South African fans of Solange Knowles have been left shattered by her announcement that she would no longer be headlining the Afropunk festival on New Year's Eve.
The "Don't Touch My Hair" singer broke the news on Instagram on Wednesday, sparking a social media frenzy.
But her fans were not having it! South Africans wanted to know why event organisers did not break the news, instead of leaving it up to the singer.
Seriously though, it's not very professional for this announcement to have come from Solange via an IG post 4 days prior. How long has Afropunk known this & why did they keep quiet? This announcement should have come from them— Third Force (@NalediMashishi) December 27, 2017

Would people buy tickets if Afropunk announced the Solange situation earlier? I guess we'll never know.— Ronald Mabe (@RonMabe) December 28, 2017
In the true black Twitter fashion, some still found some humour in the situation.
