Patrons of the 2023 BhimConcert did more than just enjoy themselves last night at the Accra Sports Stadium.

On Friday, dancehall artiste Stonebwoy held his annual musical concert dubbed BhimConcert 2023, at the Accra Sports Stadium. The event was well attended as the 40,000 seater stadium was packed to the rafters.

However, things got out of hand when some of the patrons deliberately destroyed the football pitch.

In a video that has since gone viral, motor riders were seen literally spinning their bikes on the uncovered playing surface during the musical concert on Friday night.

The National Sports Authority (NSA), managers of the facility, have declared it unavailable for sports events in the month of December.

It has however been released for music concerts.

The first of those was a gospel concert that featured musicians such as Joe Mettle and Nigeria’s Nathaniel Bassey.

In November the NSA informed football clubs that the Accra Sports Stadium would not be rented out for sporting activities.
The decision, according to the NSA, was to make the facility available for entertainment programs to generate revenue.

For many years now the NSA has denied access to the venue during the month of December.

Instead, the sports facility is rented out to churches, banks, and events organisers for various entertainment and religious programs.
