Billboard Music Award winner Meek Mill will headline day one of the Castle Lite Unlocks, popular for bringing only the best and biggest hip-hop artists to South Africa.
The event will also take place over a period of two days packed with conversation, fashion, and lit performances. Meek Mill (pictured left) will headline day one of the event where attendees will also get to dig deeper into the hip-hop culture through the Cold Table Convo. The panel for that discussion will include SA artists such as Rouge, A-Reece and Slikour.
Topics on the day will include the role of women in hip-hop, substance addiction, various support systems for artists, depression and more.
Other performers on that day are AKA, Cassper Nyovest, Lay Lizzy, Nadia Nakai, Shane Eagle and Moozlie.
Also on day one, attendees will be treated to hip-hop fashion while DM Custom sneakers announced it would give away 10 pairs of Nike One Castle Lite Edition sneakers given away to 10 lucky winners.
The event will also treat fans to the first-ever poetry-packed cypher, hosted by one of America’s biggest radio presenters Sway Calloway. Calloway is no stranger to SA hip-hop after hosting the likes of Cassper Nyovest, Nasty C (pictured right) and AKA on his show where they tackled the growth of the genre in this country, racism and their own musical journeys.
Day two is just as a big with the main unlocked artist Post Malone (Congratulations, Rockstar and Wow) set to take to the stage. Also on the bill will be Riky Rick, Rouge, Nasty C and Tyla Yaweh.
Previous artists brought to South Africa by Castle Lite Unlocks include Drake, Kanye West, Wale, Nas and Timbaland, J. Cole, Travis Scott and Bryson Tiller.
