Moments after manager for Ghanaian dancehall artist Shatta Wale, Julio Cyriaano Olympio explained what led to Uptown Energy boss Yaa Pono’s inability to perform at the Cape Coast sports stadium over the weekend in a show on which he had been billed to perform, manager for Yaa Pono, Ashley Brobbey has described the reports as false.
In a sharp rebuttal on Facebook, Ashley Brobbey stated the Yaa Pono and his team were present in the stadium at the stipulated time.
Read as he posted, (Unedited)
“Mr Julio Cyriaano Olympio we came on time asked for our time of performance I sent Frank to the stadium at exactly 10 and godfather Panji went with him to check what’s going on.
Organizers told Frank they will call him to let us know the time we will perform they called us to be there at 1:30 we were there 1:20 when medikal was performing they allowed your artist to bring his car to the field but we were told to park our car outside and walk from the car park through the audience to the backstage ….
Commotion announced Yaa pono as next act, all we saw next is shatta wale says he wants to perform and you are saying I did not do my work well if you think it’s a lie ask panji.
We don’t need hype but it’s disrespectful to let people pay gate just to see our performance and block us from performing. After the show too nobody called to apologize meanwhile you had an after party and started insulting we the uptown energy crew”
