It’s Snoop Lion weekend in SA

snoop-lion-allstars-281x211You’ll know by now that Snoop Lion is jetting into Durban in the next day or so. This is ahead of Saturday’s MTV Africa All Stars concert, which is taking place at the People’s Park, Moses Mabhida Stadium. I’m heading down on Saturday to hopefully catch Snoop on camera, as well as some of the other acts. Side note, I’m happy the Durbanites are getting a concert for once.. I know y’all often feel left out, so here’s to making you happy*

And with that, I can let those of you in Cape Town and in Jozi know that Snoop will be in your hood too. He’ll be out at the Ellis Park Arena on Sunday evening, followed by a concern at the Grand Area GrandWest on the 21st. AKA and Jack Parow will be the support acts for ‘the Lion’.

Snoop Lion heads to South Africa

snoop 3

Lighters up peops, Snoop Lion is on his way to South Africa this May. He’ll be heading out to the sunny shores of Durban to headline the MTV Africa All Stars Concert on the 18th of May. The former Dogg now Lion said he was excited about heading out to SA again. “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.”

While on stage at the iconic Moses Mabhida Stadium, the star is without a shadow of a doubt, going to share experience of his putting together his latest release, REINCARNATED. In case you don’t know, it’s his multi-media project capturing Snoop’s exploration of reggae music and spiritual growth.

World Cup Draw tonight!

This evening’s draw for the World Cup will decide the pools for the first round of next year’s FIFA World Cup. I cannot wait. Charlize Theron, David Beckham and a whole host of other international celebrities and high profile peops will be in Cape Town for the big draw. It’s going to be huge. All the street lights in Cape Town are functioning, the city has been cleaned up and from what I’m hearing it’s looking amazing. Jealousy is me! Anyways, this is South Africa’s- and Africa for that matter- big moment. Almost 200 million people are expected to watch the live broadcast and the spectacle that will follow it with performances by TKZee and the Soweto Gospel Choir to name a few. Can’t wait.
