Dadju, Lartiste, Aminux, L7or, and Mohamed Ramadan are also set to perform at the “Stars in the Place” concert on December 29.
Rabat – French-Congolese superstar Maitre Gims is set to bring a free concert to Marrakech’s iconic Jemaa El Fna on Sunday, December 29. This year’s “Stars in the Place” concert will be the third of its kind.
The 33-year-old artist has held free end-of-the-year concerts in the square since 2017.
“It is a source of pride for us to organize an event that aims to bring messages of peace, love and brotherhood,” Gims beamed in a press release, according to Hespress.
“[The concert] is our way of expressing to King Mohammed VI and to all Moroccans our love for Morocco and its people, and our desire to contribute to the great economic and social dynamic that the country is experiencing,” adds the statement from Gims and his artistic director Youssef Aarab.
The concert, hosted by Moroccan radio icon Momo, will also feature performances by Dadju, Lartiste, Aminux, L7or, Mohamed Ramada, and DJ Red Supa.
The rapper’s love for Morocco and its culture is nurtured by his large Moroccan fan base and friendship with King Mohammed VI.
