Win a chance to perform with Lil Wayne

2011-11-25 00:00

EXCITEMENT has been growing since the announcement of hip-hop’s biggest-selling artist Lil Wayne jetting into Mzansi. He will perform on African soil for the first time in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban. The show takes place at the Wavehouse (Umhlanga) on December 11.

In its continued effort to support South African musicians, Canoc Productions is launching the Lil Wayne supporting-act competition. This competition is two-fold by giving concert-goers the opportunity to design their own concert experience, while at the same time creating a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for local musicians, DJs, dancers and bands to perform at one of the Lil Wayne concerts. The competition is split into two main categories: one for established artists and the other for up and upcoming 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.

To stand a chance of being selected to perform at these concerts, artists need to create profiles on www.listen and upload their content - video, songs and pictures, and share it with their fans using social networks. Fans will need to view artist profiles on the site and vote for who they want to see perform at the concert. Each fan is entitled to one vote per artist. The more votes an artist accumulates in a specific category, the better a chance they stand to perform at their chosen concert venue. The website went live as of Wednesday, and the competition ends on December 4.

For those looking just to catch the show, you can buy your tickets at or visit your nearest Computicket outlet. For more information, visit www.lilwaynesa or follow Lil Wayne on Twitter @LilWayneSAtour.
