ATLANTA, GA – Rod Wave was set to perform at Morris Brown College for a concert on Saturday (October 31) — but the stage had other plans.
Flocked by a massive crew behind him, the Florida-bred singer entered the auditorium of the Historically Black College and University to a thunderous ovation from fans in attendance. Seconds later, the stage buckled and collapsed, prompting Rod to stumble as others behind him fell in the newly created crater.
Rod was a good sport about the fall, sharing video to his Instagram account and writing, “PIMP DOWN! I REPEAT PIMP DOWN!”
No injuries have been reported after the stage collapse, but many touted the age of Morris Brown and a lack of funding to explain for the stage implosion.
The historically black college was founded in 1881 and at its peak had more than 2,700 students. Due to a loss of accreditation in 2002, attendance has dwindled and currently, the school has 53 students enrolled.
