Zakiso music festival

So we've heard your requests for us to keep you updated with the latest events happening in and around your city.

One of the most talked about shows as of late, besides the SAMAs of course, is the Zakifo Music Festival headlined by Damien Marley.

As reggae fans build up excitement in witnessing one of the most revered reggae artists in the world tear up the stage, Joburg fans are in for a treat this Friday night.

Damien Marley has announced that he'll be blessing Joburgers with a show tonight (26 May 2017) at the Groove Live in Newtown.

Doors open at 19:00pm so are we seeing you there?


Durban, we know you tend to complain about nice things never coming your way but at least you guys are going to be enjoying the Zakifo Festival for three whole days from the 26th to the 28th of May.

Damien Marley will be bringing on stage the likes of Thandiswa Mazwai, Ray Phiri The Soil, Nova Twins and more on stage, it's about to get seriously lit. Literally and figuratively.

And last but definitely not least all roads lead to Sun City for the SAMAs set to air tomorrow night.

We have no doubt that the whole of Jozi and some parts of South Africa will or have already flocked to Rusty Dusty (Rustenberg) for a night that promises to bring much joy to not only music lovers but to musicians as well. After all, they have been working their butts off to ensure we're kept entertained on the dance floor.

If there's any event you need to be attending this weekend it's definitely the Zakifo Music Festival and the South African Music Awards so join us as we party until the sun comes up.
