Busta Rhymes Bails Out on South African Bay Summer Concert
Busta Rhymes angered fans over the weekend, by skipping out on a performance at the Bay Summer Concert in South Africa’s newly completed Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.
According to Port Elizabeth’s Weekend Post, Busta was scheduled to headline the event last Sunday morning (November 30) but instead showed up hours late to announce that he would be playing at another club.
“We're getting ready to go to La Dee Da’s,” he said. “That’s where we’re gonna have the show at. So, all of you people up there, go to La Dee Da’s, that’s where we’re gonna perform at.” [Watch video here].
Although concertgoers were allowed entrance into the new venue in Bethelsdorp for free, only 500 showed up as opposed to the 2,300 seats reserved at the stadium.
Despite the meager turnout, the smaller venue was reportedly filled to capacity. Bussa Buss hit up his twitter account to give his reaction to the show. “Now that we officially smashed club La Dee Da's in Port Elizabeth, S. Africa now we r off 2 Uzbekistan 2 tear that down 2...Let's get it!!!”
