The 2018 edition of Bushfire ended off with a bang. With tickets sold out weeks before the festival, many fans were looking forward to what was dubbed a one of a kind collaboration.
Nigerian superstar Yemi Alade, award-winning South African musicians Ladysmith Black Mambazo, and the legendary Salif Keita from Mali, all performed together for the Africa Tribute to ESwatini. Alade also performed her hit, Ferrari which is off Mama Africa (The Diary of a an African Woman), an album she released in 2016.
Alade and Ladysmith Black Mambazo then sang a new song which speaks of the strength of Africa.
Salif Keita performed Africa, which the crowd sang along to.
Other performances included Sipho Hotstix Mabuse and Rouge.
Over the weekend festival-goers were treated to a variety of musical genres with more then 50 artists and DJs from around the world performing. From Rap to folk, there was something for everyone.
Fans also enjoyed performances by Sho Madjozi and Kapa Dech on Saturday. Kwesta also got the crowd to sing the South African national anthem during his set. Yes you read right, everyone sang the SA national anthem in at a Swaziland festival.
When it came to food, the Taiwanese stand was popular but so was the traditional Swazi cuisine stand and Brazilian cocktails.
Bushfire 2018 definitely brought its fire.
