Snoop Lion For MTV All Stars

Snoop Lion will be part of the MTV Africa All Stars gig but not the Kenyan edition. The controversial star will headline the inaugural MTV Africa All Stars concert in Durban, South Africa on 18 May 2013.

 The “Reincarnated” rapper, singer-songwriter, producer, actor and reality star will headline“MTV Africa All Stars KwaZulu-Natal Province”, alongside the most popular contemporary artists from across the African continent.

“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.”

Commented Alex Okosi, Senior Vice President & Managing Director, Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) Africa, “As one of hip hop’s most influential artists, we are delighted that Snoop Lion will be headlining the MTV Africa All Stars concert in Durban in May.”
