Burna Boy, the renowned Afrobeat singer from Nigeria, has decided to cancel his much-anticipated concert in South Africa.
The event was initially planned to take place at the FNB stadium in Johannesburg on the 23rd of September, 2023.
In a statement released by his management team on Tuesday, Burna Boy explained that the concert had to be called off due to the failure of the promoters to fulfill their commitments.
While apologising to his fans, the management assured that all tickets would be refunded.
“Sadly, it is with great regret that we must inform you that despite my team’s effort, the show on September 23rd, in Johannesburg will be canceled over the inability of the promoters to fulfill their contractual, production, financial and technical obligations.
“Production vendors have still not been paid and as such, it is evident at this point that the agreed production standard needed for this venue size can’t be achieved.
“Deepest apologies to all fans, all ticketing companies must ensure that it is refunded in full. Looking forward to seeing you all soon,” it said.
