FRANCISTOWN: Makhadzi’s show turned into a complete nightmare as some revellers were left with big lumps while others sustained severe injuries after the crowd retaliated when pepper spray was used on them.

Although there were rumors circulating on social media that the absence of South African socialite, Zodwa was the main reason people went bananas leading to bottles being hurled from the crowd to the main stage, the truth is that all was well until security guards used pepper spray on the attendants.

Everything turned sour at around 2.30am when Vee Mampeezy got onto the stage and performed his old time track Baba.

The fans went into frenzy and started pushing each other out of excitement leading to a mini stampede and a few barricade fences falling down.
