'Scala’ was a special moment - King Promise reminisces

The entire world of entertainment and the rest of other sectors is on a screeching halt with the mass onset and threat presented by the coronavirus.

With a ton of time and no physical social interactions, we have been burdened to find other things to consistently fill our time.

Award-winning Ghanaian singer King Promise is using his time to reminisce about Scala.

King Promise, who is currently on self-quarantine has halted most of his events in Europe due to the virus, after his major show in the UK earlier this month at the famous Scala live event center in London is not only watching the highlights of the remarkable show, but he is apparently taking a walk down memory lane as well.

In a phone interview with the artiste, he recalled that “I have done several concerts and festivals in the UK but never headlined. So after the album dropped, I only felt it was right to have my first major headline in the UK since there’s been a lot of support from there as well".

“I absolutely did enjoy myself. There’s nothing I would change about the day. From the fans' interaction, the band, and the DJ killing it, and the vibes were all just perfect.”

He also added that he was overwhelmed when he saw the crowd chanting his name and singing along every song he performed, “As usual, I had the butterflies in my belly but as soon as I got on stage, all of that changed. It was a big moment for me and I had been dreaming about the day. It was a special moment for me.”

According to him, it was so satisfying event, “The experience, the vibes with the fans and the fact that I actually really enjoyed myself as much as the fans made it a successful show. I already knew we had almost sold out days before the show but walking onto the stage with all the lights on and the auditorium full is a moment I will cherish for life.

“If I am ever going to do a show in the UK, I will still use the same strategy and team, I’ll change nothing. I will go hard on promotions, prepare very well and the only change will be a bigger venue.”

King Promise currently featured on Aisha’s single dubbed ‘Lowkey’.
