The fun-loving people of Greater Durban have a brand new concept to enjoy this festive season with an event which fuses great food, Old Skool Kwaito and Stand-up Comedy– all against the breathtaking, beautiful backdrop of the Inanda Dam (Green Corridor, Eskebheni side).

Known as Music, Food & Fun By The Dam, this fun extravaganza takes place on December 18 and features top DJs Smira and Dj Mangoh on the decks, and stand-up comedy by exciting Durban acts such as Siyanda Maphumulo (wooden mic idol contestant), Ndlebe, Tsoro and Amawele ase-Chesterville.

The programme director will be the popular Gagasi FM prankster Qatha “Masheleni” Khuzwayo, and the guest artist will be award-winning mega hip-hop star, Zakwe.

Event spokesperson, Sanele Mkhabela, promises all attendees an experience to remember. “For far too long, the people of Durban have been starved of a platform where they can just be themselves and have a great time to celebrate another long year. We are here to change that. The concept of Music, Food & Fun By The Dam offers them a unique opportunity to do just that, in a breathtakingly beautiful and safe setting. All the ingredients for a truly memorable time are there. With great food, top DJs, stand-up comedians and beautiful surroundings, what more can you really ask for?”

The event organizers, who are proud residents of Inanda, want to grow the event into an annual affair which will cement its place in the local entertainment calendar and boost local tourism, in line with the vision of local tourism movement, Woz’eNanda (Come to Inanda). As they comment: “We are saying, Woz’eNanda. There’s so much to see and experience.”

Tickets cost R300 (R450 for VIP) available at Computicket. The dress code is strictly blue denim and white. The buffet and drinks are included in the ticket price.

Music, Food & Fun By The Dam takes place on December 18 from 12 noon to 22h00 at Inanda Dam (Green Corridor/Eskebheni side). Transport is available from Wushwini Arts Centre.
