Dlala Thukzin apologises after disappointing his fans in China
The South African musician ought to have his debut show in Shanghai, but his team members are unable to get their visas.
Dlala released a statement where he apologised and explained what led to his no-show.
“TO MY ESTEEMED FANS AND EVENT ORGANIZERS IN CHINA. IT IS WITH REGRET THAT I HAVE TO SHARE THE UNFORTUNATE NEWS. I AM UNABLE TO TRAVEL TO CHINA FOR MY DEBUT SHOW IN THE CITY OF SHANGHAI. I SUCCESSFULLY RECEIVED MY VISA YESTERDAY, HOWEVER, MY MANAGER AND ROAD MANAGER HAD THEIRS DECLINED BY THE EMBASSY,” he explained.
“IF IT WAS JUST A THUTHUKA ZINDLOVU AND NOT DLALA THUKZIN TRAVELING, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN EASIER FOR ME TO ACCEPT THE OUTCOME AND TRAVEL ALONE. I AM SINCERELY SORRY ABOUT THIS. I WAS REALLY EXCITED AND LOOKING FORWARD TO MEETING AND SHARE THE STAGE WITH MY PEOPLE OUT IN THE CITY OF SHANGHAI.”
The DJ says he will work with other event organisers to make the show happen.
“UNFORTUNATELY, SAFETY IS A HUGE CONCERN FOR ME. I REALLY COULDN’T FIGHT MY CONSCIENCE AND FLY SO MANY HOURS TO A COUNTRY I’VE NEVER BEEN TO ALL ALONE. THE EVENT ORGANIZERS AND MY MANAGEMENT TRIED ALL THE AVAILABLE POSSIBILITIES TO TRY AND MAKE THIS HAPPEN.”
” MY MANAGEMENT WILL WORK CLOSE WITH THE EVENT PROMOTERS TO TRY AND FIND AN ALTERNATIVE DATE TO MAKE UP FOR THIS, WE WILL MAKE IT OUR PRIORITY TO REAPPLY FOR THE VISAS AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE TO AVOID SUCH THINGS FROM HAPPENING. I KNOW HOW MUCH YOU GUYS HAVE SACRIFICED TO MAKE IT TO THE SHOW AND I REALLY APPRECIATE YOU SO MUCH. LOOKING FORWARD TO ANNOUNCING A NEW DATE AS SOON AS WE CAN.”
