The ‘Vibration’ hitmaker was slated to headline the Afro-Fusion Festival slated for 10th, July 2021, at the Ngong Race Course. But that will now not happen.

Further reports indicate the high numbers of attendees expected at the highly publicized event and the revised Covid-19 protocols posed a huge challenge for the organizers to stage a successful event.

Several efforts to reach Vortex Logistics have been futile.

However, there have also been reports the musician was yet to receive a down payment ahead of the event as agreed by both parties.

Tickets for the hyped concert were retailing at Sh7, 000 for VVIP and Sh5, 000 for VIP with the ordinary ones ranging between Sh2, 000-Sh3, 000 before the new turn of events.

Fireboy rose to fame after dropping his debut album, Laughter, Tears, and Goosebumps in 2019.

Among other notable songs that propelled him to international fame, include Tatoo, Scatter, Lifestyle, and Eli
