Shatta Wale’s “Thanksgiving” Concert failed to live up to its billing with a lot of wrongs being recorded on the night due to poor planning and improper execution.
The concert was organized by the Shatta Movement Empire to appreciate God and SM fans for all the successes Shatta Wale has chalked within the year 2018. However, there were intermittent interruptions during performances due to sound breaks.
But the delay by organizers to resolve issues with the sound practically got the audience angry which led to some of them pelting water sachets, water bottles, stones and sand at the organizers and sound technicians on stage.
The poorly planned program left fans who trooped to Mantse Agbona – James Town disappointed as “Ayekoo” hitmaker Medikal was probably the most popular artiste on the night as the other artistes who performed were virtually unknown.
Shatta Wale’s very late performance (after 3am) was not spared either as fans had to endure a halt in their Kings performance for almost 30 minutes as the technical team were still trying to resolve issues.
And to add the icing on the cake, the main MC for the show, Afia Schwarzenneger got to the venue after 2am, to the disappointment of fans who also threw stones at her whilst she was on stage. This was more than 4 hours after the show had started.
