Promoter Goes Viral After Exposing Artists That Use Ghost Producers
Melbourne promoter Danny Grant posted a status to his Facebook 15 or so hours ago that has since gone viral. The promoter that works with Empire Club, Loud Entertainment and other brands promised to reveal a local or international produce/DJ that uses ghost producers for every 200 likes the status receives.
The post now has over 1.5k likes and over 490 comments. Grant has since posted a comment saying he has been "advised to keep his mouth shut" after an Australian agency apparently threatened to take legal action.
Before he was reportedly threatened, Grant "outed" DVVBS, Timmy Trumpet, Steve Aoki, Hannah Wants, Milli Vanilli, The Stafford Brothers, Tiësto and more as artists who allegedly rely on ghost producers. There are always rumors flying around about ghost-using artists, and Grant's claims come with no evidence or validity that separates them from rumors and speculations online.
The comments section has naturally blown up as online users respond, troll and/or throw in their own accusations. It's probably the most entertaining part of the whole thing, although we are definitely curious as to what threats were made and by what agency.
We've reached out to Grant for an official statement on whether he has any evidence for these claims, asking him to also expound on any threats or backlash he has received. We will update this post if/when we receive a response.
