Rick Ross joins Lil Wayne on SA tour

2011-11-17 09:22

Fans of Lil Wayne will be treated to an extra surprise – the hip-hop superstar will be joined by fellow rapper Rick Ross on stage in Joburg next month.

This was announced by Canoc Productions this morning.

A multi-award-winning and best-selling artist himself, Rick Ross is no stranger to South Africa. He visited the country last year for one show in Cape Town.

The two artists have various hits between them and some collaborations that include John and 9 Piece.

The South African leg of the Lil Wayne world tour titled “I Am Still Music” proved to be so popular, that the promoter and sponsor, Channel O, today announced an extra 2 000 tickets for the show at the Coca Cola Dome on Friday December 9.

For fans who missed him in Cape Town last year, Rick Ross will show Joburg fans what they missed when he joins Wayne on stage.

Wayne will also be joined by his fellow Young Money Entertainment stablemates, Corey Gunz, Gudda Gudda, Mack Maine (Young Money’s president and life-long friend of Lil Wayne), Shannel, T-Streets and Jae Millz. Drake will also be performing in South Africa, albeit at Gallagher Estate in Midrand, on the same night.

The Lil Wayne show will also take place at the Bellville Velodrome in Cape Town on December 7 before moving to Johannesburg, ending at the Wavehouse in Durban on December 11.

Local support acts are yet to be announced, as Canoc Productions is holding a “Lil Wayne supporting act” competition.

Concert-goers are given the opportunity to design their own concert experience while at the same time creating a once in a lifetime opportunity for local musicians, DJ’s, dancers and bands to perform at one of the Lil Wayne concerts.

The competition is split onto two main categories – one for established artists and the other for up-and-coming artists.

In each of these categories there will be an opportunity for one DJ, a group of dancers plus a soloist, band or group to be selected.

Tickets are still available at Computicket.
