Beyonce pays tribute to Nelson Mandela

Beyonce performed at the Global Citizen Festival Mandela 100 music festival

Days before performing at the event, Beyonce penned an appreciative letter to the late Mandela.

South African police on Monday dismissed allegations of lax safety and security outside the FNB Stadium after the Global Citizen Festival, saying that it was successful in combating crime and that those who allegedly fell victim to robberies should open criminal cases.

American music star Beyonce performed on Sunday alongside her hubby Jay Z at the Global Citizen Festival in South Africa, but her online fans were barred from streaming the entire performance. "It's nice to get this obvious reminder of Mandela's values", said concert-goer Ano Shonhiwa, 23, as he made his way into the venue.

"People's bags are getting snatched, people are losing their phones, people are fighting in the midst of us looking for an Uber", a concert-goer said in a video posted on YouTube.

To honor the memory of a fighter for human rights, who is 27 years spent in prison for his position, brought thousands of citizens of different countries of the world, including Oprah Winfrey, Naomi Campbell, Beyonce, Jay-Z and other famous people.
