The organizer of the ‘Mombasa Rocks’ featuring America’s R&B star Chris Brown says she is aware of rumours that Tanzania’s curtain raiser Vanessa Mdee has pulled out of the much-awaited show.

Asked if she was aware that Mdee had pulled out, Thandi Ojeer of Wale Wasee told Nairobi News: “I have heard that from my management. The event is tomorrow (Saturday) so you can imagine my phone is going crazy…she is an amazing woman and I’d love her to come…she is an amazing woman with an talent.”


Vanessa was one of the artistes who had been announced as the curtain raisers to American Hip Hop and RnB artiste Chris Brown and Nigerian hit maker Wizkid.

In the alleged post on her Instagram page that has been deleted she says, “I was supposed to perform at #mombasaRocks this Saturday but due to the organizers failing to reach our agreements terms, I regret that I will NOT be performing in Mombasa this weekend. Looking forward to rocking with you soon.”

Another Bongo artiste who had been named to curtain raise for the two big artiste is Ali Kiba. Chris brown is set to perform on Saturday in Mombasa at the Nyali Golf club.
