Popular nightclub Konka has dismissed reports that international superstar Drake is coming to their Soweto venue for a special appearance.

A post shared through a fake Facebook account under the nightclub's name got some regulars excited by the announcement.

“It's official and confirmed Mzansi! Drake is coming to Konka. It's gonna be a lifetime experience,” read the poster.

It said tickets sold for R20,000, and R30,000 for VIPs.

While many were shocked at the ticket prices, Konka dismissed the rumour.

“Scam alert! Fake news! Mara one day is one day,” they wrote on Twitter. 

Some joked they had started plotting to sell their parents' house and chow their stokvel money to see Drake.

Either way, the rumour thrust Konka high on the trends list.

Here is a glimpse into some of the reactions on social media:
