After weeks of promo for the eagerly anticipated Durban leg of Cassper Nyovest and Nasty C’s ‘African Throne’ tour, fans were left disappointed when the two rap stars cancelled the show on Saturday evening.
The show, which featured performances from the likes of Zakwe, Duncan, Dream Team and Asvnte, had already begun and was nearing the duo's headline set when it was suddenly brought to a stop due to apparent sound and lighting issues due to the rain.
“Durban we really sorry that we weren't able to perform today,” posted Nasty C and Cassper Nyovest on their respective social media platforms. “The sound desk got damaged due to rain. After a number of attempts to try and recover the sound we had to make the tough decision of cancelling the show.”
They added that their team is looking to remedy the situation and that they’d keep fans posted about this. “Our team is working to see how to best remedy this. Thank you for your support and we will keep you posted. Again, we’re so sorry.”
While some fans were understanding that the cancellation was necessitated by technical issues due to the rain, many took to social media to express their disappointment and criticize the artists for the lack of communication during the evening.
“We are disappointed in nasty c. he must be arrested he robbed Durban of their money he did not pull up #exposehim #nastyc #wewantourmoneyback #africanthrone,” Tweeted @pearlwamella.
