TF HOSTEL WAS GIVEN APPROVAL FOR A KAROAKE NIGHT, NOT AN ARTISTE NIGHT – UG Dean of Students

Prof Rosina Kyerematen, the Dean of Students at the University of Ghana, has given an explanation for why Shatta Wale did not perform as previously believed.

Allegations of sabotage arose from the self-proclaimed Dancehall King’s team when he was stopped from performing at the University of Ghana.

Nevertheless, during a Radio Univers interview, Prof Rosina Kyerematen stated that the TF Hostel leadership did not request an Artiste Night through her office.

She mentioned that they informed her about the planning of a Karaoke night that would not require heavy security.

Their spontaneous request for an artist night at the last minute was denied due to insufficient time to make the necessary security arrangements.

The administrators of Liman Hall made it known that they desired an artist night, and they ensured that the necessary security measures were put in place for a successful event.

She refuted allegations of the University having issues with Shatta Wale, leading to the choice of not allowing him to perform that night.

“There are claims that approval had been given for an artiste night at James Top Nelson Hall and that is not true. Normally what happens is that when an event is going to be organized by any hall a request for approval is sent to my office with an outline of the programme they intend to organize.

“What they said they were going to do was a karaoke night and so we gave approval for a karaoke night and as far as I am concerned there is a big difference between a Karaoke night and an artiste night. When you are having an artiste night it comes with a lot of implications. Security and all that and so we need to ensure that there is enough security that is why you need approval from University authorities before you can organize an artiste night. Mind you there is a ban in place for student gatherings and processions.

So you cannot just get and say you are bringing an artiste such as Shatta Wale to the University of Ghana campus without the necessary arrangements being made on the ground and also without approval. They did not have approval for an artiste night. Why will the University have problems with Shatta Wale? We have nothing to do with him so why will we have a problem with him,” she said.
