Castro 419 Event Organizers In America


The Ghanaian community in the United States of America (Bronx) is noted for celebrating “Ghana’s Parade” every July which in actual terms is a day set to celebrate and showcase Ghana’s culture with some top musicians. For this year’s celebration, information reaching Flex Newspaper is that Castro, one of Ghana’s Top Musician has been booked as the main headline artiste to grace the after party aspect of the occasion.

Unfortunately, he has decided to play hide and seek with the organizers of the program, after getting the required money from them. In Our quest to investigate the issue, we tried talking to one of the organizers of the event who doubles as the C.E.O of (S and S) Sarfo and Sarfo Entertainment in the United States of America Isaac Tweneboah, Younger brother of Ghanaian Top Movie director and producer Socrates Sarfo. He revealed to Flex Newspaper That they have now decided to cancel the show because the agreement that was presented to them (Dred African Movies) who are the main organizers of the program is different from what they have on their table.

He added that organizers of the program Dred African Movies & Entertainment booked Castro early this year and decided to make arrangement for his Visa acquisition, airline and hotel reservation but after some few months they have been informed and have seen some soft copy posters of Castro on the internet advertizing Castro is scheduled to perform on the same day in New York.

When queried about the agreement and its nature, Isaac Tweneboah stated they didn’t book Castro to perform after the Ghana Parade and to also perform for another organization at the same time. So until Castro and the other Organization ”Boogie Down Nima” Cancel their show, they will not proceed with him.

Talking to DJ Amess who is the manager of Castro, he responded that he is shocked at Dred Africa Movies and Entertainment for coming out on the issue because as far as he is concerned, Castro’s Management has not taken any money from any event organizer in U.S.A ‘we were in a verbal negotiation with both parties whiles Boogie down Nima Managed to secure the Visa for us‘he added.

He continued that they didn’t want to take chances in the Visa issue because with their experience in the Industry, there are some event organizers who will come and brag that they will be able to get you the Visa and at the end of the day, they will end up letting the embassy bounce you, so they were very careful on that aspect.

‘Even after we landed the Visa we even went ahead to inform Dred African Movies and entertainment that with the Visa, we have managed to get it through our own means, so they should take that out of the deal, so I don’t know why they are saying they paid us and in the process of getting us the Visa, we have betrayed them. Or is it a crime to get your own Visa to America ‘he asked.

All efforts to get representatives of Boogie down Nima to hear their side of the story proved futile as their contacts failed to connect.
