Newbie to the international hip-hop scene August Alsina has just been announced as the international surprise guest for Chris Brown’s upcoming South African shows – but will it help ticket sales?
August Alsina recently collaborated with the R&B star and Trey Songz for the “I Luv This Shit” Remix. That three also joined together on stage at the 2014 BET Awards. To date, the single has sold more than 1,000,000 copies and been certified Platinum by the RIAA so fans can expect a performance of the track when Chris performs in Jozi and Durban.
August has dreamt of opening for Chris Brown and Usher and while he did open for the latter last year, the star will finally join Chris Brown on stage right here in Mzansi.
That being said, many of the public have complained about the ridiculously high prices the promotors and Chris Brown are charging for this concert and I don’t think having August there will make people think otherwise. Chris also disappointed thousands of fans when he performed in South Africa back in 2012.
