Chris Martin apologizes for mugging and violence at his event, promises to return soon

Jamaican crooner Chris Martin has apologized for mugging and violent incidents during his performance over the weekend.

The 32-year-old hitmaker has spoken out on reports of mugging incidents that marred his Big Deal Concert at the weekend at Impala grounds in Nairobi.

In a series of tweets, Martin said that he was mortified to learn that some individuals took the opportunity to rob his fans of their valuables; especially since they braved the cold, rainy weather just to attend his live performance.

“Now… I see a few reports about my concert in Nairobi this past weekend and how my performance was marred by muggers and the lack of proper security. Whilst performing I did see a few scuffles that threw me off but I didn’t know the magnitude of what was happening,” Martin tweeted.

He apologised to those affected. “I’d like to extend my sincerest apologies to those affected by those criminals who targeted my awesome supporters who braved the inclement weather to come, enjoy and sing some #SweetSugahReggae wid mi! Mi vex yf,” he wrote.

The ‘Cheater’s Prayer’ hitmaker, however, promised his fans of coming back for another concert which he promises will be bigger and better.

“Anyway… Nairobi you were the best despite it all and I had the time of my existence!!!! I will definitely be returning soon and we’re gonna have an even better time… unuh ready!?? Wait til mi comeback Love you all,” he tweeted.

As reported by The Sauce, Martin noticed a few scuffles during his performance and commented on the situation. “Nairobi, I didn’t come to see you fight, this event is all about love, if you came to fight please go home,” said the hitmaker.

Thousands of revellers braved the rain, poor state of the events grounds which was flooded and muddy to attend the highly-anticipated concert. Lack of organization and proper security led to a stampede at the gate with many forcing their way into the event. Many party-goers were also robbed off their valuables like mobile phones at the event.

The organisers, Umoja Splash Festival, already apologised for the security mishap.
