Rema, the Afrobeats star, on Thursday, refused to perform in Atlanta, US, describing the venue condition as “terrible”.
The Mavins Records artiste is on his ‘Raves and Roses’ North American Tour II. He was supposed to entertain music lovers at the Tabernacle hotspot.
But in now-viral footage, the 23-year-old could be heard registering his disappointment at the concert’s organisers for providing a venue that “disrespected me and Afrobeats”.
“You guys paid your hard-earned money to do this sh** and I can not get disrespected by this sound. This is rubbish. We do not move like this. Afrobeats is way too big to move like this. I do not take no rubbish,” he said.
He also announced a reschedule of the show before walking off the stage.
“I respect my fans. I do not wanna move like this. I am going to reschedule this show. They have disrespected me and disrespected Afrobeats by treating you guys like this. I am out. I love you,” Rema added.
