Chris Martin’s Big deal concert organizers apologize for muggings
A section of revelers who braved the rains to watch Jamaican reggae artiste Chris Martin are still counting their loses after being mugged during the concert.
According to those who attended the concert, many people lost their mobile phones and cash as a result of pick pockets.
At some point fans could not even take photos of the singer on stage because of phone snatchers.
Following the outcry on social media, the organizers of the event, Umoja Splash Festival have issued an apology to all those who lost valuables at the event.
“We have great respect for fans who have supported our shows and we apologize for the lapses in controls and security.” Read the statement
Chris Martin also issued a statement via twitter confirming that he witnessed a scuffle while performing but did not know what was happening.
“Now…I see a few reports about my concert in Nairobi this past weekend and how my performance was marred by muggers and the lack of proper security. Whilst performing I did see a few scuffles that threw me off but I didn’t know the magnitude of what was happening” he tweeted
The event that went down at Impala grounds on Saturday saw revelers enjoy stunning performances from local artistes Elani, Bensoul and ofcorse Jamaicans D Major, Future Fambo and Chris Martin himself.
