South African hip-hop heavyweights Nasty C and Tellaman have been announced as two of the latest additions to the upcoming Essence Festival line-up. Performing at the festival will be yet another stride in both artists’ mission to assert themselves in both the local and global hip-hop community.

His most recent contribution is the full-length album God Decides, released on 1 February 2019.

2019 marks the 25th anniversary of Essence festival. To match the occasion, organizers have planned an unrivaled line-up of musical acts. Known as ‘Party with a Purpose,’ the Essence Festival aims to offer guests a busy and unforgettable weekend.

Other musicians set to take the stage are Missy Elliot, Mary J. Bige, Nas, H.E.R, Pharrell Williams and Teyana Taylor.
