Entertainment icon Snoop Lion (@SnoopLion), aka Snoop Dogg, is on his way to South Africa next month to headline the inaugural MTV Africa All Stars concert in Durban on the 18th May 2013. The “Reincarnated” rapper, singer-songwriter, producer, actor and reality star will headline “MTV Africa All Stars KwaZulu-Natal Province” alongside some of the African continent’s most popular contemporary artists.
“MTV Africa All Stars – KwaZulu-Natal Province” will be held at Moses Mabhida Stadium, People’s Park, Durban on 18 May 2013 and will be broadcasting to the globe via MTV’s acclaimed World Stage franchise.
“I’m honoured to bring this important message of peace and love to South Africa,” said Snoop Lion. “This is the motherland and a place of so much history and strife. I hope that this concert reminds us it is also a place of joy, love, celebration and peace – which is very much in line with where I am as an artist right now. I want to thank all the incredible artists joining me and props to MTV for sharing this important moment with the world.”
A joint initiative by MTV Base (DStv Channel 322) and the KwaZulu-Natal Province, MTV Africa All Stars also aims to raise the international profile of KwaZulu-Natal as a premiere destination for tourism and economic development.
More details of the upcoming MTV Africa All Stars events including dates, venues and performers will be announced shortly.
