Angola: Brazilian Singer Belo Absent From Romantic Show

Luanda — The joint concert of Angolan and foreign ballad singers, set for 15,17 and 18 June in the provinces of Luanda and Huila, will take place with the absence of one of the most publicised artist for this event, the Brazilian singer Belo.

According to a note from the organisers, LS Republicano, the Brazilian singer was due to arrive in the country last Friday morning, which did not happen, and he could not be contacted.

"Until now we do not know the reason why the (Brazilian) musician is not coming for this show, which will mark the withdrawal from the stages of the Angolan singer Anselmo Ralph, for a six-month period", reads the note.

According to the note, this is the second time that the Brazilian musician causes financial damages to LS Republicano.

"Once again we condemn the unprofessional behaviour of Belo and his team", stresses the note.

The organisers also inform that they will request a reimbursement from the artist, as well as the respective fine.

In view of this situation, the organisers appeal to the public for understanding and assure that they are also open to give back the money to those citizens who might want to be refunded.

Anselmo Ralph will be absent from the Angolan stages due to the fact that he will be fulfilling an agenda outside the African continent.
