Dark Side of Liberian Entertainment : DenG Turns Down Quincy B for MTN Concert

2 December 2016 / Berenice Mulubah

DenG and Quincy B
Unity is a very popular word written by Liberian musicians on social media. "We need to unite and support each other," they write consistently on their social media pages.  How much sacrifices are these artists willing to make to bring about this unity they seek? 

On November 25th, two days to MTN event in Monrovia, Quincy B had a successful show called The Meet. The show was crowd with support from fellow artists like Sweetz, Christoph, PCK and Frankie, Ziggy Ray and many more, but DenG was no show.  
 
The Meet was originally called 'DenG Meet Quincy B', an event which DenG was to battle Quincy B on stage.  DenG agreed to this event and was 100% willing to participate.  Quincy B manager  proposed to MTN for partnership.  MTN agreed to a 50/50 partnership, but later backed out of the deal and so did DenG.  DenG told C Liberia Clearly that he backed out of the deal because he had to travel.  But, did he really? DenG was in Liberia on the 25th of November, the day of the show and he was also available on the 27th of November to participate on MTN show in Monrovia.  Did DenG backed out of the deal because MTN backed out?

Should Liberian artists be a little bit more loyal to each other or should we see this as 'business is business'?  Well, at the end of the day, both events were successful and it is back to business as usual.

  1. “ Unity ” refers to the idea of repetition, staying the same or using similar ideas during a piece of music. Just a handful, can't move Liberian music from where it is now. Artist need their fellow artist cooperatio to help make eachother sucessful. (Unity)keyword

  2. I wish to state clearly that the entertainment industry is no for those who feels they have money and can start managing an artist. We have to take a clue from whats happening in our neighbouring countries. We are actually crawling when it comes to the standards internationally. Its a fact that having the opportunity of being on the same platform with the foreign artist gives our people the exposure.our artists are almost everywhere. We hardly produce good videos, and do good mastering. Our engineering is getting better our songs.are.maturing but we are not there yet. Honestly we need to step up the game and stop blaming others for our shortfalls.artist endorsement deals are both sided. If one can't live up to the obligations of our partnership with companies to the point of ignoring the terms of our arrangements,our partners may not want to work with others due to our own behaviors. Deng is flying the Liberian flag very very high.I had worked with him on an endorsement deal for one year.he is humble and listens. So he will go places. Let's stop the blame game.we have to work on our music and give it what it takes to get there
