Brandy Norwood attempted to surprise fans with a concert following this past weekend's South African celebration of Mandela Sports and Culture Day, but instead, she ended up performing to an arena of empty seats.
In an attempt to keep the concert a secret up until show time, only an estimated 40 people ended up sticking around though the stadium can hold up to 90,000, multiple reports claim. Brandy, 34, reportedly sang a few songs before walking off stage.
Here are some tweets from an audience member who was at the event:
@SizweDhlomo Brandy performed to an empty stadium. With the stadium lights on. She sulked after two songs and walked off.— Kabomo (@Kabomo) August 17, 2013
I have no words for what I just witnessed.— Kabomo (@Kabomo) August 17, 2013
Regardless of the small turnout, Brandy will be returning to South Africa to perform on Sept. 24, 2013.
