Ye brings Mercy to Mzansi

One of the most celebrated rappers, multi-award winning Kanye West, is set to entertain SA rap lovers and those who understand and appreciate good music in a special one night performance.

The highly-anticipated event, which has been dubbed FEEL THE BEAT OF SUBZERO concert, is sponsored by Castle Light and reportedly scheduled for 2 February in Johannesburg. However, Kanye West’s fans will have to to wait patiently for the venue to be announced, as it’s still undisclosed. The alcohol beverage has become synonymous with hip hop concerts, as they also hosted Drake in 2011 when he performed at Gallagher Estate. Brand campaign manager, Khayazi Dyantyi, confirmed that the brand is bringing Kanye to Mzansi, “Yes, it is true we are bringing Kanye West next year, for a one-night-only event”.

Although this would be one of the most flooded performances by hip hop admirers, limited tickets are expected to go on the counter at Computicket from the 28th of September, priced from R650 for a standard ticket to R1 000 for limited golden circle tickets.
