The Carters played a attractive set at the event in South Africa, paying tribute to Mandela with performances of "Holy Grail", "Part II (On The Run)" and "03 Bonnie & Clyde".

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.

Global Citizen, an advocacy group, campaigns for an end to extreme poverty, and other causes. Many people got tickets to the concert through charity work and petition-signing.

The concert that was organised in honour of Nelson Mandela's 100 years and was being streamed live online.

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

While the Global Citizen Festival went off largely without a hitch yesterday, there have been several reports of muggings after it ended.

She said the muggers were even pulling knives and guns on the defenceless revellers. Security outside the festival became a massive issue once people began leaving the venue waiting for their Uber and Taxify rides.

"The safety of our guests is always of paramount importance to us and we understand" the hurt and anger of those accosted by criminals, Global Citizen, an worldwide advocacy group, said on Twitter.

Police arrested one suspect after a mobile phone was stolen, Brigadier Vish Naidoo said.

The model was one of the guest speakers who took to the stage in between performances at the FNB Stadium.

World leaders previously gathered at the stadium in 2013 for a memorial after the death of Mandela, the anti-apartheid leader who was also South Africa's first black president.
