Rapper Wiz Khalifa to perform at Isle of MTV

Multi-platinum selling rapper Wiz Khalifa will be taking part at this year’s Isle of MTV Malta, being held on June 28.

The free live music event, which is now in its 10th consecutive year, is a partnership between MTV and the Malta Tourism Authority.

Rolling Stone magazine’s 2006 ‘Artist to watch’, Khalifa shot to international fame in 2011 with his debut album Rolling Papers, which included hit singles Roll Up, No Sleep and Black and Yellow.

The latter peaked at number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 and entered the Top 10 of the UK singles chart.

Wiz’s biggest hit to date, the 2015 global smash See You Again, was the lead single from the Furious 7 soundtrack and a tribute to the late actor Paul Walker.

The single peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for 12 consecutive weeks, and hit the top spot on charts across 95 countries.

The song broke several records including most streamed track in a single day on Spotify and was nominated for three Grammy Awards. His latest studio album is planned for release this summer.

Isle of MTV Malta will be filmed and edited into a 60-minute special that will broadcast across 20 MTV channels throughout Europe. The show will also be supported across all MTV social media platforms as well as via a bespoke website.

Over the nine years that Isle of MTV has been held in Malta, the number of visitors to the island younger than 24 has increased by 120 per cent and now account for 20 per cent of all tourists.
