Rapper Sean Michael Anderson, known as Big Sean, is headed to South Africa for a one-night only performance on Saturday February 1 2014, at Gallagher Estate in Johannesburg.

Big Sean – known for his hit songs My Last, featuring Chris Brown, and Beware – moved into the spotlight after signing to Kanye West’s record label GOOD Music in 2007 and then with Def Jam Recordings in 2008.

The rapper's sophomore album Hall of Fame dropped in August, which sold 72 000 copies in its first week of release.

This year Big Sean received two Grammy nominations for Mercy, his collaboration with West, Pusha T and 2 Chainz. He also won the 2012 BET Award for Best New Artist.

Kendrick Lamar
In February next year, rapper Kendrick Lamar is set to perform a three-city tour in South Africa.

The tour, originally scheduled for November, was postponed to 2014 following Lamar’s decision to join West on his North America tour to promote West’s latest album Yeezus.

The Poetic Justice rapper will be at Wavehouse in Durban on February 28, Johannesburg Stadium on March 1 and the Bellville Velodrome in Cape Town on March 2014.
