Rosebank Mall bomb scare shatters Donald’s ‘Dreams’ listening party

Donald Moatshe has escaped unharmed after his album party at Rosebank Mall was cancelled due to a bomb scare.

The singer’s listening party for album offering Dreams was scheduled to take place on Thursday evening in Sandton ahead of its release on Friday, 22 October.

Unfortunately, it had to be postponed indefinitely after the mall undertook an emergency evacuation due to an anonymous bomb threat.


Donald – who announced his album would feature US actor Jussie Smollett of hit series Empire – took to Twitter to reveal he was safe and unharmed after entertainment blogger Phil Mhpela broke the news.

He tweeted of the incident: “God speaks in a different way and I always have to listen. Police came in evacuating everyone from The Rosebank Mall and surrounding buildings, management had no choice but to cancel my album launch.

“I am safe, thank you”.

The singer added that he was not angry or upset at the cancellation of his long-awaited album.

“Everything happens for a reason,” he added.

According to Rosebank Mall, an evacuation took place during the late afternoon after they were “approached by a threat”.

The mall has since been cleared and is scheduled to open as usual on Friday morning.

Donald also took to his Twitter account to shoot down claims the bomb scare was a “PR stunt”.

He posted: “Someone just said my PR Team created a bomb scare in Rosebank which resulted in my launch being cancelled to hype up the album release, a whole Rosebank mall guys!”.

He also retweeted several posts from fans who claimed someone was trying to “sabotage” him.

Dreams launches at midnight on Thursday and features the likes of Jussie, Lady Du, Robot Boii, Iiso Monageng and Mthunzi.
