picture 071.jpgThe reception of  R‘n’B artist Akon was marred by chaos and confusion by the show organisers as members of the media including the ZBC team were manhandled and denied access to the star’s arrival function.


There was mayhem at the Harare International Airport as people from a cross section of the nation came to witness the arrival of Akon.


 The show organisers – ZTA and Zimswag – showed lack of organisation and disregard for the media as they manhandled and denied the media access to Akon and it remains a mystery how they held a news conference without members of the media.

One may also wonder how they can manage a packed National Sports Stadium with a capacity of 60 000 after failing to identify genuine press with such a small crowd.


The ZTA seems to have hijacked the show from Prince Tendai’s Zimswag stable as yesterday they held their own press conference at the National Sports Stadium, yet Zimswag held another one at the Meikles Hotel.
