In the past weekend all roads led towards KICC for the Barbeque Live, where music revelers thronged to see Nigerian superstar, Wizkid perform alongside a handful of slated Kenyan artists among them popular boy band, H_art the band.
Turns out behind the curtains the boy band was subjected to mistreatment by the event’s organizers. In a long post the band narrated the incident on their social media pages. They wrote;
“Last Saturday Night, these NinjAs were on top of the World ready to rock the stage at BBQ LiVE ( @bbqliveke ) Yaani ,we were so excited – it was going to be a good night or so we thought 😟 We didn’t know exactly what time we were performing – sounds unprofessional yes ?!? Truth is since the day before we had tried to inquire but no one was willing to tell – we were being taken round in circles *inserts merry-go-round pic* 🎡 No worries, no one was going to kill our good vibes 😃 At 7pm we get a call from an anonymous person that we are supposed to be on stage in 5min 😱 Ps: we are still at home so we request for some time because there’s nothing we can do – Kayole-leshwa hakuna Uber-chopper apparently 🙈it’s then that This person threatens to cancel our performance if we don’t get there ASAP 😱”
The long post continued; “We get there and from the main entrance the security officers start bad mouthing us_& talking trash ⚠OMG;!;! The Hater shades almost came off for a second ⏰ We readjusted them ,swallowed a huge lump of hate _& put our chins up – nothing else mattered now but the show ahead😣 Normally, such disrespect is followed by some Kayole-leshwa street madness but we had saved our energies for a better purpose🌻 The drama doesn’t stop here😶At the backstage entrance ,the person handling the artist decides to freeze our whole team 😱 Apparently, she doesn’t know why we need a Drummer for the performance aTi, the backstage is for artist’s only ⚠*Beep Beep* Bad Vibes Alert⚠We sense bad vibes _& so, we tell our team of camera-men, videographers _& management to chill outside💥it wasn’t worth all the fuss to try to get in.”
After pouring out their feelings the band thanked it’s fans for turning up in the event and for their support.
