Tanzania’s Diamond and Nigeria’s Yemi Alade failed to appear at the Morgan Heritage Tomorrow’s Leaders Concert held at the Kasarani Stadium on Saturday.
Kenyans have been demanding answers after the two top artists failed to show up without any explanation.
Diamond, who had not updated anything about the show on his Instagram – after arriving in Nairobi on Friday – confirmed that he would not perform as he was “unwell” while Yemi pulled out because of unclear reasons.
According to Morgan Heritage, the two artists missed the show because of the weather which had a toll on them.
“Yes, the weather here is so funny and diamond has been on a very busy tour, his voice went out and Yemi got sick.” they said.
That is however hard to believe because Diamond was allover Kenyan clubs partying with his bae Tanasha that night. The show was also marred with organisational conflicts and was doomed to be a flop from the word go.
About 3,800 people, among them Permanent Secretaries, MPs and UN officials had each paid up to Sh12,000 for the VVIP ticket but couldn’t enjoy the event since the VVIP section wasn’t even set up and it was raining.
