Present at the launch was Fancy Gadam and other groups, however, it's not being established yet, what may have caused the clash, but, some allege it may have been triggered by a rivalry between the music groups.

Reports indicate, some unknown men numbering about six arrived at the scene of the violence and raided the house of the music promoter, and stabbing several people in the process.

The men were all armed with machetes and said to have come from a chief’s palace in Sagnarigu. Three people were badly injured in the mass stabbing and are being treated at a hospital in Tamale. Properties belonging to the entertainment promoter at his residence including chairs and tables were destroyed in the violence.

The men threatened to burn the house of the “game boy” who fled into hiding. They repeatedly demanded Kofi Bohama “come out” of the room amidst hammering properties with their weapons.

Guests of the event watched the attack as there was little they could do to stop it. Others tried to call the police with their mobile phones but were unsuccessful until the attackers left the scene. The men also seized and took away several motorbikes.
