For fans hopeful for a Beyonce performance this weekend in Ghana, it’s bad news.
Because, it’s official: Queen Bey will not be taking to the stage.
Full story below…
For months, rumors have swirled about the superstar songstress performing during Year of the Return festivities in Accra. Which, for those not in the know, is an initiative to draw Black folk in the Western world and beyond back to the continent in recognition of it being 400 years since the first slave arrived in Virginia.
And the speculation intensified when Bey dropped Afrobeats-inspired project ‘The Gift’ – featuring many artists from the diaspora.
With many of said acts congregating this weekend at the AfroNation festival in Accra, anticipation for Bey reached fever pitch.
However, her longtime publicist has concretely denied any such showing:
It’s been over a year since her last known performance and there’s no word yet on when Mrs Carter will be back on-stage.
What is for sure is that whenever it is, the masses are sure to be in formation to see the Queen do what she does best!
