The much awaited Nigerian and Pana hit maker, Tekno’s show slated for November 24 at the Alexandra sports club, Harare has been postponed.
In a press release by show organisers- TripLife Entertainment, the show has been moved to next year in February as a Valentines treat.
Below reads the full statement
Fellow Zimbabweans; due to unforeseen circumstances, we have been forced, by mutual consent with the artiste Tekno and other artistes on the bill, to move the show initially slated for Alexandra Sports Club on Friday November 24, 2017, to another date.
While we had been adequately covered for the weather factor, other electrical logistics to ensure the smooth running of the event without projected rain being an impediment have arisen. We have absolutely no control over these factors. As they can affect the technical aspect of the show and safety of the fans, the artiste has agreed to move the event to a later date when an indoors venue has been secured to ensure a smooth, unhindered and safe event.
In that spirit, the show shall adopt a Valentine’s theme and will therefore be held on February 16 of 2018 at the Harare International Conference Centre. This is the earliest convenience that the main artiste Tekno, can be available for a deferral.
We shall continue to liaise with the local artistes previously on the billing to ensure their schedule has them free to perform on the said date. In the meantime, in line with our ever growing desire to see world class entertainment brought to our shores, we are currently in negotiations with other international acts whose schedules are free, to try and secure festive season shows for the benefit of our supporters and music lovers in general before the end of this year, logistics permitting. As the obstacles we faced were of a purely health and safety matter, we realised that the safety of the crowd comes way ahead of any other concerns and our electrical engineers are happy we have taken this bold, although unfortunate decision based on their advice.
We apologise for any inconvenience these changes may have caused and look forward to a continued strong relationship and creating a formidable growth trajectory in promoting the arts for both local and international artistes. With profound thanks; Patrick Vijay Hundu : for and on behalf of Triplife Entertainment
