Nigerian-born American multiple Grammy award winning rapper, Wale is set to perform in Nigeria for the first time.
The Maybach Music Group star will be performing at the concert to preview Panshak Zamani, rap star popularly known as Ice Prince’s sophomore album, Fire Of Zamani, holding on 23 November at the Eko Hotel & Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.
The concert is part of activities to commemorate the release of his critically acclaimed second album.
His record label, Chocolate City also confirmed that chart topping UK rapper, Chipmunk will also be rocking the concert’s stage along with Africa’s top rapper, MI Abaga.
“You will experience me like never before. I will be performing with some of the masters in the game from Nigeria and beyond including Wale, Chipmunk and MI. I won’t let out more than that for now,” said Ice Prince.
Wale and Chipmunk are two of the superstar international acts featured on Ice Prince’s second album. The Nigerian American rapper Wale was on the track Tipsy after Ice Prince introduces him brilliantly and he reassured Nigerians he is still part of them. Smooth and suave Chipmunk blends brilliantly with Ice Prince on Mercy as both MCs silver-tongued talked about fine ladies with Ice name-dropping Yvonne Okoro.
“Never before have we seen something this fresh and up to date from Ice Prince without losing the essence of what his music is all about,” said M.I, who also doubles as Chocolate City’s Vice President.
Fire Of Zamani was released on 28 October to much local and global acclaim.
