Afro dancehall artiste, Stonebwoy has hinted that his flagship concert, Ashaiman to the world may not come off this year due to some stumbling blocks beyond his control.
The concert which has been running for four consecutive years has proven to be more than just an entertainment event due to its focus on different social issues.
The Saka Saka Park in Ashaiman has had the privilege of hosting all four editions so far but the availability of the venue this year appears to be causing some headache to the ‘Bhim Nation’ boss and the organizers.
He shared details when Nana Adwoa Sarkodie of Citi News caught up with him.
“The reality is that, for us to have done it four years running, we wish it will stay. One of the major reasons why it is looking like it might not be a possibility [this year], though it has not been written off totally, is because the area is being sold…There is some confusion going on regarding that issue.”
“We don’t want to set a date for them to start the project so that’s what is going on now. I am contemplating if it’s going to happen or not. Even if it doesn’t happen this year, it will definitely happen next year. An election year gives me a stronger stance to make it happen because I need that to unify the people like I have always done giving a platform to opinion leaders to come and educate the masses. Ashaiman to the world is forever but doesn’t have to happen each year,” he stated.
That aside, Stonebwoy is currently promoting his new single Ololo feat Nigerian act Teni.
