Fans of Beyoncé have been speculating for a few days on whether she is already in the country and where she could be.
JOHANNESBURG - The second December is just days away and the Beehive (the name for Beyoncé fans) is getting in formation to see their favourite superstar Beyoncé at the Global Citizen Festival South Africa.
The concert takes place this Sunday at the FNB Stadium, Johannesburg. This will be the first time that Beyoncé and her husband Jay-Z will be performing in the country.
They will share the stage with fellow international acts, Ed Sheeran, Usher, Pharell Williams, Chris Martin, as well as African musicians Wizkid, D'Banj, Sho Madjozi, Cassper Nyovest and Tiwa Savage.
DJ Black Coffee was added as an additional act on Monday morning.
