UK-based Milad Raza Qadri, a Sufi singer, and Ahmad Hussain, also from the UK, sign autographs for local fans Raeesa Dladla, Adam Patel, Yusuph Kadoo and Irfan Sayeed during the Al Ansaar International Family Souk (bazaar) held at the Exhibition Centre in Durban yesterday. Qadri has perfomed all over the world. Hussain has performed in China, Turkey, Morocco and the U.S. with the likes of Attalah Shahbaaz, Oulandish and Native Deen. The souk, now in its 15th year, attracts thousands of people to browse 300 stalls with merchandise from local and overseas sellers, including jewellery, textiles, food, spices, perfumes and household commodities. It also has a food court, live entertainment, competitions and lots of other activities for the family. The bazaar runs until January 1.
