Sedote Nwachukwu, one of the men behind the failed Burna Boy concert in Johannesburg, has fled South Africa, apparently on the advice of his lawyers.

According to SOWETAN LIVE, Nwachukwu is accused of stealing R10 million (about $500,000) from Ternary Media Group, the company promoting the concert. The event was scheduled for Saturday at FNB Stadium but was postponed a few days before.

Nwachukwu’s business partner, Gregory Wings, opened a fraud case against him at the Sandton Police Station. Gauteng provincial police spokesperson Brigadier Brenda Moridili confirmed a matter was being investigated.

Thousands of tickets have been sold for the concert, but it is unclear whether concertgoers will be refunded.

Nwachukwu denied the allegations, accusing Wings of stealing money from the concert. He says he was removed as CEO of Ternary Media Group after refusing to go along with Wings’ fraudulent plans.

Billetprothe company that sold tickets for the concert says it is working on a customer refund plan.

Burna Boy was scheduled to perform at FNB Stadium on Saturday, but the concert was postponed due to cheating allegations. It is not known exactly when the concert will take place.

The scandal overshadowed Burna Boy’s reputation in South Africa. The Nigerian singer is a popular artist in the country, but many fans are now questioning his judgment in associating himself with Nwachukwu.

It remains to be seen whether Burna Boy can save his reputation in South Africa. Fans and industry insiders will be closely watching the results of the fraud investigation.
