The Importance of Celebrity Security. (The Importance of Celebrity and Concert Security)
Danra: Security is essential no matter where you are or who you are. Even at home, simple security is required because you never know when the adversary will attack.
Security protects artists from harassing fans who are sexually harassing them, as well as fans who are hostile against them.
Beenie Gunter: It (security) is quite crucial. Because not everyone is satisfied with what you’re doing, every artist and star requires security. Even Jesus was put to death. The highest priority is security.
Security is meant to be provided to pastors and other important people in society. People will lose control at any time, and you must be prepared for this.
Dax Vibez: It’s critical for everyone, not just celebrities. Every Ugandan must feel safe. Celebrities, on the other hand, are usually public figures.
Some people may despise the artist, while others may be enamored with him or her to the point of obsession. As a result, the threat to the artist is greater than the hazard to a normal person.
What about artists who are well-known in the public and are shifting targets, if ministers who are unpopular have patrols following them?
Crysto Panda: You don’t need security all of the time, but when you’re going to a show, sure. Yes, I’ll get security if I’m going to a show.
If you’re going to a large performance, you should have people surrounding you to defend you since you never know who will like you. That is why I do not frequent bars.
What kind of protection does a celebrity or artist require?
Dax Vibez: I’m a boxer, but I also travel with security while attending performances because it’s vital.
We perform for drunkards and folks who are ecstatic. You may arrive late at the site, and the partygoers are already enraged, necessitating the extra man.
When people see Spice Diana moving around with all those bodyguards, even if it’s only for a day, they know she’s not easy to get to. It creates the impression that she is safe.
Danra: Unless you want to flaunt about it, I don’t think you need six bodyguards. Two bodyguards should suffice to keep you safe.
Beenie Gunter: You should be protected in every way possible. Whether it’s a bouncer or a man with a pistol, you’ll be safe.
Then there’s your own personal security to consider. At all times, you should have a plan in place to safeguard yourself if something goes wrong. It’s all about living.
If I’m going to perform somewhere and don’t need to go all out, I’ll practice on that because I know what kind of environment I’ll be in. I don’t have to go through all of that because it might draw attention to myself. Some things work in some situations and others don’t; you need to recognize where your style fits in.
Get one, get two, says Crysto Panda (bouncers). Get a maximum of two. What do you need four for if you don’t need four? You don’t need armed bouncers. Two is sufficient. People will not hate you if you are a good person. However, if you’re also a jerk, you’ll need at least five.
What should be done to make concert security more secure?
Danra: I recommend that you hire stage protection. The stage should be guarded by someone. When an artist decides to leave the stage and enter the audience, bodyguards should be present to safeguard her or him. Fans should not be able to easily contact the artists.
People love to mock Bebe Cool, but the organization he has at his Tondeka Ekiwatule gigs, the space between the stage and the audience, is exactly what I want at Ugandan events. Other event organizers should follow suit.
Crysto Panda: Artists must decrease the number of persons with whom they travel. I’m Crysto Panda, and I don’t need to go in a group of ten. For what purpose? You’ll need two or three people to move; your manager, deejay, and possibly the bouncer.
Bouncers who will protect the artists should be stationed at the venue by the event organizers. Who is responsible if an artist has an issue during an event? It’s the person in charge of the event. (The Importance of Celebrity and Concert Security – celebrity jazz ug)
