Cape Town – Snoop Lion, the rapper formerly known as Snoop Dogg, is coming to South Africa to headline the MTV Africa All Stars concert.

The concert, titled MTV Africa All Stars KwaZulu-Natal Province, will be taking place on 18 May at the Moses Mabhida Stadium, People's Park, Durban. It will also be broadcast around the world as part of MTV's acclaimed World Stage franchise on MTV Base (DStv channel 322) and MTV's global TV network.

"I'm honoured to bring this important message of peace and love to South Africa," said Snoop Lion.

"This is the motherland and a place of so much history and strife. I hope that this concert reminds us it is also a place of joy, love, celebration and peace - which is very much in line with where I am as an artist right now. I want to thank all the incredible artists joining me and props to MTV for sharing this important moment with the world."
