South Africa is buzzing with discussions surrounding Burna Boy, triggered by the recent announcement of postponing his concert initially scheduled for Saturday, September 23rd. The event will now take place in December, and the primary reason cited for this change is the unexpectedly low ticket sales as reported by Briefly.
Burna Boy’s Concert Delayed to December:
South Africans are expressing a range of reactions to the news that Burna Boy’s highly-anticipated concert, initially slated for the upcoming weekend at the FNB Stadium, has been rescheduled for December.
A post shared on X, formerly known as Twitter, by @rapturehub_ shed light on the Grammy Award-winning Nigerian superstar’s challenge with ticket sales. It was noted that despite Burna Boy’s immense popularity, he struggled to fill the FNB Stadium, which holds a staggering 94,736 people. The post’s message was clear: “BURNA BOY CONCERT POSTPONED ⛔️Burna Boy’s Johannesburg concert at the FNB Stadium has been postponed due to allegedly low ticket sales.

Mzansi Celebrates the Postponement:
The news of Burna Boy’s show being postponed due to low ticket sales sparked excitement among South Africans. Many took this opportunity to draw comparisons with local rapper Cassper Nyovest, who achieved a historic milestone by filling the FNB Stadium in 2017.
The decision to delay Burna Boy’s concert has ignited discussions and contrasts between international and local artists, emphasising the significant impact of ticket sales on concert scheduling and success.
