Taking to Twitter to react to the news, many asked themselves why SA hip-hop stars weren’t selected as the opening act. 

“Not being jealous. But we’ve got too many talented Mzansi hip-hop artists. Why are we busy cheering for Andile Mpisane,” questioned one tweep. 

“How the hell did that come about?” wrote another tweep.
