Imajin Adverstising, organisers of the annual Legends And Legacy Ball, has announced the cancellation of this year’s event.

The event scheduled for December 29 has been called off because of time constraint, organisers say.

“It’s supposed to come off on 29 December. It’s no more coming off. We will package it and bring it out next year,” Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Imajin Advertising, Arnold Kojo Asante, confirmed on Pluzz FM’s AM Pluzz on Monday.

Detailing the cause of the cancelation, Mr Asante said it had nothing to do with finances because the company has a contract with MTN and still holds. He believes the event house should be commended for taking such a decision than putting up an unimpressive show out of ill preparation.

“…we don’t even print our tickets in Ghana. They take almost six weeks to get to Ghana. The plague is made outside Ghana. They need about eight weeks. I know you would ask that if we know we were going to do LAL Ball, why we didn’t get all these things done earlier. But you know these are done with sponsors’ money. For me, for an event company to be bold to tell you that, ‘it is one week to the event, I feel we are not prepared, let’s call it off and do it properly next year’, is something that Ghanaians should commend us for instead of following the voice of the people and putting across mediocrity because we are known for our standards,” he said.

“When our team met, we realised sponsors were ready, Conference Centre is ready but we are presently not [ready]… so many things were not right. We just had to call it off, repackage ourselves and come next year,” Mr Asante added.

The CEO asserted although people will be disappointed, they should bear with them.

“We know it’s a disappointment to our fans but for me, they should commend us for being bold to take this step next year,” he stated.

Imajin Advertising earlier denied speculations that the 5th edition of the event will not come off. Kobby Rana, a member of the team said they were hit with certain challenges which caused the delay.

The Legends and Legacy Ball, an event which seeks to celebrate the achievements and legacies of living music legends started four years ago. Highlife legends: Daddy Lumba, Abrantie Amakye Dede, A.B Crentsil and Kojo Antwi have been celebrated since its inception.
