Fresh from his Whirlwind World Stadium Tour that saw him make history by becoming the first African artist to headline a stadium show in the USA, Burna Boy is bringing his show stopping ways back to South Africa.
The Grammy award winning Nigerian singer and songwriter will continue his Tour in South Africa Johannesburg at the FNB Stadium on September 23, 2023. Burna Boy has solidified his status as one of the greatest African stars after being awarded the Best International Act at the Black Entertainment Awards (BET) 2023.
Member of the Order of the Federal Republic plaque for his achievements in music. Earlier this year Rolling Stone ranked him number 197 on its list of the 200 greatest singers of all time. Burna Boy is a multi-award-winning artist whose music has taken over the world.
“African talent knows no bounds and Burna Boy is the best example of that. Not only was he the first Nigerian artist to perform at Madison Square Garden in New York. He continued on to headline and sell out stadium shows in both London and New York. This African giant’s footsteps speak for themselves and we are convinced he will be able to do the same at FNB stadium in September.”
Describing his music as Afro-fusion, blending the genres R&B, hip hop, dancehall, and reggae, Burna Boy continues to use his creativity to bring new sounds to the fore. His most recent song, Sitting on top of the World infuses the Darkchild and Brandy hit with his Afro fusion, making it an instant, refreshing hit.
Burna Boy’s Johannesburg show has been cancelled. His management issued a statement that the show has been ‘cancelled’ and ticketholders must be ‘refunded in full’.
Sadly, it is with great regret that we must inform you that, despite my team’s effort, the show in Johannesburg on Sept 23rd will be cancelled due to the inability of the promoters to fulfil their contractual, financial, production and technical obligations. Production vendors have apparently 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. We hereby state that all ticketing companies must ensure that everyone is refunded in full.
UPDATE (19/09): 13:15
According to a statement Ticketpro, the event was postponed due to low ticket sales and other other logistic issues.
Sorry if you was ready for the Burna Boy show this weekend!The stadium show which was set for 23 September 2023 at FNB Stadium, has been postponed to 16 December this year.
