BlackBerry’s first Secret Gig to feature the UK’s Tinie Tempah

If you’re not using an iPhone chances are you’re on a BlackBerry (like me). I think I’d be officially lost without mine, but that isn’t the purpose of this post. What you’re probably more interested in is BlackBerry’s first Secret Gig. The gig will be held next weekend in a secret venue in Johannesburg and it’ll feature Hip Hop superstar Tinie Tempah.

He’ll be jetting in next Saturday for the performance and I’m told he’s shooting out the next day, so this is big, exclusive and you will want to be part of it. Here’s how:

Listen to 5FM’s Grant and Anele between 12-3 everyday until the 7th of this month. You’ll need to listen out for the Broadcast my Life feature and add them on BBM: 231ACB18. You could win yourselves one of two Superfan VIP packages to the gig. This includes a shuttle to and from the secret venue, a meet and greet opportunity, accommodation and of course of tickets to the all important and exclusive party. Nice hey! If you’re outside of Jozi, you will win a return ticket too.

The competition runs until 8 September 2011 and only 500 people will be there. Don’ be like me and miss out on this party. It’s going to be insane!
