I was unable to deliver my performance today due to problems caused by the event coordinators. I put in my utmost effort to provide you with an outstanding show today, but unfortunately, my set was abruptly interrupted and my DJ was forcibly removed from the stage.
We were not informed beforehand that the use of profanity was prohibited during our performance.” Furthermore, he mentioned that the organizers issued a threat of arrest against him and his team if they persisted in performing.

One of the event promoters went so far as to threaten to summon security and have us detained. Eventually, it was concluded that I would not be able to carry out the performance.”
Addressing my dedicated fans in St. Lucia, please be rest assured that I will make it a priority to return and fulfill my commitment to you. Joeboy is among the most accomplished Nigerian musicians.
