Olamide held his highly anticipated YBNL concert last night in the UK and the venue was expected to hold about 5000 fans. The event was sold out weeks before the day and last night the concert had to shut down early after security officials could not contain the extra crowd.

According to reports, hundred other fans could not get into the venue and made things unruly outside.

Olamide was unable to give his close off performance and the security had no choice but to close the doors refusing an angry couple hundred fans
entry into the concert . Olamide said after the concert that although he was humbled at the record number of fans who came out to see him, he was still
disappointed at the fact that his fans didn’t get to witness the end of the show which he had prepared for months.

    There was madness both inside and outside. Some Boys started fighting wen olamide was performing . Like two minutes later a girl fainted right in the middle of the concert. The next thing I saw was olamide walking off and everybody was just standing there wondering whether the concert has ended or not. We didn’t even get a goodbye , thanks for coming. Man just walked off

    If it had been David now he’d have said ‘When you’re big you’re big…So many people that my show got shut down. Baba God no ni.’

    Why the lies abegiiii!!!!! The show didnt got locked off. Your promoter (yes you Smade) cant tell me he didnt know London Apollo finishes at 11pm. Olamide literally performed for less than 15mins. Wasted so much time with yeye supporting acts. Security my foot! Didn’t burnaboy performed lastweekend there and his show was soldout also???? So all these show getting locked off is a big lie the least yall can do is to apologised.

      Bolanle ; your dead right, the show was not pulled and ran to time. i work at the venue and yes its a strict 2300 curfew for licensing purposes. the artist and promoter knew this at the beginning and the plug was pulled at 2302 as planned. the show wasnt sold out with small time promoters still selling tickets outside the venue till the end, and doors were closed because a couple of handful of badman wanted to ruin it for everyone and rush the doors so they were closed for that reason.
      Bless

    I was at the show and WHY in the world would any right thinking promoter WASTE time on supporting acts?
    The fans ONLY came to see OLAMIDE and the YBNL crew, not sexy steel or pellar’s son etc, or some Dj. scratching to Rhianna
    When Mo’hits performed at the same venue 4 years , just like YBNL they had MORE than enough act to thrill the fans and enough hits to satisfy the fans,..no stupid supporting act, I’ve NEVER seen a concert where the HEADLINER only performs for 10mins..the whole UNKNOWN supporting act was a waste, even and as for timing at the venue, even ALMIGHTY ADELE’s show was stopped at 11 at the same venue.
    Sell TICKETS to the the venue’s capacity, this is NOT Nigeria where a venue can sit 100 and you sell 500 tickets, this is the UK where health n safety is key..am afraid this might be the end to Nigerian acts/promoters using the 80+years old historic venue…
    an open park might be any promoter’s next options…which is sad..

    Let’s be honest, SMADE IS A USELESS PROMOTER AND NOT AN EVENTS ORGANISER!
    You can’t just make some money from a yahoo deal and then jump and say you want to hold a concert! who you be?
    The concert started late so the venue closed the doors at the agreed time! Stop lying and saying the place was too packed, TELL THE TRUTH!
    Yes Olamide had a good turn out as we all know Yoruba people support their own, however the real reason for the drama was the
    Late start of the show and the incompetence of SMADE.
