It’s time to celebrate South African Hip Hop with the 2nd largest Hip Hop festival in Africa as we are joined by hip hop legends and fresh newcomers from across SA at Maftown Heights 2016!

With the event taking place Friday 25 November at Mary Fitzgerald Square in Newtown, here are a few things you could look out for if you’re thinking of checking it out.

Khuli Chana & Cassper Nyovest

With Khuli finding his sound again and Cassper having just filled up a stadium, it seems as if the best way to kick the show off would be with an exclusive premiere of a hot new track featuring Khuli Chana and Cassper Nyovest. The name of the track and whether or not it will feature anyone else will only be revealed during their performance.

KFC Surprise Guest

When news of a surprise guest brought to you by KFC came out most people thought that the rapper formerly known as Mos Def aka Yasiin Bey, would be the person KFC would get to hold down a short set, but with the recent news of Yasiin’s unpleasant exit we can only wonder who KFC have in mind as the surprise guest.

AKA & Cassper

Maftown Heights 2016 might be one of the most memorable as it might be the year where we see AKA and Cassper Nyovest share the same stage as they shut down Mary Fitzgerald Square for an Ultra-Supa Mega performance you don’t wanna miss out. The AKA & Cassper performance hasn’t been totally confirmed but it seems highly likely to happen so I’m going to be there just in case.
