South Africans were extremely exhilarated when news broke on Tuesday evening that the Canadian rapper, Drake, will be coming to South Africa to perform in three cities.
While the people of Mzansi were very excited that Drake would be showing up in South Africa, event organiser, George Avakian, has debunked the rumour, warning South Africans not to fall into the risk of purchasing tickets unless the Canadian rapper declares the news himself.
George said to his fans on social media:
Drake rumours are fake please make sure you don’t pay for any tickets, unless announced by Drake. Stay woke it’s 2020.
George Avakian confirmed that he had inquired from Drake’s management and reports had it that Drake had no show to be attended in South Africa.
The rumours of Drake coming to South Africa arose when a Nigerian entertainment website, Pulse, reported that in March, Drake was scheduled to perform in Ghana, Nigeria, and South Africa.
It is confirmed that Drake’s tour is genuine. However, the domain where tickets were being sold was created about a month ago.
When an investigation was made on the site, it was discovered that the site was offline. It sent web visitors to StubHub, an international ticketing site.
The Canadian rapper was not listed for 2020 in StubHub and other genuine international ticket services. We gathered that some hardcore Drake fans had already bought tickets to attend the event.
