Mary J. Blige for Bet Experience Africa
Multi-Grammy award winning R&B superstar Mary J. Blige has been unveiled to perform at this year’s BET Experience Africa concert billed for December 12, at the Ticketpro Dome, Johannesburg. Blige, who last performed in South Africa in 2007, will join Maxwell, Raphael Saadiq, Tamar Braxton and Young Thug on the same stage, as African superstars AKA, Flavour and Diamond Platnumz set to thrill at what is shaping up to be the lifestyle experience of the year.
Pure, unadulterated and empowering – that has been Mary J. Blige’s calling card ever since her 1992 multi-platinum debut album, What’s the 411? In the ensuing years, the singer/songwriter’s musical strong suit has attracted an intensely loyal fan base – responsible for propelling worldwide sales of more than 50 million albums and 25 million singles.
Coming to Africa for the first time in 2015, the BET Experience Africa provides the perfect kick off to the summer season, taking over Johannesburg’s Ticketpro Dome for a non-stop, jam-packed entertainment fest, bringing together lovers of urban culture and music. Wowing visitors all day long, the BET Experience Africa will showcase great food, fashion, music, comedy, sport, sneakers and much, much more.
Inspiring, immersive and hugely entertaining, BET Experience Africa will feature stunning live performance on an outdoor Festival Stage, while stand-up routines from comedy stars will keep the audience laughing. Fashionistas will also be able to check out the hottest trends on the Sneaker scene from sneaker heads Hunting for Kicks and enjoy fashion shows from top South African designers.
The BET Experience Africa is promoted in partnership with Glen 21 and inspired by the BET Experience, held annually in Los Angeles.
