It’s June and we’ve started to count down the days until Castle Lite exclusively UNLOCKS hip hop sensation, J Cole, on 18 June at the Ticketpro Dome. We’ve had the chance to go behind the scenes and hear what some of South Africa’s top culture and music influencers had to say about the upcoming one night only performance and the why it’s vitally important that the right local acts are chosen to support J Cole.
Having released 3 international number one charting records, J Cole is the self-proclaimed king of modern day hip hop. He’s a lyrical genius and prolific rapper, using his words to highlight self-reflection and contemporary social discussions, the true essence of hip hop. The stature of his artistry has been recently recognised as he received an endorsement from President Obama two weeks ago after performing at a Democratic Fundraiser.
Music, both local and international, forms an essential part of Castle Lite’s DNA but most importantly, it plays an integral role in the lives of South Africans.
“We are extremely excited to be bringing a performer of J Cole’s standing to the country this coming June. J Cole is a progressive artist, and we feel that unlocking him in South Africa will create an unforgettable music experience for Castle Lite fans”
says Marketing Manager of Castle Lite, Vaughan Croeser.
