HARARE – Nigerian star Tekno’s maiden concert in Zimbabwe which was scheduled for Alexandra Sports Club in Harare tonight has been cancelled yet again.
In a statement last night, Triplife Entertainment, the organisers of the gig, confirmed the cancellation of the highly-anticipated show.
“Please note that Tekno and his team were looking forward to this highly anticipated gig and are equally disappointed by this undesirable outcome. His management and other stakeholders are still looking forward to making the trip to Harare though it is impossible at this time. Any inconvenience is sincerely regretted,” read part of the statement.
This is the second time this week that the gig has been called off. Early this week a spokesperson for Triplife Entertainment, the organisers of the gig, cancelled the gig citing an electrical mishap.
But a few days later they reinstated the concert after “We heeded the concerns of the fans who implored us to fix the concerns.”
