Asake Brixton Concert Crush

On Thursday night, the musician had a show at the 4900-capacity venue where he performed ‘Mr. Money With The Vibe’, his debut album.

The concert was, however, cancelled part-way after the crowd breached the doors and security, leaving some of the fans injured.

Police said eight people have been taken to hospital, with four in a critical condition, after finding “a number of people with injuries believed to have been caused by crushing” at Asake ‘s last scheduled gig in the U.K.

BBC quoted one of the crush victims said: “I couldn’t breathe and I completely passed out. I thought I was dead.”

The woman, who was taken to hospital with suspected internal bleeding, said: “I took my last breath and I could not get any more oxygen. I was so scared.”

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.

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.”
