BET award winner Sho Madjozi urged lovers of her music to buy tickets in large numbers and to come and enjoy her music during the eighth Phalaphala FM Royal Heritage Festival on at the Nandoni Royal Garden on 14 September.
Another well-known songbird, Makhadzi, said she was gearing up for an energetic performance. “All I can say is that I’m always unique when it comes to performance. I will go all out. Even when it comes to outfits, my performance will be fire,” she said. “I gym every day, even weekends, in the morning and the evening. I have a personal trainer and she makes sure I don’t gain weight.”
She said that the event had grown by leaps and bounds and had firmly placed the province on the entertainment map. She also received a lot of love from locals, though she said many people from outside the province who did not understand Tshivenda liked her music.
Speaking about his performance at the show, rumba artist Zozo said that the show was very special to him. “We are very prepared for this event. I will perform most of my music that has stood the test of time, and I will be dishing out many of my old songs, as well as some of the new favourites.”
The event organiser, Mr Shandukani Nesengani, said really big improvements had been made, compared to the previous shows in terms of security and entry to the venue, among others. "Revellers should rest assured it will be the best show ever and all our artists have promised their all for the event, " he said.
He warned those buying tickets on the black market that they should not waste their time by coming to the venue as they would not be allowed inside. The tickets are R220 per person for both the gospel and heritage festival.
