R&B star Chris Brown.

Chris Brown's Uganda concert has been postponed to March 2013. The Don't Wake Me Up singer, who was also rumored, to perform in Kenya  has been fully paid though his manager does not want him to fly on Christmas eve.

Chris Brown is still serving his five-year probation for having beaten his ex-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009. His brutal attack on Rihanna has led to angry protesters trying to spurn his concerts with the latest incident being the Guyana show that was to take place on December 26, 2012.

Women activists made it clear that he was not welcome, so he became uncomfortable and cancelled it. He is also said to be back with Rihanna despite it all.
