French Montana, who was born in Morocco but has been a resident in the US for more than 17 years, is perhaps best known for his profile away from music, having dated a series of A-List stars, Khloe Kardashian.
With the mic in his hand, the 30-year-old has enjoyed chart success 2013’s Pop That, featuring Lil Wayne, Rick Ross and Drake. His album, Excuse My French charted as high as number four. The rapper, real name Karim Kharbouch, will release Mac & Cheese later this later.
The biggest name on the bill, however, is Akon, a star of Senegalese origin who has had three top 20 albums in the US and two number one singles, I Wanna Love You, featuring Snoop Dogg, and Don’t Matter, both in 2006.
Over more than a decade of chart success, Aliaume Damala Badara Akon Thiam has worked with leading lights of the urban music game, including T-Pain, Eminem and Young Jeezy. In 2013 he released Hurt Somebody with French Montana.
Virgin Radio Dubai presenters Kris Fade and Big Rossi, as well as Awilo Logomba and Flavour N’abania, will also be a part of the event, which was attended by more than 4,000 people in 2014.
