POLOKWANE came alive on June 16 as thousands braved the chilly cold weather to attend the well organised Castle Lite Unlock Extra Cold Festival, WRITES NAKAMPE LEKWADU
This historical colourful festival at the Polokwane Cricket Stadium lived to its expectations, and so were the performers on this cold night.
One by one, Mzansi’ top rappers who among them, the Tsonga rap princess Sho Madjozi, Casper Nyovest, DJ Vigilante an many more took to the stage much to the roaring crowd.
Nasty C took the atmosphere to the next level, keeping the multitudes to their toes before Rikhado Makhado aka Ricky Rick could stamp his authority, taking the crowd by storm when he took off his top with excitement, much to the roaring crowd.
Ricky told the crowd that they must appreciate the fact that organisers have brought the festival to Limpopo.
“Out of the two provinces this year, Polokwane was the second city which the organisers decided to bring this festival after Johannesburg. They could have taken it to the bigger cities such as Durban or Cape Town, but they decided to bring it here therefore you need to stand up and be counted with pride,” said the rapper before dishing out his best performance.
Hip Hop sensations, Bryson Tiller and Travis Scott who were performing for the first time ever in the country added more spark to the night through to the whee hours of the morning with fans begging for more and more.
