Pharrell Williams has already made history for being one of the most successful and prolific producers to emerge during the last decade. As part of the beat-making duo The Neptunes, Pharrell and his partner Chad Hugo have helped A-List pop stars sell millions of albums and win Grammy Awards. While producers are typically faceless, behind-the-scenes types, Pharrell has managed to become a star in his own right. It is usually his voice behind the infectious choruses for his hits, and his handsome face has been known to steal scenes in the accompanying music videos. He is also a member of the Grammy award winning, alternative rock trio N.E.R.D., the fly-or-die, thrash-around, set-your-soul-on-fire, alter-ego offspring of the Neptunes. N.E.R.D (No One Ever Really Dies) has released two critically acclaimed, platinum albums, “In Search Of…” and “Fly Or Die”. The Neptunes’ credits have included everyone from Ol’ Dirty Bastard, No Doubt, Janet, Britney Spears, *NSYNC, TLC, Usher, Mary J. Blige, Toni Braxton, Kelis, Busta Rhymes, Babyface, Mariah Carey and Justin Timberlake. 

In addition to his well-known hits, Pharrell will also be performing a selection of his N.E.R.D. chartbusters like “Rock Star” and “She Wants to Move” during his performances at the upcoming Peoples Celebration Concert. 

The continuous ten-hour world-class event is the first of its kind in the country, and will be filmed by SABC 1 for broadcast, reaching 23 million people across South Africa.
