Constitution Hill will be the place to be, come December 30 and 31 –– as music lovers gather for the first South African leg of the Afropunk Festival.
Media personality Nandi Madida has been appointed as the host -- just months after hosting the Brooklyn edition of the fest in New York.
And she says she could not be readier.
"I am beyond humbled to be a part of the very first Afropunk in South Africa as an MC. Let us make history and be a part of an incredible legacy," Madida said in a statement.
She urged people to get behind the event and acknowledge its significance.
"Let us make history and be a part of an incredible legacy!"
What a way to ring in the new year! I'll be hosting the first-ever edition of #AFROPUNKFEST in Africa on 30&31 December 2017 . AFRICA let's show the world how we Celebrate! Thank you @Afropunk for choosing an unapologetically proud African Lady to be your host and make history. #Afropunk #AfricanWoman #AfricanQueen #WeThePeople 👑
She added: "I am particularly ecstatic and honoured to be hosting Afropunk, because it is not only a festival, but a movement that I've followed for many years –– one that encouraged me to go out there and be unashamedly myself."
Tickets for the festival are available here.Suggest a correction
