Reggae dancehall lovers and event organisers were left disappointed on Saturday as rising dancehall queen, Lady Squanda failed to turn up for her birthday bash at Aquatic Complex, in Chitungwiza after she allegedly fell ill.

The birthday girl turned 21 on the day. Her husband, Leeroy Pasi said she failed to pitch up for the gig because she was experiencing period pains.

"Yes I can confirm that she failed to turn up for the event. It's unfortunate that on the day she fell ill with severe period pains," he said.

In what proved to be a raw deal for the anticipating crowd, Dadza D and South African based urban grooves artisteEnock "Nox" Guni of the "Ndinonyara" fame who were also expected to grace the occasion failed to turn up for the show as earlier stated.

Hillary Mutake boss of Punchline Entertainment heaped the blame on Lady Squanda describing her act as 'unprofessional".

It is alleged that Squanda did not even communicate to the event organisers and decided to stay at home.

"Squanda did not even bother to communicate to us as promoters of he show and when we tried to get hold of her, her phone was not reachable and her husband was not picking up his phone," lamented Mutake.

"I traveled all the way from Centenary. I come here anticipating that Nox will be performing and to my surprise he did not turn up.

"To make the matter worse, Lady Squanda did not even turn up," fumed Stephen Mumbamuchena of Centenary.

Despite the birthday girl failing to turn up, Rickfire, Freeman and Guspy Warrior gave people value for their money as they lit up the show with electric performances.
