SOUTH African rapper, Kwesta, and gospel star, Thobekile Mkhwanazi, will headline the Royal Vuma Sunday Mix at the Royal Agricultural Showgrounds in Pietermaritzburg­ from 2pm to 5pm on Sunday, 29 May.

The concert is being hosted by the Royal Show, in conjunction with Vuma 103FM.

Kwesta (real name Senzo Mfundo Vilakazi) released his debut studio album Special Rekwest in September 2010. He followed this in November 2013 with DaKAR (Da King of Afrikan Rap), which debuted on the South African iTunes hip-hop-rap chart at number three. Only Eminem’s Marshall Mathers LP II and Drake’s Nothing Was the Same had a higher entry.

Kwesta’s third studio album DaKAR II was released on 26 February and features three singles, Nomayini, Ngud, which features guest vocals from Cassper Nyovest, and K1 God.

KZN-born, Mkhwanazi’s song, Wonderful Day, was nominated for two SABC Crown Gospel Awards last year in the categories of best traditional and best song of the year.

Also on the bill are DJ Sox, DJ Andre, Linda “The Game” Ndimande and the Msizi Shembe.

Tony Mallam, managing director of Vuma FM, said the concert would be “an inspirational family affair”, hosted by Vuma FM’s Kwasa Breakfast Show presenter, Linda “Mr Magic” Sibya.

“We are excited to be partnering once again with the Royal Show for what promises to be an afternoon filled with the best in inspirational music that is reflective of what we play on Vuma 103FM,” he added.

“We are about inspiring KwaZulu-Natal through our music and our content, and that is exactly what audiences can expect at this concert – they are guaranteed to feel inspired and uplifted through a selection of music that includes some gospel, house music, old skool classics as well as a variety of current hits.”

Entry to the Royal Show, from 27 May 27 to 5 June is R60 for adults and R40 for children under 12 and pensioners. Entry is R40 for everyone on Wednesday, 1 June.
