“This by far is my worst trip to Nairobi. But I won’t let this one experience ruin the love I have for this beautiful place! “No devil! Not today! I say not today!” Yemi Alade wrote.
The Nigerian songbird was among the artistes who had been lined up for the show, but never to took to the stage.
The event, which was organised by Jamaican Grammy Award winning reggae family, Morgan Heritage, was characterised by a delayed start, no show by a number of artistes and limited allotment of time on stage.
Jamaican singer Alaine also expressed her disappointment with the concert’s poor organisation after her performance was cut short.
The organisers informed the fans during the show that the night’s expected big acts, Yemi Alade and Tanzanian crooner Diamond Platnumz failed to perform because they had been “affected by the Nairobi weather”.
Nairobi News however understands that the two artistes stayed in a van at the venue of the event until 5 am when they left.
From the onset, the event was dogged with numerous logistics with two press conferences and a pre-party show cancelled.
Apart from Diamond, Yemi Alade and Alaine among the other top acts who had been linedup for the show were J Boog, Stonebowy, Jemere Morgan and Jose Chameleone.
