The musician, rapper, singer, and record producer, who is best known as co-founder and member of the Grammy Award-winning group will be performing a DJ Set at The St. Regis Doha set to attract around 2,000 fans.
“Knowing that apl.de.ap has a massive fan base in Qatar with chart-topping hit songs, we expect about 2,000 people to enjoy the show,” Enrica Barbagallo, Managing Partner of Amazing Productions, who is organizing the concert, told The Peninsula.
She said the event was something they had planned for quite some time and on which apl.de.ap expressed excitement to perform for his fans here for the first time.
With a music career spanning around two decades, apl.de.ap has contributed to the music industry writing, co-writing and performing songs that made to the top of the charts such as Where is the Love, I Gotta Feeling, The Apl Song, and Bebot. Some of these songs will be part of his repertoire during the 90-minute show.
Apl.de.ap, who is also famous for his coaching stints in The Voice of the Philippines, has been a known philanthropist honoured by the prestigious This Time Foundation for his charity works. He founded the Apl Foundation helping communities and children in the Philippines and other Asian countries.
