cassandradwumah commented:

Next time, when you take money from a client obey the contract. He did the same thing to his formal management, but he is the 'recent lover boy of Ghanaians' so they keep supporting this nonsense. He should continue with this dirty ego.

citizen_milla commented:

If you pay money to an artiste management and the artiste refuses to show up, do you have to arrest the artiste?

music_alexand commended:

This for real. I don't get it. If you've been paid to perform you ought to deliver. If not, refund and explain. Why take money and confirm receipt but not show up. If this is true, then Blacko do yawa. We celebrate him, but if he acts unprofessional, we need to let him know I see some hypocritical comments already.
