One of the rising stars of RnB will headline a special event to celebrate The Act’s birthday on May 17.

Kwabs, whose hit ‘Walk’ has been viewed 50,000,000 times on YouTube, will help put the cherry on the cake for the world’s highest theatre club, which turns two later this month. The Londoner will perform an exclusive acoustic set.

Having been schooled at the Royal Academy of Music, where he undertook a four-year jazz degree, the 24-year-old spent three years as lead singer of the National Youth Jazz Orchestra before truly breaking through last year with a sell-out show at one of London’s more intimate venue, Koko.

Kwabs to perform live in Dubai

Real name Kwabena Sarkodee Adjepong, Kwabs’ debut album, ‘Love + War’, will be released in September, and has already been installed as favourite to land the Mercury prize next year.

As well as Brit’s soulful tunes, a series of never-before-seen acts will take to the stage for what is being described as the pinnacle of ‘two years of  extravagant parties, jaw-dropping entertainment and award- winning cuisine’.

Guests can enjoy the fixed-price menu from Dhs395.
