The Dogg's long-awaited This Is It concert and charity cup is finally taking place tomorrow at the Unam stadium.

The concert is anticipated to be one of the biggest events in the country and will see an audience of over 12 000 in attendance as unity is created among old and new artists in the country.

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.
