Nasty C To Share The Stage With Rick Ross In Zimbabwe
Organisers of popular US rapper, Rick Ross’maiden performance in Zimbabwe have announced South African Hip-hop prodigy, Nasty C as a supporting act.
Rick Ross, real name William Leonard Roberts II, is scheduled to perform in Zimbabwe at Harare International Conference Center on Friday, November 18, 2022.
Nasty C adds to two local artistes, Holy 10 and Takura, whom the show organisers, Roar Entertainment Africa had named as supporting acts.
This comes several weeks after Hip Hop fans launched a petition to bar Zimbabwe’s celebrated artists Winky D and Jah Prazyah from performing as curtain-raisers at the show.
The petition was launched by a fan identified as Lennon Emmanuel.
He argued that Winky D and Jah Prayzah are not hip hop artists therefore they should not be lined up for the concert.
Speaking on the issue – at the time – in an interview with Zimbuzz, Ginimbi’s former manager and Roar Entertainment Africa member Ms Shally said they were going to consider the people’s concerns adding that they would not choose usual curtain-raisers.
We haven’t really picked up yet on opening acts, it’s something we are still applying our head around. But one thing I can say to you is that we are going to pick artists that Zimbabwe hasn’t used to open for big acts. We have heard people’s concerns and we are promising to put on different artists on this show.
She said they were going to use local MCs for the Rick Ross show which will be 80% hip hop.
We are going to spice it up a bit but I can guarantee you that the acts on the day will be 80 percent hip hop, the other 20 percent is just to spice it up a bit
