Saturday 21st November which should have been the most memorable night “Ghetto Fabulous” with regards to the clubs existence in that it would see the host be hosted for the very time at his fabulous establishment was surround with havoc and heartache after weary crowds turned violent, it has been reported that the security team at the entrance began to charge entry fees at the point of admission when the rumor circulated that the entry will be free admission and after learning this vital piece of information the benevolent crowd hastily turned irate and pounced on to the gate at the entrance of the club and began to loot the beverages and beat up other unsuspecting patrons.

“I can’t even begin to tell you how much I spent. I had already paid rent and we opened on Friday, it has taken not only money but a lot of my time. I don’t know whether it is competitors around, I don’t know. I don’t know what to think anymore. That’s why we called it Ghetto Fabulous; we wanted a fabulous place in the ghetto.
