The release established that the organisers didn't disclose their plans entirely to the authorities.

Shatta Wale, unsatisfied with the Dean of Students' reasons, went on a ranting spree online, chiding Stonebwoy and accusing him of sabotaging his show.

"Stonebwoy told the school's authorities that he would not perform if my show wasn't cancelled," Shatta Wale established.

A similar situation happened last year when Shatta Wale had to cancel his stadium show to allow Stonebwoy's critically acclaimed Bhim Concert to run.

In a new statement released on Monday, June 10, the organisers, Wave Africa, clarified the issues surrounding the show's cancellation.

The organisers' statement didn't indicate Stonebwoy's role in the show's cancellation. However, they stated that the institution's security forces interrupted their sound and setup, saying they had an order from above.
