“This (confirmation by Kabza) reassures Amapiano lovers that Kabza is definitely coming for the show at Cosmopolitan.

There has been a lot of excitement from people as we’ve received a lot of enquiries and it’s promising to be a big show,” said DJ Prince Eskhosini.

He said they were hard at work preparing for the gig.

“There are many things we’re trying to put in place so that everything on the night goes along smoothly.

“For instance, we have a generator in case of a power cut – which has become the norm.”

Kabza De Small will be supported by local DJs Crazy Dee, Mzoe, Keezy AM and Josh as well as his countryman DJ Farmer.
