Music experts believed the Elephant Man 'Let's Get Physical' concert was meant to flop from the onset.Only a handful of revellers (around fifty) turned up for the gig at Kati Kati Bar and Restaurant on Saturday.
The Jamaican singer did not even show up with everything a mess. Local star Coco Finger, who was at the venue also as a reveller, offered to entertain the crowd when the news filtered through that Elephant Man would be a no show.
The organisers, who fronted Wine Garage's Allan Ntanda, were arrested for duping Ugandans. The show was originally meant to take place at Cricket Oval in Lugogo but organisers failed to pay the Shs40 million renting price.
This is the reason they shifted to Kati Kati. However, they had already paid Shs10million to the Oval management. And Kati Kati though cheaper was worth Shs 7million. WTF has learnt that Silk Events, which was to provide stage but later pulled out, had been paid around Shs 10 million upfront.
The makeshift stage provided by Uncle Mitch's Eclipse and one Henry pocketed around Shs 4million. The artiste alone was paid a mammoth $20,000(around Shs 50 million) and yet he did not perform.
All these costs are minus security, advertorial and miscellaneous. Combined it all cost around Shs 150 million.
