    Brandy speaks onstage at the "VH1 Divas" show held at The Shrine Auditorium on December 16, 2012 in Los Angeles, California.

    Brandy's last performance may not have been exactly what she signed up for.

    The R&B singer was the guest performer at FNB stadium in South Africa on Saturday for Mandela Sports and Culture Day--but she wasn't given the warmest welcome. The venue, which holds 90,000 people, was almost empty as soon as she hit the stage despite being filled with people throughout the day.

    After the day's countless performers, and even a soccer game, most of the attendees had headed home just ahead of her performance.

    "Brandy [just] performed to an empty stadium. With the stadium lights on," tweeted a shocked South African musician, Kabomo at the time.

    "People didn't know there was a concert after the games. No one knew Brandy was around. Maybe a 40 people audience ... She sulked after two songs and walked off."

    Brandy reportedly sang for a crowd "of no more than 40 people," and was even cut out of the televised broadcast of the event.

    SABC, the country's national TV station, ended their coverage of the concert just before the "Boy is Mine" singer hit the stage.

    Yikes!

    Neither Brandy nor the concert promoters have made a statement about the event.
