.  Few lib artists went to show their support to Deng.  G rise performed and told his fans how proud he was of his Liberian brother, now that’s love right there.  Also xten, and David mell also attended the concert. Deng did recognized Mell and ask him to join him on the stage which brought tears to my eyes. I was so happy to see that unity among them. My love for my people, my country will never die, as long as I live. Liberian music is taking off, and I will make sure they get the recognition they deserve in the entertainment industry.

  1. I personally absolutely agree with you on this article Rachel Taye. You said it well. Regardless of the differences between the liberian promoters and larry B. They should have still going out there to show their support. Then they can discuss every other issues later after the concert.

Liberia: Spoon Tv Has Been Accused of Being a Government Operative

Spoon TV has risen to prominence as a platform for unfiltered news, political viewpoints, and social concerns. Unfortunately for the television network, the recent visit of their team to Liberia has led to some people questioning their objectives and ethics, which is unfortunate for them. Check out few post on the subject from fans around the world. "This is your Spoon TV Crew in Liberia hobnobbing with the CDC Government. My issue is not that they are meeting the Government. I believe in constructive engagement and the Government represent all Liberians. My issue is, this is the same Spoon TV that faults everybody of being in cohort with the government once they hear gossip about you being friends with the CDC folks. This same Spoon TV was disrespectfully calling out my name on their wretched show to come and appear because Jerome Verdier accused me of meeting with Jefferson Koigee and George Weah, as if it is a crime or sin to engage the CDC government or even know or talk
