There was a stampede & People were literally fainting up and down. people started leaving because of their safety.
The organizers did a very dirty job.
Afrobeats superstar Asake has tendered his apologies to fans in Birmingham, United Kingdom after he turned up late for his concert. On Saturday, December 3, sensational artist Asake was billed to perform at a show at The Forum, Birmingham, in a sold-out show that was part of his Mr. Money With The Vibes UK tour. The red-hot artist arrived hours late, as he didn’t show up at the event until 11 p.m. Consequently, he was met with boos from a section of the fans who were unhappy about the way the organizers went about the show.
One Twitter user who attended the show stated that the crowd management was poor and caused a stampede. Some fans were also dissatisfied with Asake’s performance, which users on Twitter jokingly likened to a church praise and worship session. After the disgruntled posts surfaced online, Asake appeared to take a defiant position, first posting a picture of himself flashing a big smile while displaying 100 dollar bills. He then followed up this post with a screenshot of Ebenezer Obey’s famous song “The Horse, The Man, and The Son,” which is a song that basically talks about how one can never please the world.
Birmingham I’m sorry for the delay yesterday. The promoters delayed my pick up time for reasons best known to them, But I’m super grateful for your patience and understanding.— ASAKE (@asakemusik) December 4, 2022
However, he backtracked his initial stance as he tweeted an apology to Birmingham fans for coming late. “Birmingham I’m sorry for the delay yesterday. The promoters delayed my pick-up time for reasons best known to them, But I’m super grateful for your patience and understanding,” the tweet reads.

Lady Du is venturing into the beauty business. She took to her Instagram timeline to announce this, stating that it has always been her dream. “I don’t think you guys know all the things I studied, beauty being one of them. After school I studied beauty, travelled the world working on a cruise ship [and] my biggest dream was to own a salon. Music captured me, I focused on it, but now that I can do both, I took my savings, bought a house in the hood so I don’t have to pay rent. I wanted to bring the Sandton experience back to the hood.”
She also revealed that she was qualified for the beauty business. “I literally have been working sooo hard on it, still am. If you are from KwaThema or around kindly send your CV to [email protected] I am fully qualified in this as you can see my diplomas in all departments, some diplomas are for something else! But all qualifications are there. Here’s to franchising in the hood, empowering the community [and] taking the money back to ekasi. My legacy starts now.”
