Musiq Soulchild Gig Postponed

R&B and soul music lovers will have to wait a bit longer to see the talented Musiq Soulchild live in concert.

This follows an announcement by show organisers LabelMonte Entertainment that the event has been postponed until further notice due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The award-winning R&B artist was scheduled to perform in the City of Roses on April 4.

The announcement by LabelMonte follows President Cyril Ramaphosa’s declaration of a national state of disaster following the number of confirmed Covid-19 cases that had risen to 116 by Wednesday.

The American singer was set to perform in the Free State for the first time, alongside award-winning musos Preston ”Presss” Sihlangu, Dudu DeVocalist , and DJ Shaxe.

“We have postponed the show until further notice. We should all take precautions and be safe. The Coronavirus has affected the whole world and its economy,” said Monte Modisenyane, director of the entertainment company.  

The show is now likely to take place either in August or September.

“Once the dust has settled we will announce the date,” Modisenyane said, urging fans to continue buying their tickets for “the once in a lifetime concert”.

He explained the label needed to adhere to the terms and conditions outlined by the President.  

The concert was set to coincide with the company’s 10-year celebration this year.
