JOHANNESBURG - English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran is coming to South Africa and will be performing in Cape Town and Johannesburg. 

The announcement was made on Monday morning on radio stations across the country. 

The ginger-haired pop guitarist dominated Spotify in 2017 and was streamed more than any other artist - not a surprise, considering his song "Shape of You," the fourth track on "Divide," reigns as Spotify&39;s most streamed song ever.

South African Twitter users welcomed the news on Monday morning but were upset that he was not visiting other South African cities.
