Durban - The eThekwini Municipality has given hip-hop star, Cassper Nyovest free use of the iconic football stadium for his much-hyped #FillUpMosesMabhida concert next month.
The city confirmed the deal on Thursday.
When the concert was announced earlier this month, there were unconfirmed reports that the city was giving Nyovest R56 million as a contribution.
Having heard about the supposed contribution, for the event, the Federation For Radical Economic Transformation and one of its affiliates Amadelangokubona Business Forum confronted the city, demanding to know how this huge amount of money could be given to one artist while local artists and events organisers never got such large amounts.
The Federation spoke to various senior officials including the city manager and discovered that the reports were inaccurate and that there was only a proposal for sponsorship and no decision was made.
