Two months after Meek Mill wished for a gig in Africa, it came true. The Philadelphia rapper has been unlocked by Castle Lite for their annual event.
Twitter has been abuzz with excitement since the announcement was made by the alcohol brand on Thursday.
Meek Mill is really performing in South Africa
In March, a tweet by the rap superstar left fans guessing if it was a mystery reveal of an upcoming tour, seeing that he had recently released his fourth studio album, Championships.
I wanna do a big ass show in Africa!!!

The post gained support from many of his South African fans, including our own rap impresario, Cassper Nyovest, who replied to the tweet, stating that he could make it happen.
I can make that happen. Tla hierso bachana. https://t.co/puzL9gWJcH

Well, it looks like it is happening without a doubt but we aren’t so sure if, this time, it was Nyovest’s doing. Meek Mill will be sharing the two-day event with his countryman and fellow rapper, Post Malone.
When is Post Malone performing?
The two Hip-Hop powerhouses will headline the Castle Lite Unlocks event at the Ticketpro Dome in Johannesburg, on 17 and 18 June.
Meek will be up first on Monday, with Malone closing things off the next day. The rappers will be assisted by local acts such as Nyovest himself, A-Reece, Rouge the Rapper, J Molley and more.
Castle Lite Unlocks: How to get tickets
Tickets to the two-day show are available for purchase at participating retailers.
Entry for the first day of the event will cost fans a minimum of R250, while tickets to see Malone start from R790.
