Burna Boy has incurred the fury of his fans after canceling his ‘Love, Damini’ concert in the Netherlands.
The Afrobeats star was bid to perform at the 41,000-capacity Gelredome Arnhem Stadium on Saturday evening.
Concertgoers were said to have filled the 41,000-capacity stadium waiting for hours for Burna Boy to take the stage — before they received the shocking news that the show had been cancelled.
Announcing the cancelation, Burna Boy said the concert could not hold due to “a number of reasons”.
He, however, promised that a new date for the concert will be announced soon.
“Netherlands! I’m so excited to be here and I was so excited to see you all tonight. I am constantly humbled and in awe of the love and support I get from you all!” he wrote on Instagram.
“Thank you for coming and waiting just to see us. I will forever appreciate that.
“I’m hurt that I couldn’t see you tonight even though. I really wanted to. We want to make sure you get the best “love Damini” experience possible and that won’t have happened today for a number of reasons.
“My amazing team have been hard at work trying to salvage it but we couldn’t do it in time.
“I’ll be announcing a new date in a few hours so watch out for it!”
Some concertgoers, however, took to their social media pages to express displeasure with Burna Boy.
Here are what some users had to say:
Oh So Burna Boy refused to show up at 40K capacity sold out show in Netherlands??
He kept his fans waiting for over 5hours in the stadium only to be absent. This is Unbelievable ‼️
