The Organic Live Sessions grand finale proved to be a night of appreciating artistic performance as revellers enjoyed every moment at Cresta President Hotel on Friday.

Dubbed the Organic Live Sessions Amplified, the open mic session hosted artists from different backgrounds like Mmakgosi Tau, J Nathan, Ntirelang Berman, Sunshine, Fifi Boloseng, Genius Senyatso and Kabo Leburu. The venue was filled up as young artists opened up the show with their respective performances that mainly comprised poetry pieces. Spoken word artists managed to charm the audience with their linguistic prowess, which led to one of them giving thanks.  The likes of J Nathan recited about individuals who  always judge others when they have their own mistakes too. “I refuse to be judged, only a blind man can judge me,” he said with many agreeing with his message.  He played around with metaphors and also gave some musical performance with guitarist Teacobouy. Unknown musician Miss Jakes took the event to another level as she did a cover of Bob Marley’s Turn Your Lights Down Low.  Her performance came unexpectedly as everyone stood up to sing along.  She closed her set with another cover from Sade’s By Your Side with the audience feeling love in the air.

 Even dance ensemble like Aneroid Crew performed, giving an urban dance act with their faces painted in different colours as clowns. The crew danced to some electro techno music doing various routines on stage. As the night went on, poetess Goddess Isis, who went on stage with her young daughter, Ethiopia, connected with the audience with her Black Power poem, which encouraged the black nation to rise up regardless of the struggles.
