Mzansi’s Social Media was abuzz this Tuesday. Claims that Canadian rapper Drake was coming to South Africa had fans excited at the chance to attend his concerts.
According to SA Hip Hop Mag, ‘Champagne Papi’ was coming in March. The superstar reportedly had perfomances lined up for Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town.
The expensive ticket prizes weren’t going to stop eager fans. With VIP Premier going for as much as R18 000, they were willing to do anything for the once in a lifetime experience.
According to a Twitter user who did some digging, the domain that was selling tickets was only created in December of 2019. There was also no mention of concerts in the country in Drake’s Social Media and website.
Events organizer George Avakian confirmed that the rumours are fake on Twitter with a screenshot from Drake denying any knowledge of the concerts.
Drake rumors are fake please make sure you don’t pay for any tickets, unless announced by Drake. Stay woke it’s 2020. pic.twitter.com/ecC0zIvPOJ— Avakian of Earth (@GeorgeAvakian) January 14, 2020
