The tremendous experience experienced at the 2017 Dstv I-rock festival main event.
The DSTV I-rock music Festival main event made the heritage weekend the one to look back on and probably get some goosebumps. The musical extravagance showed good time lovers a good time indeed, from hip-hop, house, kwaito, r.n.b and afro soul; it was all there-all in one package-thanks to the line-up.
Hip-hop fans enjoyed performances by the big-acts; incorporating the likes of ngiyas’fela hit-maker Kwesta, Okmalumekoolkat, and Cassper Nyovest who rocked the stage the best way he knows how, shaking things up by performing Benny Maverick’s komkokotlong and closing his performance with Tito Mboweni, leaving the crowd longing for more (at least he announced he’ll be filling up the FNB stadium, come the 2nd December.)
The ‘we know how to party’ element of the event was epitomized by the mcs, well Somizi in particular, who also shared the stage with Amanda Black performing amazulu. Mashabela ‘Papao’ Galane followed-suite, concurrently mcing and throwing humorous punches at the audience, after all laughter is a medicine and the DSTV I-rock music festival main event had it all catered for.
Culoe de song, DJ Mshega and Shimza didn’t disappoint on the desk, the atmosphere said it all; the audience were up, moving and grooving the night away. Black motion’s live performance is worth watching live, lucky for those who attended the event. Limpopo’s own, Da Capo, had a slot and those who know him knew what to expect, those who didn’t were probably-if not obviously-awed.
As the night was getting older, the living legend, Mdu Maselela took over, refreshing the memories taking the crowd back to kwaito classic admired by all. The best way to describe the 2017 DSTV I-rock music festival Polokwane is Tremendous and the Polokwane cricket club was a place to be.
