It was meant to be his biggest appearance in the New Gambia, but Pape Diouf’s Penchi Mi Hall concert flopped beyond imagination despite the endless hype.
The Senegalese star failed to draw in his usual crowds. According to a source, hundreds of tickets for the concert were unsold.
Some fans quickly took to Facebook to express their surprise and disappointment at the poor turn out at the Pencha Mi Hall, which usually has a capacity of more than 3000.
Radio presenter, Abdoulie Bah wrote: “Whoever cast a spell on Pape Diouf should please remove it!”
A Gambian entertainment journalist, who attended the concert, disclosed it was a massive embarrassment for Pape Diouf, who is still a big giant in the Senegalese music arena.
“It was a complete disaster, very few people showed up. It could be the organisers didn’t do a good job.”
Is it game over for Pape Diouf?
