But just like any other show side-shows did not miss out as the famous Kenyan boys band Hart the Band got themselves on the wrong side of the law.

The three member band was arrested by police officers minutes after Diamond Platinumz got on stage at the much hyped Koroga Festival.

They were forced to spend almost 12hrs in police custody while begging  the police that they were not guilty. The three were forced to stage their own Koroga Festival in Police custody as they could not get time to see how Diamond Platinumz is entertaining his fans.

According to the Hit Makers of the Song “Uliza Kiatu” they were involved in a car-chase with the police officers at the parking lot at Carnivore grounds before being arresred.

The boys went had to reveal that people who originate from Eastlands always never wait on the police officers and therefore they decided to run away.

“Please understand this, we had not done anything wrong but from where we are from- the streets of Kayoleleshwa- when we see the cops coming towards you ,it’s either you take a u-turn && run or wait up for them a and feel the wrath  we decided to go with the latter – ruuunnn!!! like in every great police /robber movie ,we got arrested this was when sh** got real  put in mind the fact that ,the whole essence of running is not to get caught” Captioned Hart the Band on the social Media.

The band went ahead to regret why they did not opt to wait for the police and have a one on one as they say communication is always key.

“I guess we didn’t get the memo  after getting arrested ,being thrown in jail ,spending almost 12hrs in a back _& forth trying to convince the cops that we didn’t run because we were in the wrong – we learnt a very important lesson  communication.” Wrote Hart The band on a long post

“So yesterday at koroga festival minutes after diamond ( @diamondplatinumz ) got on stage this happened we had a slight altercation with some police officers  it was like a movie we were being car-chased all round the parking lot by police officers left right and centre  for a second we felt like we I were in a fast & furious sequel .

The group went ahead to advice their follower that how you address someone and fisrt impression decide the  direction of your converstion.

“how you address someone at the first instant is key to deciding the direction that conversation will take #truth  whether or not you are the one on the right / wrong #trustus also, our reaction when the cops approached us brings the question that, if those who are supposed to protect you instill fear in you – how safe are we  forgive our manners ,hope you had a productive monday _& if not then remember tomorrow’s another day to better your craft _& yourself ♥♥♥ we h_♥rt you all in ways you can’t understand #jahblessings _& guidance.”
