Former prison guard - or not - Rick Ross has joined the list of performers for this year's MTV Africa Music Awards with Airtel.
The rapper along with Kenya’s P-Unit, South Africa’s Jozi and Nigeria’s Wande Coal will join previously announced performers DJ Arafat (Ivory Coast), 2Face (Nigeria), Daddy Owen (Kenya), Banky W (Nigeria), Fally Ipupa (DRC), Teargas (South Africa) and Cabo Snoop (Angola) on stage at the event.

This is Rick Ross’ first ever visit to Africa and the rapper is very excited about the opportunity to perform in Nigeria. Rick Ross is not just a performer but also a nominee as well. He is nominated in the Best International Category. Following the trend set by international nominees who performed at the MAMAs in prior years, it is safe to assume that Rick will be walking away with the award.
Making their first appearance at the MAMAs, Best Group contenders P-Unit are going head to head against Uganda’s Radio & Weasel, South Africa’s Teargas and multiple MAMA winners and Nigerian music phenomenon, P-Square.

The MAMAs will take place at the Eko Hotel & Suites in Lagos on Saturday 11 December 2010 and will broadcast on MTV base (DStv Channel 322), MTV platforms around the world and partner TV stations from 18 December 2010.
