Dancehall artiste Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jnr known in showbiz as Shatta Wale’s performance at last night’s Legon Hall Week Artiste’s Night was cut short after just 15 minutes.
Many fans who had travelled from accross the city just to witness the highly publicized Artiste’s Night of Legon Hall week that was organized in partnership with What’s Up TV were left dissappointed after the ‘Dancehall King’s’ performance was cut short after just over 15 minutes after climbing the stage. The show per the rules in the University of Ghana was supposed to end at 11pm but some circumstances led to the abrupt end.
The stage lights went off some minutes into the performance which got the dancehall act outraged as he demanded the lights were put back on before he continued the performance. However, after many calls, the situation was still the same and the Shatta had to continue with the performance with the help of flashlights.
Some moments after this, the sound system went off and Shatta Wale was off the stage leaving patrons and fans disappointed. http://www.kwesilive.com interacted with the Junior Common Room Vice President of the Premier Hall, Joshua Worship Frimpong to get more clarification into the issue and he stated it was as a result of an individual cutting off the main power supply to the event grounds.
As he(Shatta Wale) was performing on stage, a guy in front of me pulled out a cable and the lights on stage went off. So I went to call the technical guys to come fix it. But initially Shatta didn’t know that the lights had gone off because he thought they had put them off for the flashlights to have an effect on the beauty of the performance. So he later realized after some minutes that the lights were not coming so he demanded they were put back on.
And then some of the guys in front of the stage were climbing onto it so one of the militants pushed him down and he fell over. So the guys in front got bored and started throwing sand on the stage before we later found out that someone had gone to cut the wire at the latter part. So the power source went off and Shatta had to leave.
