Organisers of the Cassper Nyovest, Naak MusiQ and Amaroto gig which was supposed to take place at Khumalo Hockey Stadium have issued a statement apologising for the cancellation of the event.
The gig was supposed to take place on Sunday 27 February.
Despite the artistes being on standby in the venue to rock the stage, police stopped the gig at 10.22 pm before the curfew (which is at 12 midnight).
3D Events have apologised to over 2500 patrons who paid to see the Mufasa on stage.
They are in talks with the artistes to make a possible return to the city on a date yet to be announced.
“3D Events Management would like to express its profound and sincere apology to its valued patrons on the shutdown of the Sunday Summer Big Boys Party on 27 February, 2022 at the Khumalo Hockey Stadium.
“The Shutdown was unforeseeable as we had done all the logistics to our level best to make sure that the show is a success. We are in talks with the artistes’ management to arrange for new dates for the show.
“With regards to ticket holders, we kindly request that they get in touch with 3D Events management.
“We apologise for the inconvenience caused and we look forward to our next show. We hope you will give us the same support as you always do,” wrote 3D Events in a statement.
Meanwhile, two local artistes, Fab G Mshanakagogo and Noreen Moria were given a platform to showcase their craft on stage before the gig was shut down and gave patrons value for a percentage of their money.
Moria backed by the Flaxxers dance crew, performed songs including Bongo, Lighter and Uolalah.
Fab G mesmerised the crowds with his hit song Nomvula, Salibonani and Thatha Mi.
