|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.
