Gangsta rapper Jayceon Terrell Taylor, better known as The Game, is coming to Kenya on November 15.
The Game is to headline the debut edition of the MTV Africa Music Awards with Zain (Mama) scheduled for November 22 in Nigeria; however, he will first perform at the pre-awards event to be held at Bomas of Kenya in Nairobi.
The West Coast rapper, who is also nominated in the Best Hip Hop category at the awards, will also perform in the DRC, South Africa and Nigeria in the run-up to the Awards.
In Kenya, The Game will be supported by Uganda’s Bebe Cool, Nigeria’s 2Face, Kenya’s Jua Cali, Wahu, Wyre and Nazizi.
The MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMAs) main ceremony is set for November 22 but with four weeks to go, MTV and sponsors Zain are kick-starting the celebrations with what they have dubbed The Road To Mama.
Tickets for the Road to Mama concert in Nairobi are already on sale priced at KShs1,500 (around Shs360,000).
