Dear community,

As many of you all know, the SASA Cultural Show is tomorrow, and our team has been working very hard to perfect the final details and make sure everything goes smoothly. Two days ago, the Cultural Show Committee was notified that Tiwa Savage would no longer be able to perform due to visa issues, leaving both parties distraught. However, as the saying goes, the show must go on, and we are excited to announce our new headliner is...WALE!

**We are expecting to reach capacity, so if you don't secure a ticket and arrive on time, we cannot guarantee you will be admitted. Once Dink is full, no more people will be let inside.**
