EIB presenters who performed at S Concert wasted “my time” – Artcile Wan

EIB presenters who performed at S Concert wasted "my time" - Artcile WanOver 50 mainstream and upcoming musicians were billed to perform at the 4th edition of the S Concert, the acclaimed biggest music concert in recent years.

Featuring some of the country’s most adored brands in music, as well as an exciting assembly of budding talents, the concert managed to gather all the billed talents for a night’s drill and thrill.

Ebony, Shatta Wale, Samini, Stonebwoy, Darko Vibes, Kwame Eugene, Joyce Blessing, Kidi, Article Wan were some of the names who were to take turns to perform and entertain fans last Friday, December 1.

Although the show saw a success, many were the issues ‘backstage’ which disturbed the show. Artistes were disrespected, others felt it was rather Ghanaian acts who had no respect for their brand hence tolerated organizers to disrespect them.

Actor Kwadwo Nkansah cum musician, LilWin who was among the performers on the eve made a unique entrance to the stage of the ‘S’ Concert when it was his turn to perform.

Dressed in an all-white gown, LilWin stormed the stage with his dancers and a midget unveiled him to the audience him by taking off his veil as a groom does to his bride.

Quite an interesting show with an estimated 40,000 people who sung along tunes and performances from their favorite stars through the show that saw Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy, Edem, Fancy Gadam, Kidi, Kwame Eugene, and Joyce Blessings perform.

With over 50 acts billed on the night, the show didn’t even see most of the headline acts on its stage throughout the 11-hour event. Samini, Ebony, and Mr. Eazi who flew from London to thrill fans were all stranded and didn’t see the sight of the microphone.

Security at the show was watertight as the military and police team ensured that order could as well be part of the outdoor event yet fast rising act Article Wan has complained that he nearly got injured because of the mistreatment of the security men.

Speaking in an interview with SammyFlex on Zylofon FM, Article Wan revealed that, he was hit in the neck with an object by one of the security men.

“I visited the organizers a day before the event for my car pass among other safety wares but the organizers denied me a pass and asked me to come later on the event day”

“It was hectic on the event eve”

“Organizers had no idea how I managed to get to through the venue. The same security guys who recognized me from the beginning later hit me with an object when I was struggling my way into the audience”

“They didn’t even care about me as Article Wan billed to perform”

Speaking on the event preceding his performance Article Wan had this to narrate:

“I didn’t even get the chance to perform after all the stress I went through”

“Organizers in this country should respect artists, I believe if they respected me enough, I would have been given a special treatment considering the fact that I was also billed to perform”

“My fans missed out on my surprise performance and it’s sad I couldn’t give the audience a piece of the cake ahead of Xmas”

“Instead of billed acts performing, EIB presenters took centre stage to waste our time. All the time the presenters used to perform could have been given to acts to impress their fans but it was wasted by their chants on stage.”

“It was an unnecessary performance and shouldn’t be tolerated.”

“I wasn’t even paid for the performance but we had a contract with the organizers so I believe that was also part of the reasons why I wasn’t treated well. If I was part of the main acts billed to rock the audience I believe I would have been treated better,” he wrapped.
