Deborah Cox and Musiq Soulchild headlined the ‘Deborah Cox and Musiq Soulchild Magic Music Sessions,’ a highly anticipated R&B concert held at the Grand Arena, Grandwest, Cape Town. The concert, unfortunately, suffered from poor organization, leading to a series of disappointing experiences for the attendees.


The concert took place on Thursday, 27 July. Soon the evening turned into a rollercoaster of emotions for the attendees. The show was scheduled to start at 6 pm, but the organizers pushed it back by an hour and a half. This left the fans, waiting anxiously reports IOL

As the clock ticked, the crowd grew restless and frustrated. Some fans were even left questioning if the show would go on at all. With sound checks echoing behind closed doors, the anticipation only intensified, but the delay took its toll on the audience’s mood.


The show kicked off with Ami Faku taking the stage, and she wowed the crowd with her soulful sounds. Yet, after her performance, unsettling darkness descended on the arena, and the fans were left waiting for nearly 20 minutes. The local favourite, Vusi Nova, eventually took the stage, bringing some much-needed energy and excitement to the event.
