A spate of muggings early Monday marred a charity concert in South Africa at which Beyoncé, Jay-Z and other stars performed in honour of Nelson Mandela.

Cape Town - Dozens of revelers who attended the Global Citizen Festival at the FNB Stadium on Sunday have taken to social media to share their experience of what many described as "chaos" after the event, the Citizen reports.

Concert-goers had to wait several hours for transport to leave the almost 95,000-capacity FNB stadium in Soweto Sunday and there were reports of several muggings and assaults.

The Global Citizen Festival is hosted by the Global Poverty Project, which works to combat extreme poverty all over the world through education, advocacy and media.

All the while, Namhla said, South African Police Service (SAPS) was nowhere to be found.

The world-renowned show stopper and formidable queen, Beyoncè, did what she does best at the Global Citizen Festival on Sunday, 2 December.

"There was one robbery that took place at Sasol garage which was reported to us and we arrested the suspect with regards to that".

American music star Beyonce performed on Sunday alongside her hubby Jay Z at the Global Citizen Festival in South Africa, but her online fans were barred from streaming the entire performance.

"I heard that several people were mugged while they were waiting for transport or to call a cab", he said.

"We as stadium management were not involved in the safety and security of the event as we would normally have been as we did with the Guns N' Roses concert last week Thursday", Grobbelaar said.
