Musicians B Flow and Kachanana last Saturday left Mongu residents begging for more when they performed at the Triple V Concert at Mulambwa Ground.
The day which started on a rather good note, however, ended with bad scenes as excited fans smashed the screen of B Flow’s vehicle when he tried to make his way out, around 17:00 hours.
This was after the musician’s vehicle, which was mobbed by fans, mainly teenagers, got stuck in sand.
In no time, the security team which was helping police to keep order at the venue came to his aid, but as soon as he got on an alternative vehicle, some fans started stoning the stuck car.
B-Flow posted this on his Facebook page:
“Here’s what really happened in Mongu…I did not go for a political rally. I went to teach.
Some of you may be aware that we are doing countrywide concerts dubbed “Triple V” (My Vote, My Voice, My Victory) under the go out and vote project.
So I went to do my civic duties as a conscious artist/Activist in Mongu on Saturday, and thousands of people came to watch as we performed(as you can see in the pucture). However, at the end of the show, it was difficult for security to get me to where my car was parked because there were too many people that wanted to take pictures with me. After a lot of effort, I got in the car but it got stuck in the Mongu sand, so I was taken into a different car and I left. My manager and some bouncers remained to get the car out of the sand, then some malicious people appeared and began stopping them from moving the car, because they wanted money and t-shirts from B Flow. My team got the car out and tried to escape the “bad gang” but they were stoned and the rear windscreen was damaged. Thank God the gang leader and two others were arrested. Don’t worry about me, am very fine and now in Lusaka. Don’t even worry about the car; material things come and go but the love of Christ stays with us forever brothers and sisters. Thanks to the fans that came to support us. Chant it on!”
The organisations include the Zambia National Women’s Lobby (ZNWL), Anti-Voter Apathy Project (AVAP), Operation Young Vote (OYV) and Young Women in Action (YWA).
So far, four concerts have been held in Chipata, Lusaka, Kabwe and Mongu by artistes Macky 2, Slap D, Mampi, Kachanana, B Flow and Chef.
