According to the Dean of Student Affairs, TF Hall did not receive approval from the school authorities to host Shatta Wale's Reunion Rave event. They sought permission to host a karaoke night, not an artiste night, for which the school authorities were unprepared.

She said:

"It is not true that TF got approval for the artiste night event. Normally, if any event is going to be organised in any hall, a request for approval is sent to my office with an outline of the programme. What they said they were going to do was a karaoke night, not an artiste night. As far as I am concerned, there is a difference between the two. When you are having an artiste night, it comes with a lot of implications: security and other things. So we need to ensure that there is enough security and that's why you need approval. There is still a ban on student gatherings so you cannot get up and bring an artiste like Shatta Wale without the adequate and necessary arrangements."

Professor Rosina also revealed that the PRO VC approved the Limann Hall event, where Stonebwoy performed. She had no idea Stonebwoy would perform at the event until she saw flyers on the school premises.

She said:

"Limann sent a letter requesting approval for their programs, including artiste night and I forwarded it to the PRO VC because of the ban on public gatherings and the final approval comes from him. I did not even know who was on the bill to perform until I saw their flyers. So I called the hall's president and his executives to assure me of the security. Their letter had to go to the Legon Police District Command and university security, and I asked them to get extra security."

"It was clear from the beginning that Shatta Wale was telling lies just to get people to be angry at Stonebwoy and for the students not to attend his show. Now the truth is out."

@Black_Zeusss commented:

"When I said this Shatta fans kept insulting me . Tf executives didn’t send the correct outline to the dean. Karaoke night is different from artist night. Blame the hall executives and leave stone out of this. Shatta trying to tarnish Stone’s name so bad. "
