In reports making rounds on social media specifically Twitter, Nigerian musician, Yemi Alade got locked up in her hotel room whilst Ghanaian Reggae/Dancehall artist Stonebwoy got kicked out of his hotel room over non-payment of bills after the Kenya Concert dubbed “Tomorrow’s Leaders” organised by Morgan Heritage flopped.
Kenyan celebrity blogger, Xtian Dela in series of tweets on Twitter alleged;
“Thread: Credible sources inform me that @morganheritage are planning to flee the country tomorrow after the flopped #TLF2019 gig. – Stonebwoy has been kicked out of his hotel. – Yemi Alade locked in her hotel because of bills. – No Kenyan Artist paid. #ArrestMorganHeritage”.
“The much publicized @morganheritage event that was meant to raise cash for “African Leaders” was a complete disaster from the start. Artists like @diamondplatnumz and @yemialadee refused to get on stage because of pay. #ArrestMorganHeritage”.
“The main host @KoinangeJeff also pulled out of the event hours before everything went south as he didn’t want to align his brand with an event that was Confused, Poorly organized and with No Pay. #ArrestMorganHeritage”.
“On the day of the event, all the artists refused to get on stage before payment, @morganheritage gave them cheques at the backstage. A few hours after the performance they got this mail, saying no money in the account. #ArrestMorganHeritage”.
The hashtag he is championing on Twitter is #ArrestMorganHeritage ─ all because they refused to pay musicians billed for the concert as well as everything concerning the “Tomorrow’s Leaders” concert held at the Karasani Stadium in Kenya.
“Fellow Kenyans, we should not allow @morganheritage to board that plane without sorting out our Artists. If we allow this, other people will come to Kenya, do the same thing and run away! We have a few hours before they run away for good! #ArrestMorganHeritage”.
Yemi Alade sharing her experience in Kenya lamented;
“This is by far my worst trip to Nairobi, but I won’t let this experience ruin the love I have for this beautiful place! No devil! Not today! I SAY NOT TODAY!!!!!
