Cardi B is once again on the verge of becoming a trending phenomenon in the African continent. According to Sowetan Live, the Bronx born rapper to set to headline the 10th annual Castle Lite Unlock concert in Johannesburg this summer.

Taking place at the top of the summer on June 12, Cardi will stun Mzansi fans at the TicketPro Dome venue.

Once Cardi was announced as the headliner last week, tickets sold out within minutes to an extent, the concert’s official website experiences a virtual traffic jam.

Cardi B’s historic visit to Nigeria in 2019 set the tone for her future trips to accompanying countries, primarily with the suggestion of a pen name. In Nigeria, she was given the name Chioma B thanks to Cool FM’s Taymi B who also named baby Kulture an honorary Yoruba name, Ayomide.

According to South African publication Briefly, South African fans bestowed several prospect Mzansi names to Cardi once she confirmed her visit to the country using her honorary Nigerian name. The suggested names mostly communicated on Twitter include Rakgadi B, Nomcebo, Khanyi B, Buhle, Cardi Babalwa B, and Khadi B.

As the “Money” rapper took to Twitter to announce her coming, she asked Mzansi fans to educate her about South Africa and many users shared worthy facts such as their national anthem, range of languages, hotspots and interestingly there was a common mention among these suggestions which is more of a warning. For hazy reasons, several Mzansi fans and mostly Nigerians who jumped on the thread warned Cardi B to stand clear of South African rapper AKA. The “All Eyes on Me” rapper has been criticized for his ways in relationships, however, Cardi B who is already in a public and profiled relationship with Migos’ Offset, has nothing to worry about.

Cardi B is not the first rapper to headline the hip-hop infused Castle Lite Unlock concert. The jam session has also housed Kanye West, Drake, J Cole, Meek Mill, Chance the Rapper, Travis Scott and Post Malone.
