Many residents of Limpopo and its outskirts are gearing up for the annual Mapungubwe Festival at the Polokwane Cricket Club tomorrow (Saturday).
Last Saturday, the youth festival went well and attracted many music lovers.
This Saturday’s event is regarded as the main festival and, according to the organisers, it is one of the premier cultural events depicting music and lifestyle events in the province.
The festival will host some of the biggest names in the South African talent pool, including some of the best artists that Limpopo has to offer. The MEC for Sports Arts and Culture, Thandi Moraka, added that “the festival has been the apple of our eyes, seeing its growth and how it had placed Polokwane on the map, has been fulfilling. Nothing beats the unity of the people of Limpopo as they have been welcoming and enjoying with us all these years”.
According to her, Limpopo is the heartbeat of the nation when it came to minerals and music. “This is the perfect place to set yourself free, let loose to the biggest and best sounds from African acts across the board.”
Setting the stage alight will be: Dr Colbert Mukwevho, Shekinah, Jonas Gwangwa, King Monada, Benny Mayengani, Makhadzi, Dr Oliver Mtukudzi, Dr Malinga, Lady Zamor, Joe Shirimani, Benny Mayengani, Steve Kekana, Selaelo Selota, Sipho “Hotstix” Mabuza and many more.
Tickets are available at R100 at Computicket.
Makhadzi is expected to be a crowd puller.
