DJ Stokie Clears His Name After Being Accused Of Not Showing up At A Gig
DJ Stokie Clears His Name After Being Accused Of Not Showing up At A Gig. In just a few years, the genre known as Amapiano has gone from a local South African trend to an international phenomenon, finding its way onto dance floors across the globe thanks to widely recognized artists like DJ Stokie.
Stokie was being accused of not showing up at a gig, however he took to social media to clear his name in a now deleted post that reads: “I have never made a No show and I’ve never cancelled any gig.”
Though it seems they have now reached an agreement, the promoter also issued a statement saying everything has been sorted out and that the deal was made “sour” by Stokie’s manager Neo. See post:
There has been a trend of artists not showing up at fully paid gigs. SHA SHA, DJ Maphorisa and Kabza De Small are some of the artists who have been recently accused of not showing up at a gig. They have since been ordered to pay back all of their Victoria Falls carnival bill by organisers of the festival after they did not pitch up despite signed agreements.The tender love hitmakers were supposed to perform on Friday.
Organisers, High Yards’ Stan Chingozho said the three were not at the airport at their expected time of arrival even after they had confirmed the booking, air tickets had been bought and accommodation paid for.”DJ Maphorisa, Kabza De Small and Sha Sha were fully aware and paid in full for the Vic Falls carnival event on the 29th of April 2022 in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. The artists should pay back the full booking fee, all the flights that were booked on time, accommodation that was booked on time, give Vic Falls carnival a statement in this regard and mostly apologise to the fans who travelled all over the world to come and see them perform,” Chingozho said.
