The Uhura Verified artist on Monday announced he will be performing for the first time at the prestigious event which has been slated for 25-27 September this year.
He will perform on the opening night of the three-day weekend fiesta which will feature appearances from Nigeria’s Ric Hassani, South Africa’s Uhuru and Toya Delazy plus local acts Gwamba and Lulu.
“I feel very blessed to be performing alongside such big artists, it only proves the fruits of my labour are starting to show,” Trappa told MBC Online.
“My only objective, however, is to just do my part and give a killer performance on the night. All in all, it’s a blessing and this is probably the dream performance I’ve been waiting for.
“I’ve performed in the presence of a substantial audience but this has to the biggest audience I’ll have a chance to perform in front of, so am excited to perform as well as interact with other artists at the festival.”
Asked how he managed to make it onto the list of this year’s performers at the country’s premier music festival, the self-proclaimed O.G Badman said: “Well, it’s not really as tough as you may think.
“You just have to be talented in your work and have a vision. If the promoters of the event see that, they’ll give you a chance to grace the stage.
‘However, if you haven’t shown serious professionalism in your music, your vision as a brand or your determination for perfection, then it won’t be so easy to get on the roster.”
Trappa stated that he is aiming for a grand opening at the show so as to live a lasting impression on the event.
“Well, right now we’re just doing some rehearsals prior to the event, setting up the performance as well, he said.
“We’re trying to go all in on this one. I’ll give it everything I have so that next year we end up headlining the event, no doubt about that.
