Windhoek - The Namibian edition of Burna Boy's African Giant Tour has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

This comes after President Hage Geingob announced the suspension of all large gatherings for 30 days, amongst other preventive measures against the disease.

The concert was scheduled to take place on 4 April at the Independence Stadium in Windhoek. It was supposed to one of his Southern Africa gigs before going to rock the crowd in Zimbabwe at a later date.

 

It was not clear whether the Zimbabwean tour will take place, but that country’s President Emmerson Mnangagwa on Tuesday declared a state of disaster due to the coronavirus and banned gatherings of more than 100 people, including weddings and church meetings.

The Southern Africa region, like the rest of the world, is also reeling with the corona virus pandemic which has caused havoc across the world, affecting business, sports, the arts and social gatherings.

In Windhoek, the Grammy award nominated Nigerian singer was expected to perform alongside an array of local Namibian artists which include Gazza, King Tee Dee, Taylor Jaye, KP Illest, One Blood and DJ Ambizzy, amongst others.

Play Network Africa, in partnership with Mindscape Events Namibia, the event organisers, said the new date of the concert will be announced in due course after consultations with all stakeholders involved.

"Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you at the show at a date to be announced. Our prayers go out to the Namibian nation 'Land of The Brave' and the entire global community during this challenging time," Play Network Africa said in a statement noted.

The public who purchased tickets have been assured that their tickets will remain valid for the rescheduled date and refunds will be issued to those who will be unable to attend.
