Ghanaian reggae and dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale, has announced the cancellation of his much-anticipated concert in Wolverhampton, England which was scheduled for Saturday, November 4, 2023.
The decision comes after promoters failed to meet the financial demands set by the celebrated artiste.
A statement released by Shatta Wale’s management on Tuesday, October 31 offered sincere apologies to fans who were eagerly looking forward to the concert.
According to the statement, Bizzle Entertainment, who were the promoters of the show, couldn’t meet the demands of their artiste, thereby forcing the cancellation of the concert.
“Over the past two weeks, we have been diligently working to bring Shatta Wale’s electrifying performance to the people of Wolverhampton.
“We believed that this concert would not only celebrate the incredible talent of Shatta Wale but also offer an unforgettable experience for his dedicated fans.
“However, we regret to inform the public that despite our best efforts, the promoters have not been able to meet the luxurious demands and requirements specified by Shatta Wale’s management,” the statement said.
It added that the promoters of the show couldn’t afford the logistical and financial demands of Shatta Wale, making it difficult to proceed with the concert.
“Our primary concern is always to provide an outstanding experience for concertgoers, and we believe it would be unfair to compromise the quality of the show by attempting to cut corners or reduce our preparation value.
“We would like to extend our sincere apologies to all fans who have been eagerly looking forward to this event. We understand the disappointment this cancellation may cause, and we share in that disappointment,” the statement said.
Shatta Wale’s management also assured refunds for all ticket holders.
