MBABANE – American Hip Hop star Jayceon Taylor, popularly known as The Game, will perform in the kingdom on July 19.
The artist will be in the country courtesy of Swazi Boy Entertainment and will perform at Mavuso Trade Centre. This was announced yesterday during a press launch of the event at Solane’s Executive Lounge.
Mthunzi ‘Shadow’ Zwane of Swazi Boy said it was a privilege for him to announce the biggest concert in the country. He said the concert would be of benefit to the underprivileged in the country and they would be working together with some NGO’s especially those dealing with children.
“The Game will be in the country as part of his LAX tour and he will perform only in the country here in Africa,” he said. He said the artist would perform alongside Theo of Mafikizolo, Jaziel Brothers and Swazi Boy’s first lady Lando Dlamini. DJ Papz will man the turntables on the day. He said tickets to the show would be out soon and next week Monday would be the latest day of release. He also said they would not produce more than 20 000 tickets.
Targeted He also said the Hip Hop artist had a huge following among the 12-35 year age group and so the show would be on Sunday during the day because it was targeted for the whole family. He also urged the public to support them and make the show a success because it was the first of its kind. Zwane said The Game would definitely come to the country as he had already been paid. He said they were aware that other entertainment stables had tried bringing international acts but failed, but he said it would be different with Swazi Boy.
He also said they had roped in Channel O as their media partner to market the show to the rest of Africa. He said security would be tight on the day as police would make sure that those without tickets were not allowed within 100 metres of the venue.
Preparations He added that they would make preparations with the artist’s management about those who would want to take photos with the artist. Tickets will cost E180 for those in the stands, unreserved sitting will cost E280 and this will be for those in the pitch. Those who wish to be in touching distance with the artist will have to fork out E450. Zwane said VIP packages would be available and the costs would be announced soon.
