Sarkodie’s virtual concert, “Black Love” has shut down the internet after the designated site for streaming crashed due to overwhelming traffic.
The pre-recorded show was billed to go live on Sunday, August 16, 2020, on Ceek, an online streaming
website for virtual shows. However, a few minutes into airing the show, the website crashed. The
platform took to take to social media to apologize to fans for the inconvenience.
They stated that the ‘Black Love’ virtual concert traffic caused their platform to shut down. “#SarkNation
shut the web down. Due to overwhelming traffic, we are having some technical issues. Please standby we
are working to resolve this. 1.5 million at once with more coming.”
In another tweet, they assured that their team is working to resolve the technical challenge. A screenshot
shared by Ceek shows that over 1 million people in Ghana were online to watch the concert, with
hundreds of people from other countries like Germany, Spain, and The United Kingdom.
