American rapper Tyga to make his debut performance in India
American rapper Tyga is all set to perform in India on April 20, which will be his maiden visit to the country. The 28-year-old Grammy-nominated artiste is bringing his world tour to promote his newly-released album "Kyoto" to New Delhi for a headlining show. Tyga said he always wanted to perform in India and is eager to explore the locales of the country.
Always wanted to tour in India: Tyga
"I have always wanted to tour in India, the sounds of sights of the country are so fascinating, the food and culture so vibrant, I have seen pictures...heard a lot from my friends who've visited before and I've heard the music industry is one to watch out for," Tyga said. "I might also do some sightseeing if I have the time," he added.
Really excited to attend the event in India
"I'm really excited to attend the event curated by White Fox India as well as perform my new album, Kyoto, for all my fans," Tyga said. He's expected to perform tracks such as "AYO", "Rack City", "Still Got It", "Temperature" during his first India tour, which will also showcase his melodic 14-track concept album including guest appearances from Gucci Mane, Tory Lanez, and 24Hrs.
Rise in the popularity of hip-hop, reason behind bringing Tyga
The event is being managed by White Fox India and the pop-up is sponsored by Absolut Elyx. Arjun Jain, Founder, White Fox India, said the rise in the popularity of hip-hop and rap is the main reason behind bringing the artiste to India.
Demand for hip-hop in India is quite overwhelming
"Personally I've always been a huge aficionado of hip-hop and rap and the demand for this genre in India is quite overwhelming but remains largely untapped." "It will be an exclusive event in the form of a luxury pop up night where fans can avail the opportunity of getting up close with the artist as well as have a more intimate experience," Jain said.
