An amazing cast of South African acts, including DJ Tira, Mafikizolo, AKA Kwesta have been lined up to perform at the Arist Benefit Concert later this year.
An event organized by the National Arts of Council (NAC) of South Africa, to raise funds for KwaZulu-Natal’s flood victims, will be held at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on June 18th.
The concert is expected to attract about 20,000 fans and seeks to raise an estimated R10 million ($620,000), for the more than 120,000 people that were affected and the surviving families who lost nearly five hundred of their loved ones in the disaster in April.
