In what was supposed to be an intimate performance from trendy South African artiste Makhadzi, her late appearance at her ‘One woman show’ held at Royal Aria Stadium on Saturday dampened the mood for some revelers.

Forget about adult revellers, they are mostly used to late performances anyway but for children it was all tears as they had to go home and eventually to bed without seeing their favourite artiste on stage. Some parents had brought their children to the festival as early as 1PM just in time for Makhadzi’s first set scheduled for 4pm. Vee Mampeezy warmed up the stage as people hoped to see Makhadzi jump onto the stage especially that the two musicians have a couple of collaborations. But Makhadzi was nowhere to be found and the long wait for the Murahu hitmaker forced some parents out of the venue without a single glimpse of Makhadzi. Others had to brave the cold and enjoy the festivities of the night with their sleepy children on their laps.

Speaking of festivities, the stage was lukewarm all night until Mingo Touch tried his thing around 10pm. Cassper Nyovest, who was on the line-up and scheduled to perform at 8pm, was not present. “Made it back to Jhb, headed to Welkom then Clarens. To the Promoters and fans I disappointed yesterday, I would like to apologise for not being able to show up due to flights. Hade,” read the Doc Shebeleza hitmaker’s apology statement of Facebook. The former kid-sensation Mingo Touch performed some of his yesteryear hits like Tshaba tsotsi. Around midnight most of the artistes from Open Mic started showing up and Master KG immediately hit the ground running. With Botswana’s DJ Ngwazi on his side, Master KG showed the crowd why he had been touring Europe and the world since the world fell in love with his song Jerusalema in 2020. Master KG also performed some of his hits like Limpopo, Skeleton move and Dali nguwe.
