Watch Beyonce, Ed Sheeran, Usher in South Africa at the Global Citizen Concert

Global Citizen is a movement of engaged citizens who are using their collective voice to end extreme poverty by 2030.

The Global Citizen concert was aimed at raising funds to end poverty while celebrating the centenary of former president Nelson Mandela’s birth. Along with superstar acts, Oprah, Bob Geldof, early Facebook investor Sean Parker, and various political dignitaries took the stage to champion various causes.

The performance headlined a festival that included Beyonce, Jay-Z, Ed Sheeran, Pharrell Williams, Usher, Nigerian superstars D’Banj, WizKid and Tiwa Savage and South African rappers Casper Nyovest and Sho Madjozi with Trevor Noah as the host. The concert was broadcast live on television, but The Carters performance was exclusive to ticket holders who were supposed to earn tickets through good deeds.

It was exactly what fans wanted, but the experience was marred by the ever-present danger of crime in Johannesburg. Criminals spotted an opportunity and moved quickly among the crowds, grabbing cell phones and purses. People ran and screamed, creating more chaos. Others stayed put at the stadium gate, where it was safer but had no transportation.
