Hip-hop superstar Wiz Khalifa, Grammy Award-winning rapper Young Thug and renowned producer DJ Snake will take to the stage on Friday to bring the curtain down on Dakar Saudi Arabia 2020’s epic grand finale.

Khalifa will be making his debut in Saudi Arabia to perform some of his biggest hits, including “Black and Yellow,” “We Dem Boys” and “See You Again,” which reigned at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 12 non-consecutive weeks.

He has performed with some of the biggest names in the music industry, including Snoop Dog, 50 Cent, Wu-Tang Clan and Fallout Boy. 

Young Thug, best known for his eccentric vocal style and fashion sense, will take the crowds on a journey of his scintillating melodies with songs including “Best Friend,” “Hot” and “This is America.” He rose to fame after featuring on the 2017 hit song “Havana” by pop singer Camila Cabello, which reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in January 2018, becoming his first No. 1 single.

DJ Snake will bring a catalogue of his infectious hits to the Kingdom, including “Magenta Riddim,” “Get Low” and “Taki Taki,” his famed collaboration featuring Selena Gomez.
