The host of Obaatanpa Radio’s drive-time show has bashed the musical duo for the reason they gave for not granting interviews.
Mr. Chanti known in real life as James Ababio lashed R2bees for branding the media as always focusing on the negatives and described their comment as needless.
According to one half of the group PaeDae also known as Omar Sterling, when some journalists try to cloud chase asking you mischievous questions to create negative headlines and that is the reason they (R2bees) do not grant interviews any more looking at their past experiences.
He made this assertion in an interview with a multimedia journalist when the Tema based guys were quizzed about their recent absenteeism when it comes to interviews.
Mugeez being the other half of the group initially had said, they normally focus on why they attend programs which is to sing and that, interviews are secondary matters to them before Paedae added the reason that has been topic for discussion for the past few days.
Mr. Chanti who is also a regular panelist on the entertainment show hosted by Ogboro Naghty on Obaatanpa Radio 92.5 every Friday, stressed that the media played a major role in R2bees becoming a force to reckon with in music as far as Ghana is concerned so they should give some credit to the media.
He made this point last Friday when he was quizzed about his opinion on the issue being a media man.
He emphasized that, any artist or celebrity who goes for an interview has the right to decide whether to answer a question or not and a presenter will mostly ask intriguing questions that will make the news but this should not be a reason an artiste or group should place an interview ban on themselves.
The presenter cum events organizer continued that, R2bees’ comments have rather sparked negative headlines and that, they could have used the opportunity to promote their songs or project something better.
He therefore advised that they should reverse their decision in order not to receive cold reception from the media when they need them to promote their future works.
