- Despite the days of the boy band craze being over, some of them have stood the test of time
- One such band is Boyz II Men, who is still very much admired and loved
- The trio is coming to South Africa and their tour announcement was met with a rather mixed reaction
Boyz II Men - one of the most iconic RnB bands in history - will be coming to South Africa in April.
They visited Mzansi in 2015 and remain a very popular group even if the days of the boy band craze is over.
The band has been in the industry for more than 25 years and have delivered many a soulful hit, such as I'll Make Love To You and End of the Road.
However, not everyone is looking forward to the concerts, Briefly.co.za noticed.
There are some peeps who feel the band is only coming over to SA for a 'last paycheck' and using Africa after their careers have died.
Still, the trio has many loyal fans who can't wait to see them perform live. Check out what some social media users had to say:
"Them Americans and resuscitating their dead careers here. They don't come here in their prime and only come here when they are down and out. Voetsek."
"Lol, yet another old school RnB group that's coming to Africa after their careers are done."
"Kwena bona, kere nothing will compel me to buy tickets to the upcoming Boys II Men concert/s. I hate how Africa is always an afterthought for these artists who're in the twilight of their careers, scavenging for one last paycheque."
"For us old chaps, it will be an enjoyable weekend reminiscing."
"Age has nothing to do with beautiful voices. I'm looking forward to seeing them."
"Don’t let real love pass you by- mina I’m there, bona VIP straight. It’s birthday month nogal."
The tour kicks off in Pretoria on 9 April at the Sun Arena, Times Square followed by the Cape Town leg at the Grand Arena, GrandWest Casino on 13 April, according to IOL News.
