Infusion magazine reported last Tuesday regarding the launch of White Nightclub in Jeddah featuring R&B icon Ne-Yo however, it looks like the Saudi expansion has been shut down within a day of opening.
White Jeddah shut down?
Last week, White nightclub filled our newsfeeds announcing its opening in Jeddah, and Ne-Yo, (‘Closer’ and ‘Sexy Love’) was booked in for the inaugural headline performance. However, all according to sources, the club was ordered to close its doors before Ne-Yo could even make it to the stage (due to licensing issues). One of the parties, ‘Project X’ was “in violation of the legal procedures and regulations in force and was not licensed by the Authority and was originally a license for the establishment of another activity.”
Ne-Yo went to social media to address the shutdown
Despite a ‘no-show’ by Ne-YO; he took to his Instagram to address the shutdown. Saying: “I don’t know what happened guys 🤷🏾♂️ Was excited to perform for you and en route to the venue I was told it had been shutdown. @whitejeddah_officialGuess we’ll try this again another time fellas. Much love to the fans. Sorry guys. #whitejeddah“
At the time of writing White Jeddah have not commented on the situation
