NBA Announces Afrobeats-focused Lineup for All-Star Game Halftime Show.
The NBA All-Star Weekend is one of the biggest sporting events in the world, but it's not just about basketball. This year's event will feature a star-studded lineup of performers, with an Afrobeats-focused halftime show set to steal the show. Burna Boy, Tems, and Rema, all Nigerian stars, are set to headline the halftime show in Utah this Sunday.
Post Malone is also scheduled to perform a medley of his songs during the first arena-hosted All-Star Draft. Meanwhile, Vin Diesel, who's set to star in "Fast X," will be the host for the night, announcing the All-Star game players.
Last year's All-Star game in Cleveland saw the likes of Mary J. Blige, Ludacris, Lil Wayne, Migos, Gunna, and Lil Baby taking the stage. Along with the halftime show performance and the All-Star Game, Utah is set to host other musicians such as Janelle Monae, 21 Savage, Cordae, Ozuna, Kane Brown, Nicky Jam, and others for the festivities leading up to the game.
This year's All-Star Weekend is shaping up to be a celebration of music and basketball, with some of the biggest names in both fields coming together to entertain the crowds. It's a reminder that sports and music have always been intertwined and have the power to bring people together from all walks of life.
