Prince Georges County police officersÂ in the United States of America disrupted a showÂ where Afro Juju Creator, SirÂ Shina Peters, was performing at the weekend.
According to the African Examiner, an online blogger,Â Shina Peters was close to tears whenÂ the cops stormed the venue of the gig, Royal
Prestige Hall, Largo in theÂ state of Maryland, and stopped the show.
Reports have it that trouble started at around 2 a.m., an hour after he had startedÂ performing, when a large number of
police officers stormed the venue requesting from the organizers the liquor license for theÂ event.
The organizers, who had already started selling alcoholic beverages at the time, could notÂ produce the license claiming they didnâ€™t know they needed one.
Following inability to produce the liquor license, the police saidÂ they had no option otherÂ than to shut down the venue.
They dispersed everyone in the Hall, and within minutes the hallÂ became empty. SSPâ€™s fansÂ were outraged at the turn of eventsÂ threatening to sue the organizers of the show.
However, Sir Shina Peters is expected to stage more shows before he departs the state ofÂ Maryland.
African Examiner gathered that the show that was shut down was a sold out.
