His invitation is a seal of approval from international promoters after the young man’s big collaborations with the continent’s giants like Davido, Diamond Platnumz, Nasty C among other East African stars.


The 23-year-old said he was not out to add numbers but raise the Zimbabwean flag at the mammoth musical fete parading the continent’s best.


Some of the continent’s big names on the line-up comprise Tiwa Savage, Flavour, D Banj, Harmonize, Jeff Maximum, Mayorkun, Reekado Banks, Chike, Oxlade among others.


Speaking to H-Metro Entertainment & Lifestyle from Dubai yesterday ahead of his performance, the Kachiri hit-maker said he was ready for the big night.


“I’m promising fans a very high energy performance, not Afro beat but a bit of amapiano,” he said.


Asked how he landed the contract to perform, the urbane rapper said:


“We got an invite from Mr Paulo, the founder of the event through Davido, that’s how we got the contract to perform.”


King 98 also shared his sentiments on why he was accepted more abroad than on home soil, especially after being invited to perform at this festival.


“I see a lot of hope, have always believed that my talent is universal, so I’m really happy,” he said.


Given a chance, to choose the artistes he would love to work from the line-up, he said:


“Given a chance, I would really want to work with want Tiwa Saavage, I would really want to work with Flavour,” said the rapper who is now reaping rewards of powerful networking.


The much-travelled rapper said this show was a bit special to him since it was his debut performance in Dubai.


“This is my first time being there, so I’m really excited and happy.”


Like most artistes who usually get busy during this time of the year, King 98 said he still have more for his fans back home.


“We have the Focalistic Show, that gonna have a lot of Zimbabwean artistes such as Buffalo Soldier, Nox, Holy Ten  and other shows that are still be announced,” he said.


The South Africa based rapper, who lost his father Thompson Dondo early this year, recently told this publication he was mentally fit to resume love shows.


With the support of family, friends and management, King 98 has managed to remain focused despite the loss of an influential dad who pushed him to really work hard from day one.
