Kayse Connect, the organisers of the Burna Boy Harare Concert, have said that they are contemplating postponing the show over concerns of the coronavirus pandemic.
The Nigerian superstar was expected to perform at Hellenic Sports Club alongside Jah Prayzah, Winky D, Ammara Brown and Asaph on April 17. In a statement, Kayse Connect said:
As Kayse Connect, we acknowledge the Coronavirus which has affected livelihoods and taken lives. We put health and safety first above all else and as such, we’re in constant communication with all stakeholders involved.
We’ll announce soon should there be any changes to the position of the concert date. Tickets are still on sale.
Although Zimbabwe has not registered a single case of the virus, the rise in the number of affected people in neighbouring South Africa has inculcated great fear in members of the public.
Authorities are also mulling plans to ban all public gatherings which they fear may result in the spread of the virus.
