The three R&B superstars will perform during the gala concert alongside two of Africa’s top artists, multi-instrumentalist Flavour and Bongo Flava star Diamond Platnumz at the BET Experience Africa, a spectacular global celebration of urban culture, music and lifestyle from entertainment channel BET (DStv channel 129).
From a backing singer to her sister, Toni, at the age of 12, to a leading recording artist, actress, talk show host and reality television personality, Tamar Braxton became a star. She recently competed the twenty-first season of Dancing with the Stars and last month released the latest solo single “Catfish” along with the album Calling all Lovers.
Nigerian singer, actor and dancer Flavour N’abania or simply Flavour began his career as a drummer for a local church. Flavour moved on to play the keyboard and guitar. He has received a host of Nigerian and African entertainment nominations and awards, including winning two African Muzik Magazine Awards, an MTV Africa Music Award (MAMA) in 2014 and – as part of The Headies – a Hip Hop World Award.
Nasibu Abdul Jumma better known as Diamond Platnumz (or simply Diamond), has been putting Tanzanian hip hop well and truly on the global music map for the last five years with hit tracks such as “Number One”, “Kipofu” and “Bum Bum”. The multi-award winning artist won the 2015 MTV MAMA Award for Best Live Act, and has been the recipient of 16 Tanzanian Music Awards. Diamond was nominated as Best International Act: Africa at the 2014 BET Awards, and most recently won Best African Act at the 2015 MTV EMAs.
BET Experience Africa will also feature stunning live performances on a central Sound Stage, while stand-up routines from comedy stars will keep the audience laughing. Watch top celebrities battle each other for sporting supremacy at the fun-packed Celebrity Basketball Game. Fashionistas will revel in the Fashion & Beauty catwalk, while checking out the hottest trends on the Sneaker scene. For inspiration, attend one of BET’s informative and instructive Genius Talks, curated by experts and opinion formers in various fields.
Further artists will be announced shortly.
