It was to have been a time of merriment and great music at the Pepper Explosion Street Bash in Krugersdorp, but gunmen shot into the air, scaring away people, and Okmalumkoolkat’s gig was called off.
Speaking to TshisaLIVE on the incident, Mayenzeke Masele of Precious Events said the gunmen “took what they took.” He did not say exactly what.
“We thank god that nobody had to lose their lives through the chaos and flying bullets on our side, we hope that everyone was safe from the crowd as well. With the help of the hired security and police the situation cooled down,” he added.
It was a close shave for Okmalumkoolkat who has been in the vanguard of creating awareness on women abuse. “We literally got there and sh*t went down,” he said of the event he missed. But there is still a chance he would make another event at Krugersdorp soon.
This should pacify some fans who had come to see the rapper, DJ Speedsta’s feature on “Combos Communicating,” perform live. Coming just days after the unsavoury incidents post Global Citizen Festival, many are beginning to worry if the crime rate is about to go up after all.
There was no record of death at the Pepper Explosion Street Bash in Krugersdorp, and that’s the important thing to many. You too? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
