2face ‘2baba’ Idibia, veteran Nigerian sensational singer, suffered the fate of an unknown performing artist last weekend in Rwanda, when about fifty people attended his concert in the East African country.
The sparsely attended concert that was held on Friday at Kigali Serena hotel was the second time 2face would be performing in Kigali since 2006.
The Nigerian star was brought into Rwanda by Belinda Umurerwa, who runs an events company, Kigali entertainment Promoters.
All was not well as the organisers did not convince people to attend the show, which many attributed to poor planning and timing.
Although the concert was scheduled to start by 6pm, the empty seats forced the organisers to push back until 10p.m.
New Rwanda Times reports that the ‘African Queen’ star got on the stage around 11:30p.m. This was after hours of dialogue between his management team and the organisers of the show.
When the singer eventually got on stage, he tendered an apology to the audience while promising to do a “unique” show.
“Hello Kigali. i do know you’re very few but we don’t want to speak about whatever happened. i am going to do a unique show for you who managed to come”, he said.
2face was reported to have performed less than 5 songs including before his manager beckoned on him to round up.
According to Rwandan press, the show flopped as a result of the organisers failed to succinctly promote the show.
Some Rwandan fans took to social media to comment on the embarrassing incident
