Zar Empire to celebrate anniversary with Timbaland and "King of Africa" Harare Performance [Video]

Zar Empire, a South African entertainment company with business interests in Zimbabwe will be celebrating its first anniversary
and launching their online product with exclusive perfomances by Timbaland, Lil Kim and Fat Joe on May 27 at Borrowdale Race Course in Harare.

King of Africa?
In 2009 the Terror Squad leader Fat Joe upped his royalty status from "Prince" to "King of Africa" with the release of  footage of him in Angola. While proclaiming his impact on the country, Joey Crack also indirectly joked about rap rival 50 Cent who had his jewelery stolen from him at a concert in 2008.
"Every week I'm in Africa," Joe said in a video. "I'ma start showing you sh*t you ain't ever seen in your life. All different parts of Africa. I done been to everywhere...Ghana, I done did Ghana. I live in Angola. So, you know, it's not dangerous like people say. I know people got robbed over there. I got footage of me in the barber shop, hanging in the hood, hanging out with everybody on the corner, having a great time. It's beautiful in Angola...So you know, King of Afirca man. Stay tuned, you gonna find out a lot about Africa real soon." (World Star Hip Hop)

Fif's incident took place while performing in Angola around May 2008.
50 Cent had his necklace stolen by a fan during a concert in Angola. The incident, which took place as the rapper was onstage, was captured on video by a fan. In the video, the music stops as the person grabs the necklace and climbs back into the crowd. Responding to the incident on his website, 50 said security at the concert had been "limited" and "fans were able to interact with the group onstage". Contrary to the fans video, the rapper claims his own footage of the incident shows he "pushed him off the stage and jumped into the crowd and then all hell broke loose." (Gigwise)

The artistes not yet cleared by the National Arts Council of Zimbabwe?
"They are yet to be cleared, although the promoters of the show have since submitted their papers to us for clearance of live performances by these artistes. "In the case of a foreign promoter who wants to do business in Zimbabwe, they should strike a partnership with a local promoter here," said Donald Chidoori, an official from the NACZ. It is, however, the performance by these artistes on the same show that is likely to leave lasting impressions considering that it will be a package by different artistes whose styles are unique.
