Burna Boy delays Johannesburg show amid row

Nigerian artist Burna Boy has postponed a live concert scheduled for this weekend in Johannesburg, South Africa.

The show, which was booked at the 90,000-capacity FNB Stadium will now be held on 16 December, the event’s ticketing agency said.

Ticket Pro said the gig was being delayed because of a “lack of ticket” sales, among other reasons.

But Burna Boy’s management company, Spaceship, is quoted by Nigerian media as blaming the concert’s promoters for not fulfilling their “contractual, financial, production and technical obligations”.

It said that the ticketing companies must ensure that ticketholders are fully refunded.

“Sadly, it is with great regret that we must inform you that, despite my team’s effort, the show in Johannesburg… will be cancelled,” the Punch newspaper quotes the management company as saying in a statement.

“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 cannot be achieved,” it adds.

“Deepest apologies to all fans, looking forward to seeing you all soon,” it added.
