Lil' Kim was cold as ice this past winter at Rockit for her Nicki Minaj diss; now she has her sights set on Club 57's stage for a scorching summer kick-off. Kim will invade FV's Saturday night sensation on June 11th, particularly eager to join forces with New York nightlife icon and FornabaioVoss regular, Amanda Lepore. A thoughtful pairing at the artist's request; it was in fact Amanda Lepore whose tracks inspired Lil' Kim most during her stint behind bars in 2005.
In addition to many of Kim's chart dominators, expect a special collaboration of Lepore's, "Champagne" for Tony and Brandon's devoted slew of night crawlers. (source: broadwayworld.com)

The Cape Town and Durban ZAR Fest concerts have been cancelled.
American hip-hop and R&B artists Ciara, Lil Kim and Fat Joe are in South Africa to perform at the events organized by controversial businessman Kenny Kunene.
Kunene said while the Friday concert at Johannesburg's Coca Cola Dome is still going ahead, he has pulled the plug on the two others.
“Before I’m an entertainer I’m a businessman. When we looked at the numbers in Cape Town and Durban as of yesterday end of business, we realized that there’s absolutely no way we are going to reach our target,” he said. (source: eyewitnessnews.co.za)

Lil Kim steals the show in Zimbabwe
(nehandaradio.com by Melody Gwenyambira) PLATINUM ALBUM holder and rapper Lil Kim, real name Kimberly Denise Jones, stole the show at the Zarfest’ Africa’s biggest hip hop night held on Saturday. Making her maiden stage appearance at the Borrowdale Race Course Lil Kim or “Queen Bee”, as she is affectionately called showed that she is a force to reckon with and even gave some male rappers a good run for their money.
Queen Bee took some time to salute the late Notorious B.I.G and both the male and female specie, “When I was in South Africa I saw a lot of good looking men. Now I am in Zimbabwe I am seeing a lot of handsome men. I love you Zimbabwe!” she screamed out. The pint sized emcee even invited some young locals onto the stage as a way of showing her appreciation,
“You know I am from Brooklyn, home of the greatest rappers. Now there is a song by my boy Jay Z and Alicia Keys about New York. The same song I am going to ask my friends to sing about Zimbabwe. A place where dreams are made and where lights inspire you,” Lil Kim continued. The fans who were all young adults joined Queen B and the Race Course exploded into, “Zimbabwe concrete jungle where dreams are made of. These streets will make you feel brand new.”
Backed by her Dee jay, two backing vocalists and two female dancers Lil Kim gave a mind blowing performance before and after fellow rappers Fat Joe and Ciara respectively. Her costume cannot go without mention. The military style red bolero was complimented by a military cap and a piece (or lingerie rather) that left men drooling.
