Gambian mbalax enthusiasts are not happy that it will cost D700 for an ordinary ticket to Youssou Ndour’s stadium concert.
Even for die-hard fans of the award-winning superstar that’s a lot of money, and far more than what reggae fans paid last week to see Chronixx.
The concert is expecting to be the first major concert of 2019 with VIP tickets selling for D1, 5000.
The organisers, Absolute Entertainment, disclosed on their Facebook page that the king of kora, Jaliba Kuyateh will open for Youssou at the Independence Stadium in Bakau.
As for fans who can’t afford the tickets; they might just have to find some solace in Facebook live streaming that might happen during the Senegalese superstar’s performance.
