The 053 Concert is three weeks away and Kimberley is already buzzing with excitement.

The organising team of Manaka Productions has redefined its strategy and process around building this event and making sure it stays true to its supporters. From start to finish, the event is built to take the audience through an unforgettable experience.

The well-curated line-up includes local and national artists, such as Smiso Zwane. Zwane was born on 27 July 1983 and is commonly known by his stage name, Okmalumkoolkat. He is a South African rapper and half of the rap and electronic duo Dirty Paraffin.

Zwane is known for performing in Cassper Nyovest’s “Gusheshe” and for his single “Mswenkofontein” featuring $tilo Magolide and uSanele.

With Okmalumkoolkat as the headline artist, the show promises to be nothing short of pure entertainment.

He is joined by Thuli Phongolo (DJ Thuli P), known for her role as Namhla on Generations The Legacy and a popular club DJ, according to her social media profile.

Thuli has made a name for herself as an actress and presenter. She is also currently the ambassador for the international hair care product Cantu.

She has modelled for renowned designers such as Khosi Nkosi and Scalo.

The artists will be supported by a group of well-selected local artists, such as Tumelo Tawane, better known as DJ Calypsoul of the Kimberley Boys’ High School and chief executive officer of TawaneTrading.

The young man has shared the stage with the likes of Cassper Nyovest, Reason, DJ Fresh and Nasty C, just to mention a few.

Bridget Morwe, recently reinvented as B Reigns and referred to as the Kimberley queen of rap, believes the 053 Concert will be an amazing platform for her career, as it will showcase her musicality to a whole new crowd.

“Sharing a stage with national artists is every local artist’s dream, because it means you’re one step closer,” said B Reigns.

“The event is a unique show that allows the audience to escape reality and our goal is constant growth, continued awareness around our brand and creating a connection with our audience,” said Samantha Oor, the creative director of Manaka Productions.

“Hence we aim to connect with our audience through their passionate pursuits, because music is a powerful connective medium.”
