South Africans were over the moon after hearing that American superstar Kendrick Lamar was coming to the country to perform. Their excitement was quickly subdued by the ticket prices which start at R1500 and go up to R5000 for the VIP experience. While most could probably afford the R1.5k, these tickets have quickly run out with only a few left on sale.

In light of the costly tickets, many social media users shared hilarious posts about the stuff they would have to sell to afford them. One person even jokingly said that they would be selling their entire family.
