Prince planning Grammys show

Prince is planning a “very, very special” performance at the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles next month.

The ‘Purple Rain’ singer is set to play a special set at the star-studded ceremony on February 8 at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles, California, adding to an already impressive line-up including Madonna, AC/DC and Pharrell Williams.

A source told Us Weekly: “He has something very, very special in the works.”

The music icon will join other acts such as Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran, Usher, Miranda Lambert and Sam Smith if he does perform at the ceremony, which would be his first time singing at the show since 2004.

During that performance 11 years ago, the ‘Red Corvette’ hitmaker sang with BeyoncĂ© – who has racked up six nominations at this year’s ceremony – performing a medley of ‘Purple Rain’, ‘Let’s Go Crazy’ and ‘Baby I’m a Star’ as well as the 33-year-old musician’s debut solo single ‘Crazy in Love’.

It wouldn’t be the 56-year-old performer’s first appearance at an awards show this year as he attended the 2015 Golden Globe Awards earlier this month, where he presented the Best Original Song category.

  1. Odongo is jealous idiot of a boy because of generous Sonko,whether he donates everything needed in Kenyan hospitals or police posts nothing will change,we have well equipped hospitals but people suffer due to poor performance by the staff,police also do nothing for common people,whatever rubbish you write is a repetition of what mutoko said… SONKO is a man of the people.get a life

      1. i find nothing palatable in that article,its just hatred and jealous of him…there are useless leaders out there whom you cherish

  2. Odongo this is a nice a nice and daring piece which no one wants to accept. Those who think sonko i a “man of the people” and a wonderful leader should realise that good leaders ensure that they set up systems that actually work for the people. lets also ask the difficult questions….who is funding these projects, the capital aspects and the running cost. The last time i checked senators also wanted a salary increment..lets not be blinded Kenyans..everything is in black and white. A good man does not give you fish but teches you how to fish.

  3. Mr. Dannish Odongo…kindly work hard and manage your funds. Comprehend this is your solemnly individual opinion that has no social or economic development agenda. It’s hi-time you paraphrased what you are passionate about.

  4. Watu kuumwa na pesa ya wenyewe. Sonko’s money is his not yours!!!! make yours and manage the way you want. Why are you complaining coz of the way he is using HIS money, is it yours? Yaani we are having this discussions over somebody’s money and the way he spends it? Hehehehe, its hilarious.

  5. Very very true,there are 3M people in Nairobi,80% of them live below the poverty line and 100% of these 80% will not need free limos for weddings that they can’t have. Wish Sonko can do these “donations” privately.
