It still remains unclear what really transpired on Friday the 18th December 2020 that led to the cancellation of the highly anticipated Winky D and Jah Prayzah Concert which was set to be the second ground breaking Pay Per View (PPV) event after a similar show last week that headlined Janet Manyowa at the HICC.

The organisers of the event Kayse Connect in partnership with the digital platform Gateway Stream announced almost an hour after the scheduled start that the event could not go ahead.
Unconfirmed indication are that the Police shut down the event allegedly over Covid_19 regulations violation.
It is believed the officials were not keen to even allow the event to go ahead and only stream with no audience. We are yet to know if the event will be rescheduled or its a closed chapter.
We are still finding out the value of the loses incurred by the promoter but several thousands in US dollars were lost.
earGROUND will be updating you with official information from the promoter or the relevant ministries once we have secured it.
Meanwhile Gateway Stream has written to everyone who bought tickets for the event that they will be getting a refund. The tickets were selling for USD$2 or local equivalence.
