There will be a Workers’ Day celebration at the Kwa Mashu Fan Park on May 1. The event will feature live performances from much-loved local artists, namely Nasty C, Duncan, Lacostaration, DJ Wobbly and Pluto Broes.

The event is presented by Leap of Faith Productions and run by Nompilo Mtshali and Nompilo Masinga who both have extensive knowledge in Event Management and born and bred in Kwa Mashu.

Asked to comment on the event they both said “We are firm believers of the saying that charity begins at home and that is why as Leap of Faith Productions we have decided to have our first event in our home town Kwa Mashu. We believe that it is time that we put Kwa Mashu on the map in the entertainment arena and showcase just how much talent our country has. This is also part of social cohesion and reminding our youth and the community that it important to celebrate what we have as a nation and also build the community at the same time. We are really lucky to have a supportive Parks and Recreation Department in Kwa Mashu who have helpful staff and encourage events that remind people that you can receive and enjoy quality entertainment in your own neighbourhood.”

One of the leading artists in the line-up Nasty C, currently has a successful music career and he was the youngest recipient for an award for the 2015 South African Hip Hop Awards, namely the Best Freshman Award. Nasty C is a Durban-born artist from KZN and is expected to wow the audiences with his much loved hits such as Juice Back.

Another great Durban-born artist featured is Duncan who has something special to add on the Hip-Hop catalogue, he tells good and touching stories about human life. His articulation and voice demands attention and delivers to the ear.

House Music lovers will also be richly entertained by the DJs that will be performing loved house music tracks making sure that people are entertained and mostly on their feet for the duration of the event.

There will also be a strong security presence in the Kwa Mashu Fan Park precinct so people do not have to be concerned about their personal safety.

The Celebration starts at 15h00 on May 1 and runs until late. Tickets R150 booked through Computicket. Patrons are allowed to bring their own camp chairs or blankets, cooler bag, gazebos and refreshments. No bottles allowed!
