Eight people are reportedly in hospital with four in critical condition after a crowd broke into Asake‘s concert in Brixton, London.
The Nigerian singer had a show at the 4900-capacity O2 Academy in Brixton following the release of ‘Mr. Money With The Vibe’, his debut album.
On Thursday night, videos surfaced on social media platforms showing concertgoers locked outside the venue in freezing temperatures.
In one of the footage, a large number of people were seen trying to force their way into the venue of Asake’s concert.
The concert, it is understood, was eventually cancelled part-way after the crowd breached the doors and security.
Sky News quoted The Met Police as saying the ambulance service and fire brigade were called at 9:30 pm.
It was revealed that eight persons were taken to hospital, with four still in critical condition due to injuries in the stampede.
Speaking on the incident, Ade Adelekan, an officer, was quoted as describing the stampede as “extremely distressing”.
“This is an extremely upsetting incident that has left four people critically ill in the hospital. A police investigation has been launched, and it will be as thorough and as forensic as necessary to establish what happened,” he said.
“The scene will be examined by specialist officers. CCTV will be viewed. Every witness that we can make contact with will be spoken to and all other lines of inquiry will be followed.
“Officers are remaining in the area to provide reassurance to the local community in and around Brixton.”

How Peter Obi was attacked after rally in Katsina – LP Campaign
The presidential campaign council of the Labour Party (LP) says Peter Obi, its candidate, was attacked in Katsina state.
In a statement by Diran Onifade, its head of media, the campaign council said Obi’s car was attacked by hoodlums when he was on his way to the airport after a rally in the state.
“Our candidate had met with women in a townhall and then held a hugely successful rally at the Muhammad Dikko Stadium,” the statement reads.
“However, on his way to the airport, hoodlums attacked the car our candidate was riding in with heavy stones from his driver’s side, causing substantial damage to the vehicle.
“To the glory of God, Mr Obi and other occupants of the car were unhurt.
“Subsequently, another set of thugs also threw stones outside the stadium which damaged several vehicles including that of our official stage crew.”
The campaign council alleged that the attacks may have been orchestrated by “desperate politicians” over Obi’s outing in the state.
It condemned the attacks and called on security agencies to investigate the incident and prevent future occurrences.
“The two incidents taken together make us suspect that the attacks may have been premeditated at the behest of desperate polititicians who had been deluding themselves with the false claim that they had the northwest locked up but are now shocked by the show of force of the Obidient movement in the region,” the LP campaign added.
“While thanking the good people of Katsina who came out en masse to support our campaign yesterday, we call on security agencies to investigate this matter to forestall future occurrences.”
