Local record label Mabala Noise Entertainment is bringing international R&B/dancehall singer Tony Lanez for the first Durban July launch concert. Tony Lanez is a Canadian-born producer, rapper and singer popularly known for smash hits ‘Say it’ and ‘Diego’, and his most recent song, ‘Luv’, which led to the release of his debut album, I Told You.
Mabala Noise said they were excited to be hosting the first ever launch concert to prepare for the big race day, which happens annually on the first weekend of July.
“As an entertainment house in the South African industry, music forms an essential part of our DNA, but most importantly, it plays an essential role in the lives of South Africans,” said Mabala Noise spokesperson Mhlo Gumede.
The Vodacom Durban July launch concert will see the likes Riky Rick of Nasty C, Du Boiz, AKA, Cassper Nyovest, Kwesta, Ricky Rick, Emtee, DA Les, Zakes Bantwini and L’Vovo perform. The main aim for the concert is for fans to kick off the Durban July weekend festivities with a bang.
Surprisingly, Riky Rick is one of the artists that will be performing at the Mabala noise concert even after his blowup with the entertainment label. Riky announced on Twitter early this year that he will no longer be a part of Mabala Noise. He further alleged Mabala Noise took back the material things they had given him and had threatened him and his family’s future. “They want us gone,” he said.
It appears that the rapper has patched things up with the label.
Concert tickets start at R250 for general access and R500 for Golden Circle and R1 500 for VIP. The concert will on Friday, June 30, 2017.
