Grammy-award-winning Nigerian artiste Damini Ogulu, aka Burna Boy, has canceled his highly anticipated live concert due to the promoters’ inability to fulfill their contractual obligations.
Burna’s live concert was scheduled for September 23, at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Buran’s statement is coming after Ticketing company, Ticket Pro, announced Wednesday that the highly anticipated show, is being postponed due to a ‘lack of ticket’ sales, among other reasons.
“We regret to announce the postponement of the highly anticipated Burna Boy concert scheduled to take place at FNB Stadium, Johannesburg on 23 September 2023.
“The concert will now take place on the 16th of December 2023.
“This decision was not made lightly by the promoter and comes as a result of careful consideration and assessment of various factors, including the lack of ticket sales,” read the statement by Ticket Pro.
Spaceship Management, Burna’s management company, has since reacted to this claim by Ticket Pro, stating the concert promoters’ Ternary Media Group’s failure to fulfill their financial, production, and technical obligations to the team.
“Sadly, it is with great regret that we must inform you that despite my team’s effort, the show in Johannesburg on September 23rd, will be canceled due to the inability of the promoters to fulfill their contractual, financial, production, 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 not be achieved.
“We hereby state that all ticketing companies must ensure that is refunded in full.
“Deepest apologies to all fans, looking forward to seeing you all soon,” their statement read.
