By on
Rapper Sarkodie has apologized to patrons of his annual concert ‘RapperHolic’ for the challenges they faced before gaining access to the event venue, and also late start of the show.

Prior to the start of the show, several persons including Media Personality AJ Sarpong took to micro blogging site, Twitter to share their frustrations about being manhandled at the gate by security people and also the late start of the show.

The ‘Glory‘ act in a statement available to us apologized to patrons and also took “full responsibility for any inconvenience caused and apologize unreservedly for any disappointments or let downs.”

He assured fans the right steps would be taken to ensure that it doesn’t happen again.

Read the statement below

“Hello and Merry Christmas.

Let me start by first expressing my deepest gratitude to every single one of you who came out to watch and support the 2017 edition of our Rapperholic Concert.

Much as we would have loved for everything to go as smoothly as it has in other years, my attention has been drawn to the fact that many fans were unable to enter the venue at the announced time caused by a possible laxity by our security. This, among a few other technicalities, led to a rather late start of the show for which we deeply apologize.

In my several years performing live at the Rapperholic show, ensuring that you, my fans get the best in every aspect of the event has always been my highest priority.

My team and I take full responsibility for any inconvenience caused and apologize unreservedly for any disappointments or letdowns.

Rest assured that all necessary measures will be taken to ensure this never happens again!
I thank you and truly appreciate you all for coming out to spend your Christmas evening with me. It is indeed very humbling and I don’t take your love and support for granted.

Once again, I deeply apologize and wish you the very best of the season.

Merry Christmas. Sincerely, Sarkodie & the Sarkcess Team.”
