If you live in and around Braamfontein and did not attend Castle Lites’ Extra Cold Live Concert on Saturday (08.06.13) we sincerely hope you’ve got a good reason! However, if you did attend the concert then props to you because this was the COLDEST and LIVEST Johannesburg concert since Kanye Wests’ Sub-Zero Experience earlier this year.
The Johannesburg concert was a pure success and the line-up was legendary. Upcoming rapper Siya Shezi blew us away with such songs like Tshwala, delivering potent rhymes during his freestyles that had the crowd gasping with every line he dropped. Skinny-boy Kwesta definitely showed us why he’s dubbed “Mr-Cool” after he performed hits such as Take That and Boom Shakalaka.
Rapper AKA did a superb job as MC for the night; his interaction with the crowd was well received but the most memorable moment was when he asked the crowd, “Are you guys ready for DJ Zinhle?” An enthusiastic group of girls near the stage said something which brought a smile to his face…Hmmm we can only imagine what they had to say!
Speaking about DJ Zinhle, she seemed to really enjoy her performance with Lulo Café as the two were spotted chatting and dancing along to their set. Another collaboration that blew our minds was the F.Eu team consisting of DJ Fresh and Euphonik…Need we say more about these two musical geniuses?
Other Zalebs who made an appearance at the event included Selimathunzi’s Lunga Shabalala, Poppy Ntshongwana and Andile Ncube. ZAlebs also bumped into comedian Trevor Gumbi.
Castle Lite clearly proved that it hosts the best concerts and parties around. Thank you Castle Lite!
