Nothing can capture the essence of South Africa better than the deep, uplifting sound of Kwesta singing “Spirit”. Well, nothing other than Kwesta singing “Spirit” on stage at South Africa’s top resort, Sun City, in celebration of its 40th birthday on 7 December 2019.
Get ready to bop and weave to Kwesta’s “Flash it”, “Babhemi”, “Flava”, “Pump It”, “Spirit” and so many more. Turning 40 is a big deal, and thus Sun City is bringing all the big deal artists to the resort to celebrate this milestone.
Senzo Mfundo Vilakazi (known internationally as Kwesta) developed an interest in poetry during his high school years and received positive feedback and encouragement from fellow students and teachers. He pursued his music career from a young age and is now a respected and revered rapper and songwriter. He is currently signed to his own independent media company known as “Rap Lyf” with co-founder Kid X.
Also performing at the 40th Birthday Party at the Valley of Waves are Shekhinah, Dr Victor & The Rasta Rebels, Kurt Darren, AKA, Mi Casa and local band, Soulmajestik. The energy levels will be maintained at the After Party at the Sun Arena by Kwesta, Goodluck, Prince Kaybee, Sho Madjozi, DJ Christos, Vinny da Vinci and DJ Tira, with Somizi in the driver’s seat as MC.
“Sun City shares Sun International’s commitment to supporting the local music and performing arts industry. In this spirit and to honour the exceptional calibre of South African talent, we will bring together some of the country’s most exciting performers to Sun City for The Big 40 Birthday Party.
