The Co-founder of Afrochella, Ken Agyapong Jnr, has disclosed that the Ghanaian company contracted to print tickets for the 2022 Afrochella concert secretly printed fake ones.
He explained that despite their blue, purple and yellow original tickets, there were other orange tickets in the public which he said were fake.
Although he refused to reveal the name of the Ghanaian who was contracted to print the tickets, he expressed certainty that the company was responsible for the fake tickets for last year’s concert.
Speaking on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM, Tuesday, he said some people purchased tickets, but they could not be admitted to the concert because the tickets were not genuine.
“Our tickets were in three different kinds, blue, purple and yellow but all of a sudden there was an orange one.

“So people were complaining online that they didn’t get in They didn’t get in because their tickets were fake.”
“And it’s so sad to say this but the reason why there was a fake ticket was that we used a Ghanaian to print it and he also did some,” he added.
The Co-founder also explained that he knows the fake tickets were printed by their Ghanaian contractor because they have never had any incidence of fake tickets as they have been printing from outside Ghana.
“…..because usually, we print the tickets outside, but we said let’s do a hundred percent Ghanaian, and because we gave the job to a Ghanaian, he printed his own ticket to sell,” he said.
Meanwhile, he stated that last year’s Afrochella will not be the last as his Co-founder Abdul Abdullah said on the last day of the programme at the El-Wak stadium in Accra.
He explained that the event will return as ‘AfroFuture’ in 2023.
Last year’s Afrochella took place at El Wak Stadium in Accra on December 28 and 29. The two-day music festival featured Kidi, Medikal, Ayra Starr, DJ Juls, and DJ Loft.
