A viral internet hit has turned into a viable hip-hop career for Bangs, who is promising to perform in New Zealand next week.
The Sudanese-born, Australian-based rapper, whose unlikely hit Take You To Da Movies has had more than nine million views on YouTube, says he'll be performing a one-off show in Auckland next week.
He's yet to say where he's performing, which day the show's on, or how much tickets cost - but he did say he'd be "going to movies when I hit New Zealand".
He later tweeted that he'd found a venue in Auckland and would be performing a one-off show next week, with only door sales available. He later said that his flights had been booked.
Bangs has turned his unorthodox rapping style and internet success into a mildly successful career, releasing two albums through with HSM Entertainment and starring in a Honda advertisement.
