The One People Lucky Dube Band Tour which was supposed to kick start in Fiji yesterday has been cancelled.
Organisers of the show, Sisters Events in a statement said they only came to find out on Wednesday that the band's performance fee was not made although this was arranged in advance.
The organisation went on to say that they are not at liberty to discuss the reasons about the event but added they were extremely disappointed with the happenings.
Sisters Events entered into an agreement with a partner whose major role was to pay for all on the ground expenses
"Sisters Events would like to apologise to the public of Fiji of raising their hopes and expectations and would like to state that all the promotions and all arrangements with event partners and stakeholders were done in good faith."
"With an extremely tight timeframe, Sisters was able to source enough funds to try and get One People on the plane and not disappoint the One People – Lucky Dube – fans however; a development occurred that caused them to put a major halt to all arrangements," the statement continued.
Meanwhile, event sponsor Vodafone Fiji Limited's corporate affairs manager Shailendra Prasad told FijiLive that fans who bought tickets for the shows in Suva, Nadi and Labasa will be refunded.
