“Organizers Wouldn’t Have Snatched The Microphone From Sanimi If He Was A Paid Artiste” – Ramzey Laments



An upcoming musician, Noah Tettey known in the music scene as Ramzey has shared his piece of mind why his colleague musician who is also an upcoming artiste was disrespected by the MC at the Bryt Tv Lowki Jersey Party.

Sanimi who was billed to perform was only given the chance to perform under one minute.

Questioning the organizers, he mentioned that, if it was to be Fameye or any other limelight artiste, would they have treated him like that?
“It deals with respect but because they don’t respect upcoming artistes, they chose to treat him as such”, he added.

He also made it known that, because the organizers saw it as a favor by promoting his songs and moreover Sanimi not being a paid artiste, they decided to treat him anyhow.

He ended with an advice to all upcoming artistes saying, if possible they should charge according to the time they will perform, or they should get the right schedules of every show from their managers correctly before stepping on the stage.
