DJ Papa G opened the stage with a melodically house music which warmed up the crowd which was followed by singing word for word. On the set, Daxton followed the latter then Jimmy Wiz played his set before the battle of the DJ’s competition commenced. On the battle, 7 contestants had to face off for the prize, Deep Sijadu opened the battle and to close it off was DJ Anza who did justice to it.
From the special guest appearance, Okmalumkoolkat started to grace the stage with his swanky style, he brought everyone together and danced to the crowd. He performed his latest song, “GQI” from his recent album “Mlazi Milano” everyone sang word for word. The Gqi hitmaker thanked the crowd for supporting his music and to performance on such a prestigious night after we had just celebrated Freedom Day country wide.
