Mayorkun, a young and brilliant Afrobeats singer, had an electrifying performance at the 2023 Calabar Festival Mega Concert at the U J Esuene Stadium in Calabar.
It was an electric performance that elicited ecstasy and frenzy from the audience.
The crowd’s enthusiasm inspired Mayorkun to promise N500,000 (Five Hundred Thousand Naira) to a specific fan, prompting a further ecstatic applause from the audience.
However, Mayorkun repeated the N500,000 vow midway through his performance, fueling hopes that he would keep his promise.
He continued his show and entered the appreciative audience, where he hurled his t-shirt into the sea of heads.
It was all rosy and in cruise control, until the artist abruptly halted his performance, albeit having about ten minutes left to perform.
He left the stage and the expectant young fans were livid that he was not keeping to his promise.
It is not certain who went for Mayorkun’s jewellery as the crowd surged towards him seeing his departure without information on the promise made.
During the whole process, he lost two valuable pieces of jewellery.
Upon realising his loss, Mayorkun went on his social media handle to express his dissatisfaction over the incident.
A Cross River state-born star artist, Inyanya Mbuk, in solidarity with Mayorkun, also took to his social media handles to appeal for the stolen jewellery to be returned.
Security agents also swiftly swung into action, and efforts put in place so far, in less than 24 hours, produced one of the lost pieces of Jewellery.
