The organisers are leaving no stone unturned to make the Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) 2016 a grand success. After Wiz Khalifa, Suzy Bae and EXO's Baekhyun, the organisers have now roped in actor Yoo Ah In and rapper BewhY to perform at the Mnet Asian Music Awards.
Yoo Ah In and rapper BewhY will collaborate to perform at the award show as a part of its "CONNECTION" concept. The rep of CJ E&M confirmed the report of Yoo Ah in and BewhY's performance. "The pair is currently preparing a colorful stage that is worth anticipating," the rep said, according to Soompi.com.
The Mnet Asian Music Awards 2016 will see a galaxy of celebrities performing, including American rapper Wiz Khalifa, Suzy Bae-EXO's Baekhyun, GOT7, MONSTA X, BewhY, Taemin, Taeyeon, EXO, BTS, SEVENTEEN, GFRIEND, TWICE, I.O.I and NCT DREAM.
Talking about the Wiz Khalifa and Suzy- Baekhyun's performance, director Kang Hee Jung said that both the performances will be special this year. Khalifa will collaborate with the K-pop artists for a special performance, while Suzy- Baekhyun will perform on their hit Dream at the Mnet Asian Music Awards.
"Wiz Khalifa is a singer who topped the Billboard Singles Hot 100 Chart with his song 'Black and Yellow.' He is well-known in Korea for his song 'See You Again,' which was part of the original soundtrack of the 'Fast and Furious franchise," Director Kang Hee Jung said during a press conference, adding, "Wiz Khalifa is a recognized hip-hop icon, and he's going to be collaborating with a K-pop artist for a special performance."
"There have been so many songs this year, but rather than a simple featuring, I think two different people collaborating is beautiful. I'm looking forward to seeing the beautiful, charming pair [together on stage]," she added.
The Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) 2016 will take place in Hong Kong and fans can watch the event live at the AsiaWorld-Expo on December 2 at 8 pm KST.
