2Face’s presence in South Africa was felt by the fans last night when he featured in a pre-final show at the Malobo Club, Johannesburg. The ‘You re my African Queen’ crooner told the audience he would treat them to his best music come Sunday before the grand finale of the tournament between Netherland and Spain.

Apart from 2Face and Shakira, other artists lined up for the show are multiple Grammy Award winners Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Jozi, Stoan Seate, Slikour, Zuluboy, Abigail Kubeka, Theo Kgosinkwe, African artists Nianell and flutist Wouter, Ghana’s Samini and popular local traditional group Ihashi Elimhlophe.

The closing ceremony of the tournament will take place before the final match of the tournament and will start at 18h30. The LOC says it will be broadcast live in 215 countries to an audience in excess of 500-million viewers and will feature 780 cast members and some of South Africa and Africa’s top musicians and dancers.
