Scheduled to heat up Dubai in his first visit to the Middle East, basketball legend Kobe Bryant’s Weekend Celebrity game will see American rapper Soulja Boy and American football cornerback Kelly Errin Herndon take to the court, it was announced on Sunday.

Announced last week, the “Kobe Bryant Health & Fitness Weekend” in support of diabetes awareness, is set to take place at the American University in Dubai.

The two-day health and fitness program will run from Sept. 26 to 27.

The 23-year-old Soulja Boy, known for his hit single “Crank That,” is no stranger to celebrity basketball games having taken part in the BET (Black Entertainment Television) game held in Los Angeles this summer.

Herndon broke the Super Bowl record for the longest return of an interception during a game he played for the Seattle Seahawks.
