Desiigner Performing At White Dubai This Weekend

US rapper Desiigner is heading to Dubai this Friday, 19th October, performing at Meydan’s nightlife hotspot White Dubai.

Prominent in the rap game since ‘Panda’

Remember the rap song ‘Panda’? Sidney Royel Selby III, aka Desiigner rose to stardom with the smash-hit single in 2016, amassing 449 million views to date and peaked at No. 1 on Billboard’s ‘Hot 100.’ Since his debut, the 21-year old remains a mainstay in the rap game, with hits like ‘Timmy Turner,’ ‘Outlet’ and ‘Price Tag.’ He even earned a Grammy nomination last year for the ‘Best Rap Performance.’

White Dubai set to welcome Desiigner

Since his Dubai debut last year, Desiigner has been a known figure in Dubai’s party scene, performing twice at Dubai Design District’s superclub Base Dubai last December and after the Dubai World Cup last March. His gig at White Duba’s weekly ‘Bizaaar’ night follows with support from White Dubai’s resident DJs Chabz and Mocky.

Busy week for party people at White Dubai

Before Desiigner’s gig, White Dubai is kicking off the weekend in style with French rapper Maître Gims performing on Thursday, 18th October. The 32-year old rapper was a former member of French Hip-Hop group Sexion d’Assaut and established a successful solo career, with hit singles ‘Mi Gna,’ ‘Bella’ and ‘Est-ce que tu m’aimes?’ alongside collaborations with A-lister rappers Lil Wayne and French Montana.
