Gilbert ‘PP’ wa Pimp was hired to oversee the event and everything that took place, but he wants more money now. The promoter is accusing the artists of making ink on the dotted line while he was intoxicated.

PP was engaged to take care of the event and apparently signed off high shares but now wants to change. He is the one holding rights to ticket sale funds in Botswana and won’t sign out the millions” wrote Daniel Kenosi.
