Bringing Nelspruit a whole lot more of the best that the South African music and entertainment industry has to offer, the Mpumalanga Comes Alive three day festival set off on the night of the 12th of September at Capello in Nelspruit where the comedy show and pre-party were held with Chris Mapane as the main act for the comedy show line-up accompanied by other local comedians from around Nelspruit. The pre-party had a massively crazy line-up with DJs Christos, Vinny da Vinci, Sumbody, Fistaz Mixwell and more.
The main festival took place on Saturday, the 13th of September at Mbombela Stadium where actor and musician, Phila Madlingozi held it down as the MC. Living up to the theme of the overall event, Mpumalanga did come alive as they had a jam-packed line up consisting of L’tido, Maggz, Riky Rick, DJ Vetkuk VS Mahoota, DJ Elque and Sean Pages, Ma-E (Teargas), M’du Masilela, DJ Sbu, Bucie and Busiswa to mention just a few.
Oozing things down a bit, the soul sessions took place the following day (Sunday) at Nutting House in Nelspruit which had quite a great setting that brought everyone into the mood, R & B music sets by Tlhaki The Best and Paul Mtirara kept the crowd captivated with the ooh’s and aah’s. Lovely performances were rendered by the soul brother Vusi Nova as well as Idols SA 2013 winner and runner up, Musa Sukwene and Brendan Ledwaba followed by a set by DJ Sbu who brought up some old school kwaito and house tracks to close-off the show.
