In Harare, Yessonia will join, South African rapper Nasty C and a host of Zimbabwean artists such as Holy 10 and Takura.

“What’s exciting about this event is, it is regional. We have people from Zambia, South Africa and Namibia among other countries who are also buying the tickets. This is not just a Zimbabwean event. It is like a Southern Africa event which is quite exciting and yes, Namibian turntable sensation Dj Yessonia will perform at the show,” said Ms Shally spokesperson of the ROAR Entertainment Africa, the company behind Rick Ross’ show.

Dj Yessonia has been dominating local charts with her song Happy featuring at number 1 on Shipi Fm’s top 20 charts last weekend.
