Grammy Award-winning artist, platinum producer and TV star, Lil Jon, is headed to South Africa. The artist, known for the raunchy nature of his club-friendly music, will headline the Maloof Money Cup South Africa Benefit Concert in Kimberley on Saturday, 1 October 2011.
This benefit concert, held as part of the Maloof Money Cup World Skateboarding Championships presented by Kumba Iron Ore from 30 September – 2 October, will also feature top South African performers like HHP, Jozi, Danny K and Kabelo. The concert will take place at the GWK stadium in Kimberley.
“When we made the decision to expand the Maloof Money Cup globally, we wanted to ensure that we gave back to all the communities we touch,” said Joe Maloof, creator of Maloof Money Cup.
“In addition to being a highly acclaimed artist, Lil Jon is also one of the most generous individuals in the music industry. When we reached out to him about this benefit concert, he quickly jumped on board and we’re grateful for his enthusiasm for this incredible cause. Lil Jon as well as this incredible group of South African musicians will put on an absolutely tremendous concert.”
Lil Jon seemed thrilled by the prospect of performing in Africa.
“I’m excited to go for the first time and perform in Africa for the Maloof Money Cup,” said Lil Jon. “The Maloofs pull together the best athletes and artists for this contest and I’m always happy to be a part of it.”
