Snoop Dogg to heat up Durban

Snoop Dogg (Rastafarian name: Snoop Lion)
Hip-hop mogul Snoop Lion (aka Snoop Dogg) is set to perform in Durban next as part of the MTV Africa All Stars Tour, which salutes the star quality and widespread appeal of contemporary African musicians. The Cube in uMhlanga Rocks recently saw the launch of this Pan African music and youth empowerment campaign, which was joined by some of South Africa’s top musicians and representatives of MTV Base. In his official PR statement, Snoop Lion said: “I am honoured to bring this important message of peace and love to South Africa. 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.” Some of the most popular contemporary artists from across the African continent united at the launch at The Cube. Included on the line-up were the hip hop artist Professor, the South African hip hop trio Teargas, DJ Tira, Zakes Bantwini, Big Nuz and DJ C’ndo, to name a few.
