South Africa-based Zim Hip Hop artiste King 98 will be joining South Africa’s Hip Hop sensation Nasty C’s The Ivyson Tour which set to begin on August 23 at Sneaker Cartel in Cape Town and end on October 18 at 012 Central in Pretoria.
The 21-year-old King 98 will be part of a stellar line-up of performers for the much-publicised tour that will be staged at different venues and cities across South Africa.
Among the artistes who have been confirmed to be part of the tour are Saint Leeuw, Lutho SA, Verge, King Lad, Tumi Turna, October Brothers and Zimbabweans Hanna and Tashinga.
The youthful rapper, who is pursuing a degree in music and arts at the University of Pretoria, has continued to cement his relationship with several artistes across the region.
He recently performed at fully-subscribed concerts in Zambia and Mozambique and is currently riding high with his debut 15-track album, Francesca, featuring Davido and Nasty C.
King 98 was recently quoted saying that he would leave no stone unturned in his ambitious crusade to put Zimbabwe on the global map.
The Shoko hit-maker has done a string of collaborations with regional music heavyweights including Nigerian superstar David “Davido” Adeleke, Nasty C and Mozambican award-winning hip-hop sensation Edson Abel Jeremias Tchamo.
