Mkhululi Siqula, popularly known as HeavyK, will replace Blackcoffee as the headline act, at this year’s Spring Xplosion gig, rebranded as the Spring Fiesta.

Spring Xplosion, which is in its third year, is slated for September 29, 2015 at Fairgrounds.

The line-up of banging acts include, South Africa’s Ricky Rick of Boss Zonke fame, DJ Kent, Dr Malinga, the duo of Black Motion, DJ Shimza and Culoe De Song.

Spring Xplosion organisers revealed to Showtime that Blackcoffee would not be able to attend this year due to his conflicting schedule. Blackcoffee will be in Miami, United States of America, attending the Ibiza Awards, scheduled for the same weekend.


One of the organisers, Kabelo Tron Moilwa, said the change was unfortunate but they had accepted it. “Initially Blackcoffee was part of the line up…

He has a huge following here and it would have been amazing to have him perform for us, but he has just informed us that he will not be able to grace the event as he has to travel to Miami, for the Ibiza Awards,” he said.

The Sweetie hitmaker popularly referred to as the Drumbos man, who previously dumped a total of three local events at the last minute has confirmed that he will be performing live at the event.

“After a successful and fully-packed Summer Xplosion, this time around Spring Xplosion promises to be even bigger, the excitement around the event is amazing,” Moilwa said.The event, has previously hosted Nigeria’s David Davido Adeleke at a show that attracted at least 5, 000 revelers.

Local artists expected to perform at the event include, Team Distant, Vee, MMP Family, Dramaboi, Machesa Traditional Group, DJ Kuchi, and NT Base amongst others.

Xplosion Entertainment, which also hosts the annual Summer Xplosion event, has by far been the biggest crowd puller, hosting artist that are trending all over Africa and bringing them under one roof.
