Capleton ‘King Shango' rocks Joburg

It was one of those rare scenes at the Bassline in Newtown over the weekend. Rastafarians came from as far as Cape Town and Bloemfontein to witness King Shango perform,  for the very first time, right in front of their eyes.

As expected of any Rastafarian gathering, Marijuana was also a big part of the event. It took a bit of waiting before the main act himself walked on to the stage but in the meantime Nkulee who is the daughter of slain reggae legend, Lucky Dube, brought the house down doing some of her father’s reggae classics, Prisoner and Feel Irie.

When the King finally came on, he did not disappoint. It was more like a sing along concert. Performing songs that most great followers knew. People stretched their hands to try to touch him; some took video footages with their phones. It seemed as though everyone wanted to have a piece of Shango.

It was a great show overall. We are all looking forward to Shango’s next visit to the country.
