Ghanaian singer, Sista Afia has disclosed that her ‘‘Queen Solomon’’ concert in Tamale at the Aliu Mahama sports stadium flopped because there wasn’t any artist from the Northern Region billed to perform.

In an interview on 3music, Sista Afia revealed her performance was sabotaged from the beginning, explaining that the lights kept going on and off while she was on stage performing to the audience.

“The whole show was sabotaged because I didn’t have Fancy or one other artiste on the bill. So, they kept removing the plugs. When I stepped on stage, after 2 seconds, they took the plug, and all the lights went back off. They kept doing it even before I went on stage,” she revealed.

The “Asuoden” hitmaker explained that she was surprised at the turn out of events, as she went through all the necessary protocols before the day of the concert.

“We did everything possible. I mean, we did the prom, and we met the Chiefs. We did everything you are supposed to do when it comes to Tamale,” she disclosed.

Sista Afia revealed that she had contacted both Macassio and Fancy Gadam, the two most popular and influential musicians in the North to be on the show, however, they bailed on her in the last minute.

“We contacted Fancy. I contacted both of them (Macassio and Fancy Gadam). Then he (Fancy) gave me an amount that I have to pay, and we bargained. And the minute I was about to pay, he wasn’t answering my text,” she revealed.

The ‘‘Queen Solomon’’ concert featured artists like, Medikal, Kwame Yogot, Mr. Drew, Sefa, Lasmid, Ataaka, Wiz Child, Lilwin and others.
