Ludacris to Perform at Nelson Mandela’s 46664 AIDS Benefit Concert in South Africa

Ludacris has signed on to perform at former South African president Nelson Mandela’s 46664 AIDS benefit concert on December 1 in Johannesburg. The concert is the fifth to be held since Mandela founded the 46664 organization in 2002, taking the name from the prison number he was assigned during his 27 year incarceration on Robben Island. This year marks the first time the show will be held on World AIDS day. Luda will join other international artists such as Corinna Bailey Rae, Peter Gabriel, and The Goo-Goo Dolls, as well as local South African performers. “The 46664 message is one that needs to be heard in every corner of our country, and indeed, the world,” a 46664 spokesman said in a press release. “These artists between them reach into every one of our communities—upholding Mr. Mandela’s message that HIV AIDS is not a local issue, but a universal one.”
