Reggae veteran singer Luciano was stoned in Nigeria over the weekend while performing at the 2011 Rivers State Carnival “CARNIRIV” held at Liberation Stadium on Christmas Eve.
According to reports, Luciano was invited to perform at the annual event by the consultant handling the cultural festival. Shortly into his set, patrons began hurling bottles on the stage after complaining about his style of reggae music.
Shocked at what was happening, Luciano paused and asked the crowd, “What’s happening? You don’t want me?”
“I am a messenger of God. Don’t you want the message? I was in Ethiopia, they (Ethiopians) received me. I was in Gambia, they received me. Why won’t you receive your brother?,” he added.
Despite his plea more bottles was hurled at him before he left the stage.
