After all the bash on Sarkodie’s performance at the Rapperholic and the conditions at the auditorium, Africa’s finest rapper has finally admitted that his annual concert needs a better venue.
Fans and patrons of the Rapperholic concert did not have an excellent experience this year as the unfortunate incidence that happened last year repeated itself. There massive complains on social media especially twitter where people mentioned that they had outside the auditorium for far too long. After the gates were opened, there was a rush into the room which caused a lot of problems. Fans with VIP and VVIP tickets had no where to sit as the place was already full. Others also had to bring in their own chairs from outside and struggle to get a space.
There are others who complained about Sarkodie’s performance as they felt it was way below his standard. However in a video posted on YouTube earlier this morning, the boss of Sarkcess Music apologized to the fans and acknowledged that the show has outgrown the Accra International Conference Centre but they have limited options which make them always go back to the same. He further stated that it would be difficult for his team to stage it outdoors as they may not get the effect they want.
Rapperholic always gets packed and I do agree the brand has outgrown the Conference Centre, but our options are limited in Ghana. As much as we wanna have the fans have this experience, the quality of the stage, the look and feel we want is very hard to achieve outdoor and therefore always makes us go to the same venue.
He hence stated that it is about time they move it out of the conference centre to avoid all these mishaps.
But I think its about time we just move it so the space can take more, so it doesn’t feel overcrowded. I loved every bit of the show.
This year’s concert was the 7th edition after making this an annual event. A lot of acts came through to support the King which included King Promise, Amakye Dede, Five5, T Blaze, Kwesi Arthur and many others.
