Police shut down Shina Peters show in US
Sept. 06, 2010 (www.africanexaminer.com)
Afro Juju Creator, Sir
Shina Peters was closed to
tears over the weekend as
Prince Georges County
police officers shut down
his show at the Royal
Prestige Hall, Largo in the
state of Maryland, USA.
Trouble started at around
2 am, an hour after he had
started performing, when
large numbers of PG
police officers stormed the
venue requesting from the
organizers the liquor
license for the event.
The organizers who had already started selling alcoholic
beverages at the time could not produce the license claiming
they didn’t know they needed one.
Following inability to produce the liquor license, the police said
they had no option other than to shut down the venue.
They dispersed everyone in the Hall, and within minutes the hall
became empty. SSP's fans were outraged at the turn of events
threatening to sue the organizers of the show.
However, Sir shina Peters is expected to stage more shows
before he departs the state of Maryland. African Examiner
gathered that the show that was shut down was a sold out.

Well it's a sorry case for the afro juju creator. Nevertheless, it's a
shame for the organiser on their illegal show. Or they are
ignorant of what it takes to launch alcoholic beverage without a
liquor permit in such a state. SHAME!
"they didn’t know they needed one", ignorance is no excuse in
law, my brodas or sisters organisers
dare best, lagos
thank God it is not from the angle that the show wasnt a sold
out....the organizers should be penalised ssp carrryyyy gooooo

comments = Very unfortunate bro Peter. Can we translate this
just act to our society where people respect law not where law
respects people. Your personality means nothing once you
disobeys the law. Hope u will learn.
