DID Brandy play to a stadium of 89,960 empty seats?
That’s what the Twitterverse is saying after reports the singer performed to just 40 people in a 90,000 capacity arena at the Mandela Sports and Culture Day in South Africa on Saturday.
The American R&B star was the surprise guest at the FNB stadium in Soweto – the only problem was that no-one knew she was playing.
Tens of thousands of people had therefore left the arena before she arrived on stage.
“Brandy [just] 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.
“There are more people there on a random Tuesday… Depressing.”
Added @My2_Melo: “I gave up the min I saw the empty stadium. Brandy performing for the chairs!”
