Earlier reports indicated that due to a huge balance of close to 40m, the show could not take place at the advertised venue unless when that balance had been cleared upfront, forcing the organizers to shift to the neighbouring Kati Kati grounds.
As if that was not enough, Elephant Man did not even turn up at the new venue making the show a total flop. Local artistes like KS Alpha, Coco Finger and Vampino among others instead used the opportunity to launch their new songs.
Elephant Man jetted into the country on Wednesday and a number of local artistes were around him at least for an opportunity to hit the studios to record collabos but it's not clear if any of them were successful.
Peter Miles chauffeured the star from the airport. According to insider sources, Elephant Man failed to turn up after promoters failed to meet certain conditions of the contract. In some instances they say, he was even paying his hotel bills.
By Saturday morning at about 12:30am, there was no sign of the Jamaican star anywhere close to Kati Kati. Meanwhile, analysts estimated the number of people who attended to less than 200 and yet artistes like Eddie Kenzo, Aziz Azion and Jamal have had the venue fill to capacity. This is still a developing story so we will certainly bring you more on the matter.
