JAMAICAN MUSICIAN BEENIE MAN IN TEARS AFTER HIS CONCERT IN UGANDA FLOPS.
The famous show for Jamaican dancehall star Anthony Moses Davis, popularly known as Beenie Man, ended in tears for him and his promoters who where faced with one of the greatest losses of all after the event flopped, with thousands of Ugandans avoiding it and choosing to go to other shows that were in the city on the same night of Friday, November 11, 2022.
Beenie Man’s show was organized by Top Boy Entertainment Records who are noted to have done very little to advertise and pulicize the show that happened at Lugogo in Kampala. It should be remembered that Beenie Man had arrived in the country for his show on Wednesday, November 09 and sounded upbeat for the show.
He had not only promised a great show but a number of artistes such as Oxlade from Nigeria and Uganda’s Azawi, Winnie Nwagi and Vinka had all been set to entertain the audience at Bennie Man’s show.
However, things did not turn out well as had planned after only a few hundreds of people showed up for the show instead of thousands before whom Beenie Man had hoped to deliver a great show. The greatest competition was recorded to have come from the appearance of the Nigerian gospel singer Ada Ehi at the Lugogo Hockey Grounds which was a huge success given by the number of revellers there and ofcourse many more others shunned the Beenie Man show at the Lugogo Cricket Oval.
Despite the disappointing numbers, Beenie Man put up a good show, trying to lift the morale of those who had paid their money to come to watch him perform. But Nigeria’s Oxlade was discouraged by the numbers and refused to go on stage to sing.
