The Prince’s Trust
Nokia Urban Music festival has canceled one of two shows being planned this weekend,
due to poor ticket sales, despite adding Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff to the current
powerhouse line up.
In addition to Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff, De La Soul, Jon
B., Akon, Common and Faith Evans are confirmed to perform with Xzibit hosting,
with support from UK acts Estelle, Floetry, Black Twang, Sway, beat boxer killa
kela and others.
Lil’ Jon & The Eastside Boyz were scheduled to perform,
but according to published reports, the group will not perform for unknown reasons.
Organized by the Prince’s Trust, the show was originally supposed
to be spread over two days – Saturday 16th – Sunday 17th April 2005.
The Prince’s Trust will feature workshops, exhibits and interactive
zones and was set up to aid those who have been in trouble with the law, struggled
at school or who have suffered long term unemployment.
Previous guests have included Jay-Z and Russell Simmons.
