Cassper Nyovest is excited to perform at the opening of the first South African version of NickFest next weekend on 13 June.
The rapper has previously performed alongside influential artists such as Talib Kweli, DJ Drama, Kid Cudi and Kendrick Lamar.
“I’ll be taking my career to a new level when I share a stage with icons like SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer, and a quartet of giant green amphibians warriors,” said Nyovest.
Also performing alongside Cassper on 13 June will be teen vocal group The Buzz, the Tsogo Sun Arts Academy All Stars, and Morgan Beat Box.
Two shows will be held daily at 10 am-1 pm, and 2pm-5pm. Mi Casa is headlining the lineup for Sunday 14 June 2015. Three Nickelodeon character shows and meet and greets take place on both days.
Tickets for NickFest are now on sale at Computicket, priced R110 per ticket (entry free for children under 2). A percentage of funds from ticket sales will be donated to the Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital Trust to aid sick children.
