Africa’s songsters and Snoop Lion set to storm the MTV Africa All stars stage.
Popular Nigerian singer, D’banj, and Kenyan’s undisputed kings of Kwaito, Big Nuz, will join Snoop Lion (Snoop Dogg) and other African megastars who are set to electrify music fans at the MTV Africa All Stars, KwaZulu-Natal.
D’banj’s innovative fusion of AfroBeat, AfroPop and AfroFusion sounds, delivered in a combination of Yoruba, English and Pidgin English, has helped him rise to stardom.
The self-styled “koko master” and multi-platinum selling recording artist achieved global attention thanks to his 2012 smash-hit “Oliver Twist”, which sold more than 11 million copies worldwide and debuted at number nine on the U.K. national charts just behind the likes of Rihanna and Tulisa
Kenya’s Big Nuz, the insanely talented trio and award-winning Durban homeboys that comprise Jojo, Mzi and Sbu , have confidently transformed the South African dance music landscape, growing under the guidance of their mentor, DJ Tira, and gracing innumerable clubs and stages at home and abroad with banging dance floor favourites such as “Umlilo”, “Ntombenhle”, “Serious” and “Newlands West”.
The first ever MTV Africa All Stars concert, staged by MTV Base and KwaZulu-Natal Province is billed for the Moses Mabhida Stadium People’s Park in Durban on May 18, 2013.
Other top African acts billed for the show are Fally Ipupa, Professor, 2Face, Flavour and Zakes Bantwini. Additional exciting artists will be announced shortly, organisers have said.
