Johannesburg - It's official.

Multiple-award winning rapper Kanye West is set to jet to our shores next year to perform for one night only.

The event, which will be sponsored by alcohol beverage maker Castle Lite, is said to be scheduled for 2 February, when Kanye will perform to his fans at an undisclosed venue in Johannesburg.

Brand campaign manager of Castle Lite Khayakazi Dyantyi said: "Yes, it is true we are bringing Kanye West next year, for a one-night-only event".

This year the brand brought singer Drake to perform at Gallagher Estate and next year the brand hopes to host 6 000 guests to live the experience with West.

Limited tickets are expected to go on sale at Computicket from 28 September, priced from R650 for a standard ticket to R1 000 for limited golden circle tickets.

    Just hide your daughters while this idiot is in town...

      coenraad.vanderwesthuizen.3 - 2012-09-21 12:14

      Think about it. If he can get himself to nail that ******, he won't be able to draw the line anywhere over what he nails. Just my crazy opinion.

  • roberta.sanfona - 2012-09-21 13:33

    Why would they bring him on the same night as Red Hot Chili Peppers?! I know the assumption is that they don't have the same target audience but that assumption is WRONG!!! So sad I won't get to see him :(
