When the Music Stops and Chaos Begins| This Is Why Makhadzi’s Zimbabwe Show Turned Into A Stampede Of Disappointment

After the Good Friday concert in Mutare, which turned into a complete disaster, veteran event organizer Partson “Chipaz” Chimbodza has finally spoken out regarding Makhadzi’s show.

As some of the attendees started throwing projectiles at the VIP section during the show, the South African singer was left in a state of terror, prompting her to run for cover.

According to reports from H-Metro, several fans were injured and taken to the hospital for treatment. The exact number of injured fans has not been disclosed.

Why Makhadzi’s Show In Zimbabwe Was A Disaster

According to initial reports, some fans became angry with Makhadzi’s decision to use pre-recorded tracks and threw objects during her show in Mutare, Zimbabwe.

However, another report suggests that overcrowding at the venue led to a stampede as fans tried to record the performance on their phones.

Chimbodza apologized to Makhadzi and clarified that the security measures were overpowered by the fans, destroying barricades.

This led to chaos and a dangerous situation for both Makhadzi and her fans, ultimately leading to the cancellation of the show.

“Well, I would like to put the record straight regarding what happened in Mutare. Firstly, I would like to apologise to Makhadzi and her team for being caught in the fracas,” he said.

The chaos ensued as fans eagerly tried to catch a glimpse of the popular singer on stage, causing them to break down barricades that were meant to separate VIPs from the ordinary crowd.

As a result, the VIPs started pushing back, which escalated tensions and led to bottles being thrown in their direction.

“It’s true that bottles were thrown onto the stage but they were not targeted at Makhadzi as claimed on the social media and other media outlets. When Makhadzi appeared on stage, fans jostled to catch a glimpse of her and broke barricades demarcating the VIP enclosure and ordinary side. This did not go down well with fans in the VIP and the pushing and shoving resulted in bottles being thrown towards the VIP section. It obviously appeared as they were targeting Makhadzi but the few minutes she performed, people were very happy,” Chipaz said. 

Partson “Chipaz” Chimbodza also urged fans to refrain from violent behavior during live shows.
