A recap of Charma Gal's UK takeover

A recap of Charma Gal's UK takeover

Oct 31, 2018, 12:20 PM

So as we reported last week Charma Gal was set to head to Leicester, UK for her first ever solo performance in the West. Since her departure rumours had started to swirl about her and her crew possibly being stranded in tthe UK but in true Charma Gal form, she deaded those rumours with a live Facebook feed and made sure to keep her fans back home updated on all her moves while in Dublin.





Upon their arrival Charma and her crew went on a ferry ride and she shared that while her and her crew were safe an healthy, the cold UK weather as definitely slapping.



The group then prepped and went to perform and let me just say that the love she received over there was absolutely breathtaking. There are a lot of Batswana over there in the UK and they clearly miss home because the crowd went absolutely mad for Charma's set.  Speaking later on in a post performance live feed Charma shared how she was a bit taken aback by the display of white privilege she'd seen during her show. Apparently the white people in the crowd had wanted to bully their way to the front but the Batswana in the crowd simply weren't going to allow that to happen.





Overall she had a stunning performance which allowed her to give Batswana in the diaspora and taste of home, and she said she'd reveal much more about her trip once she gets back home.





Her experience however stands contrary what Babes Wodumo, who was also set to perform alongside Charma, shared on Insta. It's not clear whether Babes ended up performing at all but she released a lengthy statement on Insta essentially calling out the promoter behind the show for mismanaging her and being the reason behind a dud of a show and her failure to perform at one of the shows.

Hi everyone its tym i speak out about the event organiser/promoter's treatment... On the 27th as much as i was heart broken and emotionally drained but i would have performed but i was notified that the venue wasnt paid for so i stayed at the hotel cause i dont want any trouble...now about last night.....I was very excited about last nights gig i sat at the BnB until i was fetched at 2am while he(Mkhukhwini)left me and my team to go and quickly fetch the other artist but surprisingly i arrived 1st at the venue he was no where to be found and what makes it worse the fans were furious cause apparently the show started at 9pm but i arrived before 3am little did they know i was waiting at the BnB like they were as well and i was also not happy cause there was no communication between me and him but because i love my fans with all my heart i performed.....My statement right now is to warn all artists about uMkhukhwini as much as i have heard stories about him but most stories i thought they cant be true unfortunately i learnt the hard way that those stories are 100% true DONT EVER TAKE A GIG THAT COMES FROM MKHUKHWINI/KASILUV PRODUCTION YOU WILL REGRET IT.....its time we put a stop to these promoters who use artists for their own benefits i feel used i wont lie and my concerns are directed to international fans cause this is also unfair to them as well.....Just wanna tell you guys how much i love you and yes ill make sure this doesn't happen ever again❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤
