The Total Cheat crooner stated that at his first concert in the Upper West Region, Wa, only 17 partygoers were present. He added that he was heartbroken when he saw the crowd and noticed just a few faces.

Undeterred by the low turnout, the Zahanli crooner said that he delivered a memorable performance that showcased his potential, hoping that those who attended would spread the word to others.

"My first show in the Upper West was a flop show because I was thinking I'm very big in the North. I'm very big in Tamale, so I can venture to these places. Not knowing when you are big in some place, doesn't mean you are big everywhere," he said.
