Nutty O Says He Was Snubbed At Rick Ross Show

Zimdancehall chanter Nutty O, whose real name is Carrington Simbarashe Chiwadzwa, says he was snubbed at United States rapper William Leonard Roberts II, affectionately known as Rick Ross’ show held at the Harare International Conference Centre on Friday night.

Nutty O was billed to curtain raise for the US rapper but did not perform as he was not given a chance to do so.

The musician issued a statement to explain to his fans why he failed to perform. He wrote:

The sincerest apologies to #ABXPeople who came through to the Rick Ross concert last night expecting the Nutty O performance.

As you know, we were much excited about yet another link-up and witnessing the Mustard Seed in effect, but due to circumstances beyond our control as Team ABX, despite arriving at the HICC at 9 pm in good time for the program-stated performance time of 22.15pm we were not granted access to the stage area and event by the promoter. Efforts for the Artist, Band and Team to get access tags had failed since the morning of the show day, 18 Nov.

We stayed in constant communication with the organizing team through management to no avail.

By the time we managed to get in, the visiting artist was performing and no other local artist had performed yet, we communicated with our gig contact, and they assured us that we would perform after another visiting Artist who was next.

This did not however happen, the visiting artists all performed and we were backstage until 3 am when the venue had emptied up and the organizers themselves had left.

Even though we had fulfilled our part of the contract, the event organisers did not see through their side of the agreement as:

1. Balance was not paid up by their official stated time of performance (which we had highlighted and assured it will be sorted)

2. Nutty O, band and team were not granted access tags nor access to the event before and during the event

3. Nutty O, the band and the team were denied a performance slot on the stage. (when we eventually got to the backstage)
We were therefore not able to perform as we expected.

Many thanks for your love and support and we look forward to more amicable encounters, more stage chemistry with the ABX People, more #AbilityXtention and a happy festive season ahead.

  1. This is so heart breaking to hear a local artist being snubbed by our very own promoter like this. I pray the Ministry of Youth takes this up with organisers and correct this blatant disrespect to our very own up-coming talent for the sake of the craft and hard earned hustle. We cannot afford as a country to ignore young ppl trying to make an honest living doing the things they love and we watch their dreams being trampled on by those who should champion them. Nyika inovakwa nevene vayo. I also pray the promoters apologize to these young artists and make good. Please kindly take good care of our own for the sake of our beautiful country.
