Fabolous, Ashanti, Estelle lined up for new urban night at Supperclub
Dubai’s Supperclub are going after a slice of the urban pie with their new Chocolate nights. Aimed directly at hip hop and R&B fans, the weekly Friday nights kicked off recently with two-time Grammy Award winner T-Pain and Chicago rapper Twista – once the Guinness World Record holder as the fastest rapper on the planet for impressively getting his tongue around nearly 600 syllables in 55 seconds.
Now the remaining March guests have been revealed with Brooklyn hip hop artists John David Jackson – better known as Fabolous – rocking up this weekend. Throughout his 15-year career, Fabolous has collaborated with the likes of Nicki Minaj, Nelly, Wiz Khalifa, Rick Ross, Ludacris, Ne-Yo and Akon, and has six studio albums under his belt.
With worldwide sales of 15 million records to her name, Ashanti is lined up to perform on March 21. Her single Never Should Have won Best Independent R&B/Soul Performance at the 2013 Soul Train Awards.
And it’s left to English R&B singer-songwriter, rapper and record producer Estelle to represent the UK when she appears on March 28. Estelle’s work has earned her numerous awards and accolades, including two MOBO awards, a World Music Award, and one Grammy Award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for American Boy with Kanye West. She has also received two Brit Award nominations, including one for Best British Female Artist.
The Brit has attracted controversy recently following the release of a new single “Make Her Say (Beat it Up)”. The track, which is available on her new album ‘Love & Happiness: Vol. 3: How Stella Got Her Groove Back’, has been criticised for the explicit nature of the lyrics and video.
