Intentional or not, the ‘Usisa’ artist just landed himself in some hot water! Because in a now-viral tweet, Bullet Dumas just asked his fans to stop recording live performances. And, well, a lot of people disagree!

But before we get into it, here’s a little background on Bullet Dumas. Bullet Dumas is an independent OPM artist. He is known for his songs such as ‘Usisa’, ‘Put To Waste’, and ‘Tugtog’. Here’s a fun fact, not only is he a songwriter, singer, and musician but he is also a math teacher.

So what exactly did he say? He apparently has an issue with people who record live performances. Check out his tweet below:

Yep, that’s what he said. And not everyone agrees…


Like any opinion, not everyone will agree. But in this case, there are a lot more people who disagree compared to those who do agree. Here are some replies from his original tweet:

This Twitter user makes a valid point because not everyone can attend gigs. Maybe it’s because of geographical or financial reasons. But having access to videos from live performances available on social media can help the artist find new fans from anywhere in the world.

And a lot of people were also just quick to dismiss his statements and just sum it up to “boomer mentality.” We think it’s because of his quip about simply enjoying the live performance without filming. Its a common sentiment shared between people from the Baby Boomer generation.

There were also responses from fellow musicians that explained a positive way of looking at it. They explained that it’s different when you’re a small unknown artist or band. And instead of feeling offended, they love that people share recordings of their live performances. Because they get to see people appreciating their performance, even though they weren’t actually there.

What do you think of Bullet Dumas’ qualm about recording live performances? Do you think that doing so is disrespectful to the artist? We’d love to hear what you think! So share with us your thoughts in the comments down below! Or hit us up on our Facebook or Twitter @UDoUPh.
