GOSPEL SHOW MOVED AFTER UITENHAGE MUSIC SCAM

BY Sipho Ngwema

 

 

The Gospel Music Festival of the Nelson Mandela Bay Cultural Festival scheduled to take place at the Jabavu Stadium in Uitenhage this Saturday has been postponed to September 05.

 

The announcement follows media reports of a music scam that left scorers of concert-goers, local community leaders and entertainers furious after a local organiser duped people into buying tickets for a bogus concert supposedly scheduled to take place at the same venue last week Saturday.

 

The fiasco has had devastating effect on this weekend's gospel concert as ticket sales dropped dramatically immediately after the news of the scam emerged. Security reports indicate that there may be community action planned as the result of the scam.

 

The Nelson Mandela Bay Cultural Festival decided to take precautionary step and move the show to September to allow emotions to subside and the situation to return to normal. The plunge in public confidence towards concerts as a direct result of the scam is hopefully temporary and show will return in September.

 

Fortunately, the artists that were meant to perform this coming Saturday have overwhelmingly agreed to come back in September and assist in efforts to restore credibility of the entertainment industry.
