This Is Why Stonebwoy, Yemi Alade And Others Haven’t Been Paid After Kenya Concert
Earlier today, Buzzslate.com revealed how a Kenyan blogger alleged that the much hyped, ‘Tomorrow’s Leaders Festival’ concert flopped big time with series of drama being recorded afterwards.
Morgan Heritage’s team was supposed to cover all expenses of Yemi Alade, Stonebwoy and the other artists who came to support the concert but that did not happen as the Bhim Nation president Stonebwoy was allegedly kicked from his hotel room whilst Yemi Alade was locked up.
Dela also revealed Kenyans are so angry with how things turned out so much that they have started a new campaign on social media dubbed, #ArrestMorganHeritage.
In a new development to the story, a team member of the “Tomorrow’s Leaders” concert, Nerea Musita in a leaked note sent to Mojo Morgan confirmed that indeed, none of the musicians who performed at the concert has been paid due to low turnout resulting in financial losses.
Nerea Musita wrote;
Thank you once again for your support in ensuring we held the event which was a blessing to have pulled off even with hurdles and obstacles on the journey.
Following reconciliation of the accounts after the events, financially we made a loss at the box office, in lieu of that some payments will not be possible at this time. Kindly do not bank the cheque received from Ronami Holdings, for there is not a sufficient amount in order to clear your amount at this time.
We will be intouch as we continue to do a postmortem, and plan for the next event.
Your understanding is much appreciated on the same”.
This perhaps confirms our earlier reports that Yemi Alade and Stonebwoy were not given the best of treatment. The ‘Tomorrow’s Leaders Festival’ is a global initiative to raise funds and awareness for youth leadership programs across Africa and Jamaica, with benefactors including ‘Save The Children’, UNICEF, UNESCO, UNODC and other NGOs.
