Eminem's rep said that the rapper has indeed been approached by the event organizers but nothing has been decided yet.
A big bash for African leader, Nelson Mandela is on the way as it has been reported that Eminem who has been 'behind the curtain' for several years now will appear on his 90th birthday. A celebration for Mandela is prepared to take place on June 27 in London's Hyde Park, in alignment with his AIDS charity campaign, 46664.
The Sun.co.uk reported that a publicist of the event has approached Eminem to appear on the D-Day which is expected to draw a crowd of more than 45,000 people. The rapper is hoped to help the music event raising the money for the charity. "We wanted some of the greatest artists from recent times and Eminem was on the list," the publicist said. "I contacted Eminem's management on the off-chance and never expected him to go for it."
CelebrityTruth.com has made an approach to Em's representative, Dennis Dennehy to confirm the offer. The site was told, "He's been approached but hasn't figured out yet if it can work out."
Those confirmed to take the bill are Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett Smith who are tapped to host the event and a bunch of performers like Spice Girls, U2, Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, Annie Lennox and Razorlight.
Eminem has been taking a hiatus since the release of his suggestively-titled latest album "Encore" in 2005. However, in early 2008 he confirmed that he has been hard at work for his fifth studio album.
