Ouch. Brandy Performs To Empty Stadium
Ooof. This is rough. We love us some Brandy, so this stings.
R&B singer Brandy had been looking forward to playing to a 90,000-capacity arena in South Africa but was reportedly left sulking after just 40 people turned up.
The star had been booked to appear at the First National Bank Stadium in Johannesburg on Saturday as part of the celebrations of Nelson Mandela Sport and Culture Day, which included soccer and rugby games as well as live music.
However, Brandy was left playing to a tiny crowd of around 40 people in the 90,000-capacity arena after taking to the stage at the end of the event, and she reportedly performed just two songs before walking off.
Reports suggest Brandy's set was not properly advertised.
South African singer Kabomo, who was at the stadium, described the incident in a series of posts on Twitter, writing: "I have no words for what I just witnessed...
"Brandy performed to an empty stadium. With the stadium lights on. She sulked after two songs and walked off...
"It was late. People didn't know there was a concert after the games. No one knew Brandy was around. Maybe a 40 people audience (sic) ...
"There are more people there on a random Tuesday... Depressing."
The SHADE, Kabomo! The shaaade.
Keep your chin up, Brandy. We're gonna blast "Sittin' Up In My Room" and "Departed" in your honor today.
What do you think about Brandy's experience, Instincters? And how do you feel about the way she allegedly handled it?
