But to Loggy,It was their own laziness, childish behavior and refusal to promote their own show that cost them the lost. He added that Loggy Entertainment invested over Ghc40,000 into the events but didn’t make up to Ghc10,000.
Kindly check out Loggy’s statement below!
“The office of Loggy Entertainment attention has been drawn to Facebook post by rapper Medikal a few hours ago declaring Papa Loggy wanted and that whoever finds and provides him will be given a reward of Ghc5000.
Loggy Entertainment presents you the full story as it happened.
Joey B contacted Loggy Entertainment to put together a three city show for him after observing our works with other artistes. The shows were to be played at Techiman, Berekum and Sunyani. Our outfit was to bare the entire cost of the shows. Proceeds from the event was agreed to be split on a 60/40 percentage. 60% for organizer – Loggy Entertainment and 40% for Artiste – Joey B. In the course of preparations towards the shows, Medikal’s involvement popped up and he became part of the show. So Loggy Entertainment and Joey B agreed to make Joey B and Medikal the headline artistes for the 3 shows.
Initial dates for the events were fixed to be 1st, 2nd and 3rd of September but Joey B who was out of town at the time suggested that the dates be pushed ahead. So new dates 9th 10th and 11th were fixed for the three cities respectively.
Loggy Entertainment took care of traveling expenses, accommodation, publicity, promotion, welfare,venue, logistics and production cost. Interviews were arranged to enable the headline artistes promote the events in each city.
When the time came for Joey B and Medikal to set off from Accra to Techiman on thursday, both artistes made excuses and failed to arrive at Techiman. Flightsarrangements were changed to enable them arrive on Friday morning 9am at Kumasi. Medikal made it to Kumasi early Friday morning leaving Joey B in Accra. He later arrived around 2:30pm at Kumasi Airport. We got to Techiman at about 5pm and could only attend one interview out of the lots lined up for us.
Unfortunately, it rained heavily that night so we cancelled the show. We did not earn a penny from Techiman.
On the 10th, we set off to Berekum. Upon arrival, Medikal and Joey B refused to attend interviews to promote their own show. Not even social media update to promote the show. They kept on giving excuses and spent majority of their time on their phones. Eventually we staged the Berekum show which saw low turn out. We made just Ghc5,550 gate proceeds which we split into 60/40 percentage. Joey and Medikal got their 40% share.
Then we moved on to Sunyani the following day for the final show at Tyco pool side. Over there, we had to pay Ghc4000 for the venue. Loggy Entertainment made a deposit of Ghc2000 and staged the event. We were only able to make Ghc 1500 at the gate which we used to make part payment of the remaining Ghc2000. We eventually had to leave the venue and head to Kumasi that evening because Medikal had been billed to perform on Lil Win’s show that same night. Even though we all agreed to move to Kumasi and leave the Tyco pool side show for the venue owner to handle, Joey B and Medikal on our way, returned to the venue to perform with the excuse of satisfying their fans. We weren’t happy with that move and we expressed our displeasure. E
