Gabriella Pilakoutas tweeted: “Kendric Lamar postponed till First March in Joburg! YES! He won’t be here during exams anymore.” Lamar’s publist, Melanie Ramjee said that both parties agreed on the new dates in February and March.
Lamar’s new SA tour dates are as follows:
- Wavehouse, Durban February 28th
