The CEO recently on his facebook account and whatsapp groups shared the MOU contract signed by Tangains Tuitie Haffner the Director, ahead of their show. In his words “The ministry of sports and stadium management are all members of the TANGAINS Festival Committee including Freetown Playa and TBS. The Stadium Manager and the Minister are witness to all the signed document. It took us a month to conclude on this document.
It took over a week for the Minister to review this 15 pages MOU with LAKE Production Company Limited and the Tangains Committee. Tangains has been organizing this festival for the past 30 years in partnership with stadium management.
Why the shock cancellation from the “Powers that be” if we have met all this legal and documentation process with the stadium management via their committee.
Like we said, we’re not going to say anything again but leave our case to Allah to fight our course. We are going to bear the brunt of our lost for the greater good of all. Allah is supreme.”
Citizens from across the country are calling on the government and ministry responsible to remove the ban and allow them to show love to their fellow Sierra Leoneans who have been doing great in the entertainment industry.
