Boy Band Sauti Sol earlier on Saturday revealed that they would have to cancel their much awaited show.
According to a statement from the band, the show had to be cancelled at last minute after realising they would not be able to ensure the safety of revelers during the concert.
The band added that hat they had been informed that the event size would not meet the set covid-19 regulations, and efforts to finding a solution with the promoters were unsuccessful.
“TO OUR FANS
WE REGRET TO INFORM YOU THAT WE SHALL NOT BE PERFORMING AT TODAY’S SCHEDULED “SOL SATURDAY” EVENT. ALTHOUGH WE DEEPLY DESIRE TO GIVE YOU A MARVELOUS SHOW, WE CANNOT IN GOOD CONSCIENCE ASSURE YOUR HEATLTH AND SAFETY WHICH IS OUR HIGHEST PRIORITY.
WE WERE RECENTLY MADE AWARE THAT THE EVENT SIZE DOESN’T COMPLY WITH KENYAN COVID-19 PROTOCOLS AND REGULATIONS. TOGETHER WITH THE PROMOTERS TUKUTANE ENTERTAINMENT LIMITED AND MASSHOUSE GROUP LIMITED, WE TRIED HARD TO MITIGATE THE SITUATION, HOWEVER WE COULD NOT COME TO AN AGREEMENT ON THE BEST WAY FORWARD.
WITH THE RECENT UPTICK IN CONFIRMED INFECTIONS AND DEATHS AROUND THE WORLD WE CANNOT IN GOOD CONSCIENCE RECKLESSLY ENDANGER YOUR WELL BEING.” they wrote in part
The band further clarified that it would be refunding all the monies paid to them so that the promoters would refund their fans.
“WE SHALL BE REFUNDING THE PROMOTERS, TUKUTANE ENTERTAINMENT LIMITED AND MASSHOUSE GROUP LIMITED THE FULL PERFORMANCE FEES DULY PAID TO US WITHOUT DELAY SO THAT THEY CAN PROVIDE SWIFT REFUNDS TO YOU.
IT IS DISHEARTENING AND UNFORTUNATE , BUT NECESSARY AND WE HOPE TO APPEAR ON STAGE AGAIN AS SOON AS WE CAN DO SO SAFELY AND RESPONSIBLY. STAY SAFE.” the band added
