Why can’t creative industry people gather in large numbers like politicians do? – Bulldog asks

Artist manager Hanson Nana Agyemang, Bulldog, has wondered why despite COVID-19 restrictions, politicians can gather in large numbers for political purposes whereas players in the creative arts industry are barred from doing the same to earn a living.

Bulldog has accused the politicians of gathering to further their selfish interests while the creative arts industry continues to suffer because of the restrictions imposed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Politicians gather in large numbers for their selfish reasons — but the creative industry cannot gather to earn a livings? They borrow to pay themselves for no work done — while citizens are squeezed for their last cedi via high tariffs. I guess politicians are special living things,” he said.

Bulldog then chided his colleagues in the industry for failing to act to in their own interest by refusing to demonstrate against the “transgressions” the industry is suffering from.

“When you call for a demonstration for the transgressions being meted out to the creative industry too — my people will not show up because 99% of us our scaredy-cats,” he lashed out.

The Government has banned all entertainment activities that involve the gathering of large numbers of people as part of activities to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus.

This directive has been largely adhered to by the creative arts industry.
