Eminem will make a comeback with a performance at Nelson Mandela's 90th birthday bash this summer.
He will perform at the former South African president's concert on June 27 in London's Hyde Park.
He will share a bill which includes acts like Stevie Wonder, Annie Lennox, Keane and Razorlight.
The event, which has been organised by Queen rocker, Brian May is said to have approached Eminem's management in an off-chance that he might perform.
A source said: "We're amazed to have Eminem on board. We wanted some of the greatest artists from recent times and Eminem was on the list."
The set list is yet to be discussed, but it is unlikely to include anything controversial.
The source added: "I know Eminem's lyrics are always at the centre of controversy but people forget he did actually sing with Elton John at the Grammys."
We refuse to lose, you refuse to lose, I donít give a fuck where your from, Lets refuse to lose, thereís a whole system setup to deny our culture, and belittle us and we say fuck that, we individuals, everybody in this mutharfucka today. We must love each other, love ourselves, knowledge is self, understanding is wisdom.
