Pop star Brandy "sulked" and reportedly stormed off stage after just two songs when only 40 people showed up to watch her perform in a 90,000 seat stadium.

Fact magazine reported the singer was booked to perform in South Africa as part of the Nelson Mandela Sport and Culture Day at FNB Stadium in Johannesburg.

But fans reportedly didn't know Brandy was performing, and left before she arrived on stage.

Singer Kabomo tweeted: "Brandy performed to an empty stadium. With the stadium lights on. She sulked after two songs and walked off.


NME.com reported he later said: "People didn't know there was a concert after the games. No one knew Brandy was around. Maybe a 40 people audience."

Brandy has released six albums since 1994, including the No. 1 single The Boy Is Mine.
