R&B superstar Akon to perform at Moses Mabhida

2010-02-13 00:00

R&B SUPERSTAR Akon is coming to Durban — and that’s official. The Senegalese-American singer-songwriter will headline a concert at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on March 27, which could also feature Whitney Houston.

If the organisers, Dolphin Concerts, can get the American songstress to sign on the dotted line, it will be a huge coup, as the Durban gig would mark Houston’s first major concert since leaving rehab.

Next month’s concert forms part of Durban’s celebrations for the 100-day countdown to the 2010 Soccer World Cup.

Speaking at the launch on Wednesday, eThekwini’s Deputy Mayor, Logie Naidoo, said: “We will probably have 50 000 fans in the stadium for this awesome concert. Durban is going to rock that weekend. It’s a one-off concert and it’s in Durban, not Johannesburg or Cape Town.”

Tickets are expected to go on sale shortly. Watch the press for details.
