Stone Throwing Disrupts Terry Bonchaka Concert

A Terry Bonchaka look-alike
When we all thought we could resurrect the Poulele man, Terry Bonchaka again, we rather saw a stone throwing occurrence which made the crowd, the media, some security persons and the organizers seek refuge at a safe place.

The mood of the onlookers was charged with high excitement from nice performances from Quata, the tongue twisting hiplife artiste.

Bandana, a member of the B-Squard in which Terry was a member sang a tribute song to him before unleashing his ?Moko Hoo? song that the crowd liked so much.

Other artistes who supported the show were K.K. Vidash, Okyeame Kojo Kum, Nyansapo, Olonguazi and more.

Some fashion designers showcased their 2004 wear which were worn by some of the Terry Bonchaka look-alikes who also performed and graced the occasion.

There was a parade of Terry Bonchaka look-alikes who came on stage to show who really looked like Terry. The crowd had to be the judges and at the end two who had to battle it out with a dance competition.

Omanhene, Koo Fori and B.B. Menson steered the programme well until some unknown ?young guys? decided to disrupt the show by throwing stones into the crowd and on the stage. This led to the cancellation of the programme because it could damage the musical and television equipments and also hurt someone.

Lovers of Terry Bonchaka, who thought they could have a good show at the beach on Sunday were all disappointed when they realised that the musical equipments were not working and as such the show had to start as late as 4:30 pm.

The crowd eagerly waited till their favourite artistes like Wise & Chanzy, Osa Ray, Boeboeshante, Olonguazi, Bandana, Tinny, Buk Bak, Obour, and many other artistes lighted up the stage for them.

This is an advice from me to organizers when they are planning for shows in an open air area; the security should be tight and also learn to start programmes on time.

I hope Terry?s soul was not affected by the misadventures and wrong timing that went on at the Trade Fair and the La Beach respectively. May Terry Bonchaka's soul rest in perfect peace!!!
