Properties running into thousands of cedis were destroyed at the Fantasy Dome, where the launch of Shatta Wale’s album dubbed ‘Reign’ was held.
On Tuesday, October 16, when JoyNews’ MzGee visited the venue for an interaction with management, she noticed over 200 plastic and metal balustrade which were used as security barricades on the day of the event, were in bad shape.
Sadiq Abdulai Abu, who is a member of management, admits the album launch gave them the biggest number of patrons since they opened for business.
“The Fantasy Dome has been operation since March this year. This is the first time; we are experiencing this big number. Most importantly this is the first time we are having issues such as this.”
Sadiq was certain the damages will be covered by Fantasy Dome’s insurers.
“The entire Fantasy Dome as part of health and safety measures, has been insured so some of these damages are covered. We are still in the post-mortem process but because all these things are anticipated, that is why the entire venue and things in the venue are insured.”
Sadiq also denied claims that some patrons smoked in the premises during the concert.
Patrons also tampered with the settings of the air conditions in the auditorium, hence the heat, he added.
