Brandy's Empty Concert Rumor Shut Down

I really have to learn to not take things so personally when it comes to Brandy. I think in this situation, I just hate to see so many "credible" and "mainstream" sources reporting a bogus or shady story, when the facts are so simple..

Many online sources jumped at the opportunity to say that Brandy had travelled all the way to S. Africa for her concert, and only about 40 people were there. They go on to say that she stormed off of the stage in embarrassment because the stadium sat about 90k.

While some bits and pieces of this story are accurate, a huge portion of the tale was left untold. Thanks to a rep from Brandy's camp, we are getting exactly what went down in S. Africa. Brandy has been very busy lately, in the studio with the likes of Chris Brown, and she recently announced that she will be headlining London's Musicalize on the 24th of September at Indigo2.. so the reach that she can't get a stage in this rumor is just ridiculous.

 Here's what the rep released to the YBF:

She was booked at the last minute to fly to South Africa to support a "cause"--not a concert. It was a cause that honored "Mr. Nelson Mandela" and there was other performers on the bill besides Brandy. She attended because she wanted to support the foundation and Mr. Mandela...a man who has changed history.

This whole story has been blown out of proportion and Brandy has sold out shows across the world including South Africa before.
So, please be careful again, what you believe on blogs and such. Even the credible one's are reaching for hits- and using negativity to do it. I'm glad her team cleared this up. Brandy is an artist that millions love to witness! Why someone would take a positive effort and make it seem so bad is beyond me.
