The incident occurred midway through Makhadzi‘s electrifying performance. A video shared by TechMag TV captured the moment when someone in the crowd hit her with the bottle.
The Ghanama hitmaker had been captivating the crowd with her hit tracks when, just five minutes into her performance, someone from the audience tossed a bottle, prompting her to end the show abruptly.
Addressing the audience before leaving the stage, Makhadzi firmly stated,
“No, you can’t throw bottles here. No, you can’t do that. Thank you.”

Unfortunately, this was not the first time Makhadzi had to cut short a performance due to chaos.
She faced a similar situation in April this year at the Manicaland Motoring Club in Zimbabwe.
During that event, some individuals in the crowd began throwing bottles onto the stage while she was performing.
In the video that went viral, bottles of various sizes and shapes can be seen being hurled toward the stage, creating a dangerous situation for both the performers and the audience.
As the situation escalated and turned chaotic, Makhadzi was forced to abruptly end her set to ensure the safety of herself and her band.
