MONROVIA, Dec. 12— SoulFresh concert at the Bernard beach erupted into a melee Sunday night in which three spectators were injured and $5000 equipment damaged. They had the numbers, but not the organization for a smooth and easy show.
“The lack of discipline from supporting artists led to the disturbance. Two artists, Takun J and Chiller Coolnanee, got on stage and performed longer than the time given. Both artists were told to perform only two songs, but they performed 3 songs each, instead. During Chiller Coolnanee performance, he was cut short, when he started singing the third song. The artist got upset and started provoking his fans to react, asking if they wanted him to continue performing. The fans got hyped up, throwing stones and bottles on stage, leading to the unfortunate eruptions.” Edwin Tisdell .
The Liberian entertainment industry is badly in need of structure, discipline and education. We need discipline entertainers and managements.
