The climax of the 2023 SRC week celebration was the talk of Koforidua and its environs as Shatta Wale was expected to be the headliner of the program.
The program was scheduled to occur on the 29th of July, 2023 and this pulled a massive crowd from sundry locations from far and near. Some students had to pick Shatta Wale over the 6:00 Am class on Monday. The drip to the occasion was very necessary and loyal fans of Shatta Wale didn’t disappoint. Some artists who were placed on the bill showed up and kept the atmosphere energized.
The night was already prepared for a good memory until other artists who were put on the bill failed to show up at 3:00 Am.
Disappointment arose when Shatta Wale failed to make an appearance at the highly anticipated performance, leaving students and fans in a state of shock at 3:20 Am on Monday. The artist’s absence has triggered a wave of controversy, with emotions running high and various speculations circulating.
Uniland is yet to give an official explanation to the community as well as the Students Representative Council on what led to that unfortunate experience.
I had an encounter with the Head of media, and this is what he had to say —
“It is the fault of Uniland I give you any feedback when we are done with the issue.
The problem here is, SRC has no problem with SHATTA.
Uniland was an intermediate between SRC and SHATTA buh due to greed on the side of Uniland that caused SHATTA not to come”.
He also added that students should know how to spread information in a proper way. They haven’t addressed the student populace due to the deliberations they are having with Uniland and they will do that at the right time.
This is what the vice presid
ent of K.T.U also had to say – “UnilandFest failed KTU SRC even though KTU SRC fulfilled their part of the contract. We were not dealing with the artist directly, we did so through UniLand”.
To conclude, I hope we are going to get what we wanted but to tell you when, – a question we can leave to the gods. But I hope the SRC could have done better by alerting the crowd earlier because people had to abandon their night of sleep and plan to abrogate morning classes for an unfortunate waste of time.
kindly leave a comment and share for further deliberations
