Sonnie Badu has stated that O2 Arena is too small for him to organise a concert there looking at his large following.
He made this statement after some critics questioned why Ghanaian Gospel musicians have never performed at the venue following Shatta Wale’s recent concert.
Speaking on Accra FM, Sonnie said"I’ve been at the O2 arena before. O2 Arena is too small for me. London is my home. O2 Arena is small because it takes about 2,500. If I’m doing a concert, I need 5000 seated in London. I’ve done O2 Arena before and that place is too small for Sonnie Badu.
I’ve not just Ghana but all over Africa with me in London, Europe and all over the world. As a matter of fact if I say I’m doing a concert now it will be packed by Africans and Caribbeans.
O2 Arena takes over 20,000 fans but Indigo at the O2 where Shatta Wale and Sarkodie performed takes about 2,500 people so maybe Sonnie is talking about Indigo at the O2 but not O2 Arena which has the second-highest seating capacity of any indoor venue in the United Kingdom.
