The Egyptian General Syndicate for Musical Professions has canceled US rapper Travis Scott‘s ‘Utopia’ concert, originally scheduled to be held at the foot of the pyramids on July 28, Your Content has learned.
The syndicate issued a statement citing security considerations and adherence to societal values as the reasons for the cancellation. This comes after controversy surrounding Scott’s alleged ‘satanic’ beliefs and safety concerns.
The syndicate emphasized that approval for public events is contingent upon strict conditions to ensure compliance with Egyptian customs and guidelines.
Scott’s endorsement of the Afrocentric movement, which attributes Egyptian civilization to black Africans, was also mentioned.
Moreover, the cancellation follows the tragic incidents at Scott’s previous concert in the US, where numerous deaths occurred, leading to legal action against him.
The concert was intended to be the launch party for Scott’s new album, “Utopia,” at the Giza pyramids, according to Egypt Independent.
