Regardless of whether he showed up in the country or not, Congolese singer Fally Ipupa was not meant to perform at Cricket Oval Lugogo after the management banned people from holding events at the grounds. It could actually be one of the reasons that stopped the show from happening apart from Fally not showing up.
In the same vein, a few days to the Blankets and Wine edition, the management of the event announced that the venue of the show had been changed from Cricket Oval to the Indian Association Grounds. The reason as to why there was a change at such short notice was however not disclosed to the public.
Information reaching the Sqoop desk from a reliable source indicates that the shows were either moved or cancelled because the grounds have been affected by the recent rains.
This has forced the management of the place to stop all events from happening at the grounds till further notice.
We are yet to establish if the festival among other events that have been taking place at the Oval will find a new home or will come back to the grounds when the venue gets back in shape.
