What was thought and expected to be the biggest reggae concert of the year was last night disrupted and turned out to be a battle field.

According to sources, this happened after Ivory Coast’s legendary reggae artist Alpha Blondy and Jamaica’s Tarrus Riley failed to show up for the show.

Apparently, revelers were informed by Ghetto Radio’s MCs that the show will start at about 11 a.m. and by 3 a.m. the two artists were nowhere to be seen which irked the revelers.

What happened next was a total mess and chaos started within KICC grounds as bottles and cans of beer flew all over the place, plastic chairs were also broken as beers and merchandise stolen.

The security personnel who had kept vigil took an exit because they feared the rage of the reggae lovers.
