Due to a security threat that occurred on Saturday night, Berita was unable to complete her set at the Kwanokuthula Stadium in Plettenberg Bay.

During her performance, a man with a machete made his way on stage and started cutting sound cables before proceeding to follow Berita with the knife.

The Thandolwethu hitmaker managed to escape unharmed.

"It was one of the scariest incidents I have experienced at a show. I was with Berita and we are both grateful to have escaped alive and unharmed. We regret that Berita was unable to complete her set as the crowd in attendance were extremely excited to see her perform and many travelled from far to witness the African Jewel live,” expressed Ninel Musson, Director at Vth Season.

Though in shock, Berita wanted to go back and complete her set to the thousands of fans who came out, but was told it was not safe to do so. 

The singer is reportedly shattered at the turn of events and was looking forward to giving a spectacular performance of her latest album to fans from Cape Town and the Eastern Cape.

Previous communication by Berita on social media indicated that the man had been arrested, but it is unfortunately not the case and he is still at large. It is alleged that the man was seemingly deranged.
