Justin Bieber is coming back to South Africa for the first time (to perform) since 2017. Recently, the star announced that his Justice World Tour will be hitting Cape Town and Johannesburg. The DHL Stadium will have ‘Baby’ roaring all night long on 28 September 2022. But only if the singer recovers in time.
In an Instagram video, Bieber revealed the reason behind his recent concert cancellations which has left fans feeling pretty gutted. The post is captioned: “IMPORTANT PLEASE WATCH. I love you guys and keep me in your prayers.”
He’s been diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt syndrome (RHS): a rare neurological disorder characterised by paralysis of the facial nerve (facial palsy) and a rash affecting the ear or mouth. Bieber is visibly affected, with the singer pointing out a lack of functioning on one half of his face. He’s unable to blink or smile.
Bieber says that he will recover but doesn’t know when or how long it will take. He added that this is his body’s way of telling him to slow down and rest, and has thanked his fans for their patience and prayers.
