The team of multiple award-winning Ghanaian musician, Stonebwoy, has reacted in anger to what they describe as a shocking incident that unfolded at the Tidal Rave Festival in Accra on Saturday, November 4, 2023, which left fans and artists alike in disbelief.
In a write seen on the Facebook of Gerrrald Israel, a member of Stonebwoy’s team, the Burniton Music boss who happens to be one of Ghana’s most prominent music exports, fell victim to a startling act of disrespect during his performance, and he indicated that this action raises concerns about the lack of courtesy and adherence to schedules in the entertainment world.
According to Gerrald, the saga began when Stonebwoy and his team arrived at the La Palm Royal Beach Hotel at 10:12 PM, which was about two hours before his scheduled performance from 12:15 AM to 1:00 AM.
However, the festival producers informed them of an altered running order, resulting in an additional hour’s delay, making it a frustrating four-hour wait for the artist.
He added that despite the unexpected delay, Stonebwoy patiently waited, while other artists, including KiDi, Efya, La Meme, and Joey B, occupied the time originally allotted for his performance.
Gerrald further mentioned that Stonebwoy finally took the stage at 1:27 AM intending to deliver a performance lasting around 45 to 50 minutes. However, within a mere 30 minutes into his set, chaos ensued when Sarkodie’s crew, led by DJ Mensah, abruptly halted Stonebwoy’s performance by instructing his DJ to stop playing.
He stressed that this disrespectful interference not only disrupted the artist’s flow but also left the audience bewildered.
In his closing remarks, Gerrald expressed his outrage, highlighting the blatant disrespect and inappropriate behavior exhibited by Sarkodie‘s team and stating that it is not only unacceptable but also tarnishes the reputation of the entire music industry.
