Sarkodie Speaks On Joy FM "Nite With The Stars" 'No Show'

With reference to recent development within the media and on other platforms following Sarkodie’s boycott of Joy FM’s Nite with the Stars organized Saturday 24 November 2012 at the Dome of the International Conference Center, I deem it right to set the facts straight.

Sarkodie arrived at the venue 2 hours earlier in high spirit and ready to thrill attendees and give fans one of his best showings in recent times. However, this became impossible after a confrontation between teams of Kwaw Kesse and VIP had gotten physical.

A group of armed individuals broke into the changing room of Sarkodie & R2bees threatening to get violent if we did not reveal the whereabouts of Kwaw Kesse. We noticed a movement of several armed groups into the main auditorium and backstage for reasons we are yet to know.

That became a huge concern for me and members of my team fearing what could happen when Sarkodie mounts the stage. Fearing the escalation of the situation as there wasn’t enough security personnel to bring the situation under control, we indicated to members of the Joy FM team our concern, resolving of the fracas and the safety of Sarkodie, R2bees and management members.

Unfortunately we had to leave the show premises as nothing was done about the security situation and fearing the safety of my artiste Sarkodie, R2bees and others. This was an act and a decision taken not as a calculated attempt to tear down the show, rather due to the security concern.

However, we are more than willing to resolve this issue with the organizers of the Night with the stars event and hope they will grant us their platform to clarify issues going forward.

Sarkodie sincerely apologizes to our all attendees on the night and cherished fans who might have been let down by this act. Be assured that you are still and will always remain his number one priority and he is committed to thrilling you at all times.

Thank you

Sammy Forson

Business Manager (Duncwills Entertainment)
