American rapper Rick Ross is expected to arrive tomorrow for his maiden performance in Zimbabwe amid reports that VVIP tables going for US$3 000 to US$5 000 have already been sold out. Rick Ross born William Leonard Roberts II is scheduled to perform at the Harare International Conference Centre in his first appearance in the country. The multi-Grammy-nominated rapper, who is also a songwriter and producer, is one of the few big American artistes to perform in Zimbabwe in recent years.
At the concert, Rick Ross will share the stage with top South African rapper Nasty C, born Nsikayesizwe David Junior Ngcobo who will also arrive on the concert day. Rick Ross would arrive in the early hours of the day for preparations and rehearsals, NewsDay Life & Style reported citing Dumisani Chihota from concert organisers ROAR Entertainment. Chihota is quoted as saying:
We expect to have Rick Ross here in Zimbabwe on November 18 (tomorrow) and the other supporting act from South Africa, Nasty C. Our premium VVIP tables that were going for US$3 000, US$ 4 000 and US$5 000 are sold out and due to high numbers of people that were continuously requesting to have premium tables, we then introduced US$800 tables which will cater for five people and comes with three Bellaire champagne bottles plus a good view.
The general tickets have been selling well, we also noted that not every student will have the capacity to purchase tickets for US$35 so we understood their request in terms of reducing the price because we want them to come and experience the show hence, we had to specifically reduce the price to US$20 for students.
Dancehall singer Nutty O, hip-hop artiste Takura and Holy 10 will also share the stage with Rick Ross, while DJ King Her and DJ Rimo will be on the decks alongside MC Tatts and MC Cut.
