“”He deserved it and mainly they want to spoil my name. He organized a show with my name on the bill, posters and radio adverts which was all around”, Bandana explained about what happened.
Bandana went on saying that Ex Doe later called him after the posters and radio adverts were already out.
“Ex-Doe called me and i said he should have informed me before putting my name on bill but he said that’s why he has called me now. My management team was so mad about what Ex-Doe did and they asked him to pay a performance fee of 3000 GHC to which he said he could afford only 200 GHC”.
With aforementioned money, Bandana’s manager told Ex-Doe that he will report him to the police station and what even made it worse was that, it took over a week to get Ex-Doe on phone again because he was playing ‘hide and seek’ with Bandana’s team.
After numerous failed attempts, they finally got him for an oral agreement a day before the show and met him.
Bandana’s objective was to get his performance fee but Ex-Doe still insisted on the paying him the 200GHC.
“He thought I was joking and I told him, if he doesn’t pay me then I will have to settle this with him at the police station which I did and the police understood my story and detained him for two days.
Ex-Doe was charged with impersonation but as at now Ex-Doe has been released on bail as they are still on talks about payments.
Before ending, Bandana sent out a strong warning to promoters out there who use his and other musicians name without informing them on their events.
