Nandy defends performing in a half empty hall in Cote d’Ivoire
A few weeks after Tanzanian artistes Zuchu and Rayvanny were put in the spotlight for performing in almost empty halls, fellow singer Nandy now has been made to defend herself after a similar situation occurred during her performance in Cote d’Ivoire.
A video shared by the Ninogeshe hit maker captures her on stage performing in a half-empty hall. According to Nandy, the event was a private invite-only function.
“Thank you COTE D’IVORE 🔥!!! INVITE ONLY….. Private party performance,” Nandy said.

But this did not stop a fan from pointing out the matter.
“Jamani huu mwaka wasanii wanaambulia patupu mungu wasmamie huyu watatu ila siombaya. (My goodness! This year seems to be brutal for artistes. God, help them),” wastara.bakari59 wrote.
The comment was not well received by Nandy.
“Weweeee komaaa iyo show ya waalikwa special!!!Ma BOSS wa bank na wafanya kazi usikurupukieeee vitu mchawiii wewe! Na USIONE watu wanapambana unawacheka kajaze wewe mtaani kwenu kwanza
(You! Stop it. That show was for special VVIPs only. It was a private show for the bank bosses and their employees. Don’t just jump to conclusions, you witch! Don’t see people hustling you start laughing at them? You go fill performance halls in your neighbourhood first),” Nandy replied.

Last month Rayvanny performed at a half-empty hall in Houston while on his US tour.
This, however, did not stop Rayvanny, also known as Chui, from performing for the few fans who attended the Saturday event.
A few weeks before Rayvanny’s performance Zuchu’s event also flopped.
Her Houston performance was the first stop on her US tour, which took her to three different venues.

In a post on Insta stories, the singer said she cried over the show but she said it was a lesson to do better in the future.
“As an artiste, nobody ever prepares you for moments like this. My show in Houston didn’t go as planned. But I thank everyone who came out to see me. I love y’all. As I’m crying and sobbing right now but it has given me the strength to do more,” Zuchu said.
“Recently I lost my energy to even work hard. I kept asking why did I choose this career but moments like this have given me the answers. A few chosen ones are used as an example for the benefit of others,” the WCB queen said.
This is the first time the WCB signee is performing in the US after she was picked as one of the performers at the Gala of the 2022 Afrimma Awards.
