R&B singer Brandy found herself performing to a near-empty stadium after concert-goers left ahead of her spot at a concert at the FNB stadium in Soweto on Saturday for Mandela Sports And Culture Day.
Brandy was meant to give a surprise performance but fans just could not wait. The annoyed singer walked offstage after two songs
The stadium holds up to 90,000 people and had been packed throughout the day in celebration of the life of former president Nelson Mandela.
But with the packed schedule almost finished it emptied out before Brandy made her big entrance. While Brandy is popular in the country, her surprise performance was not revealed to the fans - who left thinking the day was over.
'Brandy performed to an empty stadium. With the stadium lights on,' tweeted South African musician, Kabomo.
'People didn't know there was a concert after the games. No one knew Brandy was around. Maybe a 40 people audience... She sulked after two songs and walked off.'
Brandy's publicist could not be reached for comment.
