It seems ongoing wrangles around the ownership and operation of the popular and colourful Sarakasi Dome led to event organisers putting off events for the better part of last year.

According to insiders, there has been infighting for the dome, which has led to the premier monthly show ‘Hip Hop Hookup’ taking an indefinite break.

“The bigwigs are fighting over the dome… at one time you hear it’s been sold, the next day the claims are denied,” said our source.

“Eventually, ‘Hip Hop Hookup’ took a break because the uncertainty was killing the vibe. We are looking for a new venue, so are other organizers who preferred the dome for its proximity to town and because it is spacious.”
