During the early stages of the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown, the entertainment industry came to a complete standstill as venues were closed, events were cancelled and the sale of alcohol was prohibited.
And while lockdown parties and live streams kept Mzansi entertained, only a few DJs, singers and music artists were able to an income. Most had to dive into their savings to get them through lockdown levels 5 to 2.
Local rapper Cassper Nyovest said he continued to pay his staff during this period, while AKA, who has been very vocal about the effects of the ongoing lockdown, claimed in July that he was down to his last R1 million.
However, with South African now at level 1 of the lockdown, many DJs have returned to the decks to keep the groove going for party goers.
“Hosh” hitmaker Prince Kaybee is set to perform in Cape Town this week at Grand Africa Café & Beach, as part of the Grand Africa Rising series.
Kicking off on November 5, the series of carefully curated experiences will be celebrated on the first Thursday of every month during summer.
