United Kingdom (UK) rapper Giggs was meant to highlight the Rocking the Daisies event in October but he surprisingly pulled out at the last minute.

Rocking The Daisies is a three-day music event which is held from 4 to 6 October 2019. The event will be hosted at the Cloof Wine Estate in Darling, Western Cape.

Rocking the Daisies took to their social media accounts hours before the first day of the event to reveal that the UK rapper couldn’t make it. The event announced the news writing:

“Due to circumstances beyond our control, @officialgiggs will no longer be performing at #CANDOITC19 & #CANDOxRTD. All parties have expressed their disappointment and hope that we can make it happen in the near future.”

No explanation given for the rapper pulling out

The event was quick to inform festival goers that all their other artists had “arrived safely.” An explanation wasn’t given for the sudden change.

The rapper also hasn’t explained why he wasn’t coming to South Africa anymore. Unsurprisingly, his fans were not pleased with the last minute drop.

Giggs fans upset by last minute withdrawal

A number of Giggs’ fans took to the comments sections of Rocking the Daisies social media accounts and expressed their disappointment that he wouldn’t be performing on 5 October 2019 anymore.

Several people noted how the announcement being made the night before the event was disrespectful to them. Others felt the event wasn’t worth it anymore without the singer.

A couple of attendees wanted to know who would be replacing the rapper. Some people who had attended the festival before were not surprised that the event had last minute cancellations.

At the time of publication, Rocking the Daisies hadn’t offered any refunds for those who had specifically bought tickets to see Giggs. They were also not responding to fan comments.

IAMDBB Rocking the Daisies controversy

Another UK artist who was supposed to headline the festival was IAMDDB. The festival also announced her participation in June 2019.

Rumours say she couldn’t make it because of Visa issues. Her name also doesn’t appear on Rocking the Daisies’ poster line-up but it still features on their website.

Having two major and international artists pull out from the event doesn’t look good for the festival. Hopefully, it’s something they will look into and address accordingly.
