After years of not appearing on Sting, veteran female artiste Tanya Stephens graced the annual event’s stage on December 26, 2023, only to be left with disappointment.
Stephens spoke out about how she felt about Sting and its promoters on social media, stating, “I would be disappointed in Isaiah Laing if this was the first time…”
The It’s A Pity singer also claimed that she and other artistes were told by Laing that he would be following up with them after the show (presumably for money matters) but according to Stephens, “We’re still waiting for him to contact us “tomorrow” (Dec 27th, 2023).”
She mentioned that Laing’s behaviour was deplorable and cited his actions as a reason why she had previously avoided performing at the event.
Stephens also pointed out that if not for the “younger generation” providing a “fall guy” for the failure of Sting 2023, the promoters would have had to deal with the backlash and fallout of a flopped event of their own making.
In closing, Stephens said, “Big up yourself…especially Mr Isaiah Laing. Where others have deteriorated you have actually remained consistent. As good as you have EVER been!”
