French Montana will perform in Egypt for the first time.
Egypt continues to bring in the big music names to perform. After the successful Red Hot Chili Peppers gig at the Giza Pyramids last month, one of hip-hop’s biggest stars, French Montana, will soon make his Cairo debut.
The rapper will perform at Dandy Mega Mall, at the 6th October district, on April 12. Ticket prices start from EGP 500.
With such a proximity to the GCC, one can reasonably hope Montana will also fit in a few club dates in either Dubai, Abu Dhabi or Muscat as part of this regional trip.
Montana is gradually making the Middle East and North Africa region an integral part of his touring plans.
Born Karim Kharbouch, his family comes from Morocco and Montana immigrated to the US as a teenager, working his way up from creating mix-tapes to becoming one of the biggest names in the music industry, having collaborated with the likes of P Diddy and DJ Khaled.
Despite the acclaim and the big Los Angeles mansion that come with it, Montana has never forgotten where he came from. As well as performing in Morocco regularly, he also shot the music video for his track Famous in the famed blue city of Chefchaouen – it was where his family formerly resided.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Al-Sahawat Times than ever but advertising revenues across the global media industry are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a total paywall. We want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Al-Sahawat Times’ independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe truly ethical media and an unbias perspective really matters.
“I appreciate there not being a paywall: it is more democratic for the media to be available for all and not a commodity to be purchased by a few. I’m happy to make a contribution so others with less means still have access to information.”
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, the future of ethical media and the futures of our staff and their families would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support Al-Sahawat Times and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
