This follows an emergency medical procedure on his left eye in September, which requires several weeks of rest for post-operative healing. As a result, Masekela will not be able to engage in performances or extensive travel until the end of October.
Massive management’s Lloyd Cornwall says the festival organisers are naturally disappointed that Hugh Masekela will not be able to be part of this year's fantastic line-up, which includes other several high profile international and local artists. “We understand that Hugh’s health takes priority and we wish him a speedy recovery in the weeks ahead.”
Cornwall assures festival-goers that the line-up for the festival is superb with international music giants such as Common, John Leee, Alexander O'Neal, Omar, Soul II Soul and Femi Kuti expected thrill audiences. “We also have an incredible line-up of local performers including Bongo Maffin and TKZee, Thandiswa Mazwai and Black Coffee.
“We urge the public not to miss out on this awesome two-day event. Tickets are available at www.deliciousfestival.com and there will also be loads of delicious food on offer as well as excellent entertainment for the younger members of the family.”
