Thegist24.com earlier reported that the Afrochella would not be celebrated in Ghana anymore after 5 years of celebration.
In our earlier publication, we did not give a reason behind the decision made by the organizers.
Well, we nosedived into the issue and sources have revealed that security is the reason why Afrochella would not be celebrated in Ghana anymore.
Unlike its opening day (on Thursday December 28th) which had all artists showing up on stage to entertain patrons, the ‘Day 2’ of the event was stopped by the organizers due to what they explained as ‘safety issues’.
According to event host, Adesope Olajide aka Shopsydoo, organizers after identifying several security lapses were left with no option but to take such an unpopular decision to safeguard the lives of its patrons.
Shopsydoo said the organizers realized that the crowd at the main entrance had become too huge to control, a situation which gave way for some miscreants to openly disregard the event procedures.
He said, the concert had to be brought to an end to avoid a possible disaster.
He added that Afro Nation prioritizes human life above all other things and informed the motive behind it taking the decision based on safety concerns.

The announcement was made as patrons waited for Afropop superstars Rema and Asake to perform after French-Congolese singer Dadju’s performance.
Prior to that were performances by Black Sherif, Camidoh and Stonebwoy, which were all incident-free.
