However,  what would have otherwise been a very great show took a turn for worse as it was sadly marred by violence and unscrupulous elements. Headliner Davido had to constantly beg for people to move away from the stage to stop it from collapsing, despite security on stage, young boys still jumped on the stage, he cut his performance short several times before finally leaving with his team.

Twitter user Cohannnn captured this moment.

 

There were also reports of rape, here is how one of the attendees narrated the experience he witnessed first hand.

 

See some tweets from concert goers who witnessed gunshots, stealing and violence.

 

 

 

The reason for the mayhem was attributed to the cheap prices of tickets which retails at 2k for early bird and 5k at the door and also the saved superstar effect.

 

Hopefully, next year’s event will be better and organisers will certainly learn from this. The show was well put together but it is sad that these things happened and security was not able to control it.  Nevertheless, it looks like despite the setback,  PH didn’t scare off celebrities. Reeked banks still has mad love for PH.
