Violence broke out at Odyssey Night Club in Kadoma after Zimdancehall artist Soul Jah Love failed to turn up for a show he was billed to perform. Witnesses told The Chronicle that Seh Calaz and Killer T put up a good show which was spoiled by Soul Jah Love’s failure to turn up.
Fans threw stones, beer cans and bottles on stage after DJs started disconnecting speakers at 3 AM. A source who spoke on condition of anonymity said:
People were waiting for Jah Love to perform. Seh Calaz and Killer T had already performed and then one of the DJs was spotted disconnecting speakers and people started throwing missiles onto the stage. A stampede ensued as people tried to head for the exits to escape the melee. There were some people who were injured.
The witness also claimed Soul Jah Love’s manager Benjamin Nyandoro was also there waiting for him to arrive. Efforts by The Chronicle to get comments from Soul Jah Love’s manager Nyandoro or the organiser of the show D Nosh were fruitless.
