After two fantastic nights done and dusted, the New Fuji star sadly had to attend his third night at the 5,000 capacity Brixton Academy 02 after around a thousand people forced their way inside. According to eyewitness reports, this development occurred shortly after Asake began performing on stage. Authorities also stated that four party-goers are currently in critical condition in hospital after police were unable to hold back the crowd of about 3,000.

Asake had previously performed twice on the show’s venue to rave reviews. However, showgoers speculate that the stampede was caused by Asake fans who infiltrated the venue with fake tickets, preventing a large number of legitimate ticket holders from entering and prompting the stranded crowd to desperate measures.
