According to one of the executive directors of Groove entertainment who pleaded anonymity, “Soun Kuti and the Egypt 80 band that were supposed to be the main host wee in far away Libya on a musical four, as a result most artistes could not rehearse with the band, hence the show became a flop even a week before the date of the proposed event which would have been carnival like.”

The sponsors of the ill fated event like Silver Bird Television, NTA Channel 5, Multi Choice, Lagos State Broadcasting Corporation, Ltd are said to be very disappointed at the turn of event.
