The Nigerian superstar was set to perform in Pretoria and Cape Town on Saturday and Sunday.

In a statement, Phambili Media SA says the decision to cancel the artists appearance was made after he received threats of violence.

The pop sensation came under fire for saying he never wants to set foot in South Africa following the attacks on foreign nationals, only to announce a concert a month later.

The production company claim they are fearing for their safety as there been no government intervention.

“The decision to cancel the Africans Unite Concert comes after the call from the Tshwane Entertainment Collective to boycott the Africans Unite concert in Tshwane.

“Phambili Media and Play Network Africa were prompted to take the threats and warnings seriously, as the safety of all artists and attendees could not be guaranteed,”
