For instance, in a review of Rhytms of Africa by veteran music producer/sound engineer, Fred Kyei Mensah popularly known as Fredyma, he applauded Sonnie Badu and his team for the well organised event.
However, just like many, he questioned Sonnie Badu’s quick healing when he wrote, “What happened to the crutches is another debate for, Jesus can heal a wounded spirit whole in a week. Boi!”
And for critics, his brand is too big and doesn’t need such pranks to get people to attend an event he is headlining.
However, in Facebook post, Zhikay Ike Junior, a member of the organising team defended Sonnie Badu that his accident is real and not fake.
He revealed thathe saw Sonnie at the backstage in pains after the concert since the effect of the injection to his foot to make it numb had started waning off.
