The Mayor of Tamale Metropolitan Assembly, Hon Musah Superior, has responded calls to ban “floats” that prelude launch of music albums or concerts by musicians within the metropolis.
This came after the NEAT Artiste of The Year, Maccasio launched his “Ninsala” album with a massive float on the 19th August, 2017.
Prior to every musical show, music fans normally start what they call, “float”, by riding motorbikes to cheer their artiste.
This has become one of few ways to successfully give a last-minute hype to the publicity of an event. The number of participants determines how great or poor a show will be patronized.
But, it appears the 69 fans stepped on many toes in doing their ” float ” to launch the “Ninsala” album, including chiefs and imams.
Some disgruntled citizens took to Facebook to register their annoyance. With some describing it as total nuisance.
Whiles others wondered if the authorities in the metropolis have lost their powers to ensure law and order.
The Metropolitan Chief Executive of Tamale Metropolitan Assembly (TaMA) has vowed this to put a stop to such nuisance.
He posted on his Facebook timeline ; “Three days of chaos and indiscipline on Tamale streets! We will put a STOP to this nonsense! Henceforth no more such criminal conducts on our streets. Mark it!.”
