New coming artists to look out for.

South African are very talented, it is no wonder we have so many 'under dogs' or rather undiscovered talent.

And in celebration of June being the official month dedicated to youth, we looked for artists that we think will take our country to the next level in terms of talent.

These are some of the many up coming artists, in music, fine art, dance, clothing designs and poetry that we found.
