Here's a list of events that are happening in Joburg from 28 April until 6 May 2017.
A rare sighting of AKA
It's been a little over a year since AKA headlined Soweto’s most popular party spot, Zone 6 Venue with his inaugural Supa Mega Show. That was one of, if not the most important shows of his career. This time around, his Supa Mega Show format is in full swing and the celebration will be for Authentic Sunday’s seventh birthday. Since the inaugural Supa Mega Show last year, AKA has made a decision to perform less and be more deliberate about the gigs he accepts. So this is one of the rare chances to see him live in concert outside of festival settings. AKA will be joined by by a star-studded hip hop line-up that includes Emtee, JR, Gemini Major and Jub Jub. Behind the decks will be DJ’s Capital, Sliqe, Mr. X, Sean Kross and Vino, DJ Fanatic, Ayanda MVP, Zero, Kaybsta, Bhibo and Al Da 3rd. Tickets are available at Computicket. R100 for general and R200 for VIP.
