Saturday, 11th August 2012 - When Shaggy came to the country, word on the street had it that his phone had been stolen on Kenyan soil. The same rumors resurfaced yesterday, the culprit this time round being reggae artist Tarrus Riley.
However the event’s organizers halted the rumors. They claimed that this was a tactic by haters to make the show fail. Kriss Darlin one of the hosts of the show said that this were malicious people who are out to ensure the show hits a slug. He confirmed that Riley’s I phone was still intact.
Female artist Etana who is also in the country had a rough time and at one time threatened that she wouldn’t perform. She wrote a tweet in Jamaican slang, “So my representative had hell dealing with this Kenya promoter and I may not be able to perform. Though I’m here. Crazy.Wah dis mi come buck up pan inna Kenya. Ever feel like your hands tied? Women always fight extra hard.”
Her fans pleaded with her to change her mind as she had come all the way.
She later on wrote, “I won’t disappoint my fans though, come too far and been ready too long! Kenya weh yuh say!”The Kenyan DAILY POST
