On Thursday, December 15, 2022, halfway through the sold-out performance, fans attempted to break into the venue.
Asake has issued a statement regarding the security breach that resulted in the cancellation of his London show.
The singer was forced to cancel his sold-out show yesterday, December 15, at the O2 Academy Brixton, because many fans who didn’t have tickets tried to force their way in.
After a suspected crush at the London event, it was reported that eight people had been taken to the hospital, four of whom were in critical condition.
The singer issued a statement regarding the unfortunate incident on his Instagram page.
Asake stated that he is in the process of contacting those who were injured at the concert and that his heart is with them.
The ‘organize’ singer also appreciated his fans and the love they had for him, stating that he hoped to see them soon.
In his words: “My heart is with those who were injured last night and caused any form of discomfort. I pray you get well soonest. I am also in the process of reaching out to individuals. I still do not have the full brief from the venue management themselves as to what led to the disruption at the entrance of the Brixton Academy, but we are thankful that all was peaceful at the end. For my people who enjoyed the beginning of my performance, I am sorry that it was cut short. Thank you for your unbelievable love London. I love you too much! I’m looking forward to seeing you again in a bit!!”
