Hours after the show, reports indicated Yaa Pono was prevented from performing on the night for unknown reasons.
This has since led to speculations with many speculating a supposed beef between both artists.
In a social media post, Julio expatiated;
“How many times do we stand still and watch organisers mess up with the Brand…why do we always have to go on stage at 4am…when our fans arrive at 6pm…we expect them to stand from 6pm to 4am before they watch their king perform…
you give us 12pm then we always have to compromise and allow every act to go on stage and the excuse is “we’ve been trying to reach them but they aren’t picking their calls ..
Our road manager is always at the venue from 6 pm coordinating and waiting for organisers to give us the green light…Shatta has made it a point to suggest Yaa pono anytime event organisers ask which acts he wants on his platform so why this unnecessary Rants..when clearly it’s either your road manager isn’t working with time or rather direct your rants to the producers of the event…
Same thing happened in Abetiffi… Unnecessary Unnecessary Unnecessary hype ….”
