There was a general low turnout on Sunday, October 13, Church services on the prestigious Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) campus after a showdown concert by the BET HipHop Best International Flow Act, Sarkodie on Saturday, October 12 at the Royal Parade Grounds.
The Show which was massively attended run deep into the nights and saw many artistes like DarkoVibes, KelvynBoy, Tulenkey, Efya, RJZ, Joey B and many others thrilling the students with spectacular performances. Mypurefmonline.com reports
Sarkodie who came on stage around 1:30am performed hits after hits to the cheering attendees and later crowned it with his new hit single, Saara, with award winning female vocalist, Efya.
Church Service was heavily affected on Sunday as many of the students who went for the event failed to show up.
Expressing a disappointment in the development, the Minister in charge of KNUST’s Ghana Methodist Students Union (GHAMSU), Rev. Anokye Kyei Baffour bemoaned after his sermon that, anytime an artiste comes on campus, Church service attendance is hugely affected and it calls for a probe.
“Because Sarkodie was here yesterday, you can find many empty spaces here. Anytime an artiste comes to perform on campus, Church attendance becomes affected. Last year it was Shatta Wale, this year it’s Sarkodie. We must investigate this.” He told the congregation as part of his closing remarks.
The KNUST GHAMSU Church has a population of over three thousand (3000) people, usually filling the CCB auditorium with some sitting outside and monitoring proceedings from mounted giant screens.
The auditorium was half full this time around after the Sarkodie showdown as there were a number of empty seats spotted, and no one occupying the ones arranged outside the CCB auditorium.
