Johannesburg - UB40 has not been scheduled to perform in
South Africa, the band said in a statement on Monday.
"We would like to make it known to all UB40 fans in
South Africa that the current shows being advertised at several venues in South
Africa as UB40 shows are not genuine," said the five remaining founding
members of UB40 - Robin Campbell, Brian Travers, James Brown, Earl Falconer and
The band said three former members of UB40 had made an
announcement about several live performances in the country.
"Three former members of UB40, Ali Campbell, Astro
and Michael Virtue, are fraudulently masquerading as UB40," the band said.
UB40 said Campbell left the band six years ago citing
issues with the band's management and had since pursued a solo career.
"While their actions are highly immoral, they are
also illegal, and we are currently pursuing the matter through the law
courts," UB40 said.
