June 9, 2011 – Rapper cum actor Ludacris will headline this year’s Fiesta festival in Tanzania (Tz), which will take place in late July.
Organisers say Luda will share a bit of the glory with reggae artist Shaggy, real name Orville Richard Burrell.
Fiesta is an annual Tanzanian music festival, which features a stagnated country-wide tour, featuring local and international talent.
It is mostly a Tanzanian affair but some of the international acts in the past have included the likes of Lil Kim and Busta Rhymes.
Shaggy and Luda have been confirmed for finale, which will likely take place on July 26 – but this is subject to change.
Organisers say they are working on the finer details such as which local artists will be part of the music celebrations.
After getting off to a rocky start some years back, Fiesta was a bit hit last year.
Lil Kim was as explicit as expected in August 2010 and the crowd cheered madly as she performed with Juma Nature.
The event is usually organised by local radio station Clouds FM, as a promotion of local talent and a celebration of the love of music.
