PHUTHADITJHABA. – The University of the Free State’s (UFS) Qwaqwa Campus hosted the Arts Extravaganza at the Nelson Mandela Hall on Friday (18/09). The event was graced by the well-known afro pop group Mafikizolo. According to Thabo Kessah, campus communication specialist, the event was aimed at promoting art on the campus.

“This event was meant to promote student talent and give them the opportunity to share the stage with well-established artists in the industry. All the curtain raisers were students discovered during the annual UFS Got Talent contest,” he said. He said even though the event had been hosted at the campus the community was also invited to the event because the university belonged to them. “With just a week after the successful Dipontsho tsa Maluti-a-Phofung Show, we decided to organise this extravaganza to thank the community for being with us in difficult times. Remember that last year this time we were out in search of our student who went missing and the community was behind us. “We called Mafikizolo because it is a popular group to be part of the event. Their music cuts across the bigger spectrum of listenership and has a huge following,” Kessah said. Amongst the artists and groups who participated at the UFS Extravaganza were the winners of the 2015 UFS Got Talent and the Untouchables. The following artists also got the opportunity to share the stage with Mafikizolo – Happy Feet, the Unspoken, Nastar, Boity B and Jefferson
