Ikapa Live invites revellers

2015-06-25 06:00

The Ikapa Live will host its tenth edition of the Ikasi Experience - a township market celebrating local culture and diversity.

The event is aimed at empowering the community by creating a platform for local business to grow and engage with potential consumers.

It also targets to encourage an inter-cultural environment, conversely extending urban boundaries and interactively enhancing township perception on economic activity.

This brainchild of Cape Town duo, Loyiso Mdebuka and Vincent Manzini started in 2012 as a means of helping local vendors to exposing their goods and services to an array of both national and international visitors.

“The event was established mainly to give platform to township entrepreneurs. As we know there is a lot of informal business in the township which is not being given a proper platform. This way, entrepreneurs are given that platform to showcase their work and make money from it. The main aim is purely to bring buyers and sellers under one roof for the benefit of both parties,” said Mdebuka.

On its tenth offering, the Ikasi Experience can only be bigger and better. It promises a day filled with entertainment and performances by both local and national acts such as; Sir Vincent, Dj Loyd, Uno July, Lukhanyo Marimba Band, Stoan Dance Group, Mshayi and Ms Eve to name a few.

There are prizes up for grabs for those who will participate in the features of the experience. The experience has features such as; Ikasi had talent, Ikasi bright ideas and of course Ikasi Diski.
