THE Goldfields Casino is gearing up for a show to remember, featuring four of South Africa’s top acts all on one stage on 4 July. Music lovers in the Welkom area can look forward to seeing Snotkop, Lianie May, Joe Foster and Johnny Apple perform live in concert at this unique entertainment venue.

Goldfields’ marketing manager, Sibongile Tantsi, says hosting these four acts on one stage is incredibly exciting for Goldfields, adding “fans cannot afford to miss this live one-night-only show”.

Francois Henning better known by his stage name Snotkop, previously known as Lekgoa, is a well-known Afrikaans and Sotho language singer and rapper. He started his music career at age 15 and in the late 1990s adopted the stage name Lekgoa singing in the South African kwaito genre of music. By 2012 he became one of the top-selling South African artists in Africa in the Afrikaans language.

Snotkop was nominated for nine MK, Tempo and Vonk Awards, notably Best Afrikaans Pop album. In 2009, he was nominated for South African Music Awards in the category Best Afrikaans DVD during the 15th annual awards. In 2012, Snotkop won the Best Sokkie Dans Album award for his album Ek Laaik Van Jol during the 18th South African Music Awards.

May is a South African country, rock, pop singer, songwriter and actress who launched her career in 2007 with her debut album Vergeet My Nie and is best known for her song Soen My Nie Meer Nie.

May is an Afrikaans songstress musically renowned for her voice which has been compared to country greats Shania Twain and Dolly Parton.

Foster, as former member of the band Adam, now has a solo career with his voice behind the recent theme song of one of the most talked about and highly-rated Afrikaans films of 2014, Pad na jou hart.

May discovered his love for singing at a very young age. His mother was a music teacher and taught him to play the piano before he went to school.

Since then he has aspired to become a singer and producer and right now he is living that dream.

Johnny Apple – real name Juan Appelgrein – is an Randamp;B vocalist from George, and winner of SA’s Got Talent 2013. His first single, Monday Night, was co-written with Flash Republic’s Tamara Day and South African songwriter André Scheepers. He is proudly known as South Africa’s version of pop star Justin Bieber.

Tickets are available from Computic-ket and the Goldfields’ Customer Service Desk at R150 per ticket.

Doors open at 19:00. For more information on forthcoming shows please visit or call 057-391-5700
