SOMEONE should be smiling from ear to mouth after news that Beyoncé and husband Jay-Z are making their way to mzansi in December for the Global Citizens Festival.
Yes, you guessed right- its none other than Fikile “Mbaks” Mbalula, former sport and police minister who has a thing for Mrs Carter. Talk of penchant…
The Carters will be joined by a host of other international celebrities Oprah‚ Ed Sheeran‚ Usher‚ Chris Martin‚ Pharrell Williams‚ Forest Whitaker‚ Naomi Campbell‚ Sir Bob Geldof‚ Tyler Perry and Gayle King.
Talk of Naomi, apparently she barked out orders to media not to photograph her neither did she offer interviews at the press briefing in Sandton. It ain’t cool at all madame Naomi!
The Global Citizen Festival is a free and ticketless concert that rallies celebs‚ politicians’ and global leaders to end extreme poverty.
Africa line-up boast stars such as Cassper Nyovest‚ D’banj‚ Femi Kuti and Wizkid and others.
The Mandela 100 Festival, in partnership with the House of Mandela, will serve as the capstone event of Global Citizen’s year-long Be the Generation campaign, inspired by the revered former leader of South Africa and his lifelong dedication to rallying people together to use their collective voices to speak for the most marginalized people.
“Responding to Nelson Mandela’s call for us to be the generation to end extreme poverty, artists and leaders will be joined by 100,000 Global Citizens who’ve taken action on the Global Citizen social advocacy platform to earn their free tickets to the festival at FNB Stadium in Johannesburg”, read a statement from Stadium Management SA.
Oprah will deliver the keynote address at the festival where she will remember Madiba and his legacy.
The festival is scheduled for December 2 at FNB Stadium.
