Hip-hop mogul and entrepreneur Russell Simmons is heading to South Africa.
Mr Simmons will visit the country in September as a speaker for the next Destiny Forum event.
Khanyi Dhlomo, CEO of Ndalo Media and founding editor of Ndalo’s Destiny and Destiny Man magazines, says her group is honoured to be hosting the prominent international businessperson.
As co-founder of the pioneering record label Def Jam in the 1980s, he helped launch the careers of several artists, including Run-DMC and the Beastie Boys. His empire includes the Phat Farm clothing line and an energy drink, but it’s his social activism that’s caused some to speculate that he’d make an ideal Mayor of New York City.
Simmons will be presenting on Friday, 21 September 2012 at Johannesburg’s Hilton Sandton Hotel and is brought to you in association with M-Net and City Press.
Tickets cost R850 (including VAT) per person, which includes cocktail dinner and an after-party with Tumi and The Volume.
