Nakhane and Sho Madjozi both shared their excitement on Twitter with Nakhane also performing at Afropunk Paris, France in July. 

The local performers will be sharing the stage with international stars such as Erykah Baduh, Willow and Jaden Smith, Janelle Monáe, Tyler the Creator and Miguel. 

This music fest came to Johannesburg last year, where Solange was set to headline the New Year's Eve event, but had to withdraw from the festival due to medical complications.
