Asake, the Nigerian singer, says his “heart is with those who were injured” in the crowd crush at his concert in Brixton, London.


On Thursday, the musician had a show at the 4900-capacity O2 Academy in Brixton where he performed ‘Mr. Money With The Vibe’, his debut album.

The concert was, however, cancelled part-way after the crowd breached the doors and security.

The incident was said to have left some of the concert-goers injured, with eight of them currently hospitalised.


In a statement on Friday, Asake apologised to fans over the disruption of the concert. He also commiserated with those injured in the crowd crush.

The singer said he is trying to reach out to individuals affected.

“My heart is with those who were injured last night and caused any form of discomfort. pray you get well soonest. I am also in the process of reaching out to individuals,” he wrote.


“I still do not have the full brief from the venue management themselves as to what led to the disruption at the entrance of The Brixton Academy, but we are thankful that all was peaceful at the end.

“For my people who enjoyed the beginning of my performance, am sorry that it was cut short. Thank you for your unbelievable love London. I love you too much! I’m looking forward to seeing you again in a bit!”
