The concert will see local and international artist Diamond Platinumz hailing from Nigeria. tjil had a one-on-one interview with the multi-award winner on his sentiments about tomorrow's event.
tjil (T): We are nearing the final hours. What is going through your mind as the day gets closer?
The Dogg (TD): At this moment, I just can't wait for the public to experience what I have planned for them because this is a very special day to me.
T: How do you feel about the fact that this is literally the last show?
TD: It is really an amazing feeling, because this means more time for my family. But I'll for sure miss the whole stage action.
T: There seems to be a bit of confusion regarding the event. When you say final concert, what does that mean? Does this mean you really won't be doing music at all?
TD: Well, music has made me who I am today, and people know The Dogg because of music. No matter where I go music will always be a big part of me. My answer is 'not really' because I'll be involved in certain music-related projects. Besides, Mshasho is a record label meant to uplift young talent such as KP Illest and Young T, so there is no way I can escape music. Who knows, I might even become a mentor.
T: Planning an event of this magnitude is not easy, what are some memories you have since the first day of planning?
TD: When I first came up with the idea, only my team believed in me.
I had no sponsors, so I had to knock on people's doors looking for sponsorship, and believe it or not I got turned down many times. But with all this I kept going and praying because 29-09-18 is something very special to me, I never looked back.
Thanks to all the sponsors that came on board and all the companies that came on board… you made this a success.
T: What cool facts can you share with the fans on the concert?
TD: All I can tell you right now is that there will be a lot of surprises, so just come to the concert.
T: What would you like your fans to take away from on Saturday when they leave the stadium?
TD: Just to have fun and joy, after all we just came out of winter, so it's time to welcome summer in style. Let the music live on.
