Huge blow for Heavy K

Mzansi DJ and producer Heavy K caught a big L in Botswana over the weekend after his one-man show flopped.

Heavy K was scheduled to perform at the Notwane Lifestyle club on Saturday. However, the event did not go off as planned after he allegedly failed to sell tickets.

According to a local online publication, Heavy K blamed the flopping of his one-man show on the weather. In a video, the House music maestro said,

“I’ve been here since Friday, as you know that we were supposed to have Heavy K live in concert, but due to unfavourable weather conditions, we had to postpone the show.

“But I have good news for you. Since I’m already here, instead of going back home without performing I’ve decided to be live tonight at the same venue Notwane Lifestyle club. You guys must come through, it will be a free event.

“It’s just to give you guys the gimmick of the show. It’s from me, from my heart to you, as you’d know that I’ve always had a rollercoaster relationship with Botswana. I’m trying, by all means, to make sure I perform before I leave the country. The new date for Heavy K live in concert will be announced.”

A source told the publication that Heavy K’s show flopped after he failed to sell tickets to the event due to stiff competition.

“There were about 10 big events in Botswana with Amapiano artists headlining those events. As a result, people were not interested in Heavy K’s show. I strongly believe that tickets did not move and that forced him to cancel at the last minute…it eventually stopped raining and events continued as planned.”

However, Heavy K denied the claims. In a very terse statement, he simply said,

Its not true.”

After failing to perform on Saturday, Heavy K performed on Sunday for free. The entry fees for Saturday’s one-man show were R150 for standard and R500 for VIP.

Ironically, in March, Makhadzi staged her own one-woman show in Botswana which left her gushing after its success.
