The genuine cause of the confusion with his AfroNation performance has been disclosed by award-winning reggae/dancehall artist Stonebwoy.
According to sources, there was an issue with the hit song “Therapy” singer’s performance at the largest Afrobeats festival in the world, which was scheduled to take place in the United States.
In addition to claiming that there was a “silent war by the Nigerian gatekeepers targeted at preventing their Ghanaian counterparts from reaching global success,” Stonebwoy’s manager had already made accusations regarding the performance.
However, Stonebwoy has come forward to explain what transpired and the reason he was unable to entertain his fans at the festival.
There was a “unexpected” timing change, according to Stonebwoy.
“Dear Beloved Fans, Unfortunately, there was an unexpected change in our set time at Afronation. The new set time posed challenges that impacted my ability to give you the performance you deserve and performing at my best is of utmost importance to me,” he stated.
He however, extended his gratitude to fans who showed up for him and promised to make it up to them.
“I want to extend my deepest gratitude to those of you who made the effort to come and support me. Your dedication and love means the world to me. To make it up to you, I am committed to finding a way to connect with you and deliver the performance you were looking forward to. Thank you for your understanding, your loyalty, and your continued love. The next stop on the North American Tour is Canada – my headline show in Toronto is this Friday! See you. With love and appreciation, Stonebwoy.”
