The musician, born Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar, is one of the most sought-after female hip hop artistes as she successfully challenged the dominance of Nicki Minaj in that genre.

The event called Livespot X Festival is organized by Nigerian Media Company, Livespot360. The concert will also feature an exciting array of talents from Africa who will perform alongside Cardi B.

Premium patrons will get to experience all the up close and personal moments with the artistes, while having access to their choice of beverages and refreshments.

Deep-throat sources have also hinted Face2Face Africa that Beyoncé has plans of celebrating Christmas in Ghana with her family come December. There are also rumours she may be performing at a show.

In a tweet via, @Beyoncehivenews, Beyoncé has projects in Ghana on December 26th but failed to detail what the exact project was.

This year, 2019 has been declared, “Year of Return” by the Ghanaian government in commemoration of 400 years since the first African slaves arrived in what is, today, the U.S.

It was launched last year in Washington, D.C., by Ghana’s President Nana Akufo-Addo, for Africans in the diaspora to visit the West African country.
