The Founder of Bull Haus entertainment, Bull Dog has described the
decision by some of his colleagues in the entertainment industry to
embark on a vigil against the ongoing power crisis as a "dumb idea"
Though he believes the "power rationing issue is a genuine one
plaguing the nation," he asserts that his colleagues had "missed the
point" by deciding to join the fray."
I say kudos to the political strategist who conceived this dumb idea,
and to my colleagues who bought into the idea, I say its sad.
It's a hypocritical approach to a dire national issue, but hey, whatdo
I know! In politics morals don't come to play," said the manager
ofdancehall artiste, Shatta Wale.
The vigil which is being championed by award winning actress Yvonne
Nelson and other entertainment icons is to pressurise government to
resolve the three-year-old crisis.
However, Bulldog, who believes his colleagues are being exploited by
some politicians to promote their interests, expressed his misgivings
about the development saying, "entertainers have failed to exhibit
seriousness in their enterprise and have been taken for granted for a
long time and going on a vigil won't change the perception about
them"He therefore advised his colleagues deeply involved in the
upcoming event to rather apply their quest for the right things to be
done in the entertainment industry."
As entertainers, If we are rooting for the right things to be done, we
must first apply it in our illustriouscircles.
By mounting incessant pressure on our arts ministry, even if we have
one, to set up proper and potent structures/Yes indeed, constant flow
of power is imperative to run our diseased industry, but it's a
quarter of our humongous.
"He acknowledged that though Nigeria had the worse energy crisis in
the world, Ghana can not compare its art industry to theirs.
"We need power as a people to run a profitable economy, but its our
national duty and responsibility to preserve it."
