AKA set to dazzle EL audiences
The World Is Yours hit-maker AKA is bringing his Touch My Blood tour to East London’s latest entertainment spot, Roots Lifestyle at the weekend.
Roots Lifestyle, in Orange Grove, will also officially launch their venue when they host the Supa Mega on Saturday. The place was formerly known as Ground X but it is now under new management.
The Roots Lifestyle venue is run by the same people who host the annual London Roots Party in December. The event has hosted the likes of Cassper Nyovest, TKZee, Somizi Mhlongo and Distruction Boyz, among many.Marketing director Nikita Manqoyi said they were excited to officially open their doors to the public at what they hope will become East London’s venue of choice for entertainment.
“We are using the launch as the official opening date,” said Manqoyi.
“This has given us an advantage to market the place and also make sure people know about the new changes that are taking place here.”He said they were planning to increase their visibility on social media and get more people to the venue.
“We are giving the place an urban feel and we are looking at turning it into the same vibe as [popular Durban hangout spot] Eyadini [Lounge]. We are hoping it will be the venue of choice for people in East London and outside.”
He also added they would be opening everyday from 12pm to 12am.
“We also want to give other places in the city an opportunity to get business and we believe there is enough for everyone,” he said.
The rapper, who released his third solo album, Touch My Blood, this year tweeted this week that he was bringing his tour to East London.
Manqoyi said they were planning to bring more big names into the city.
“We have a lot of stuff lined up but for now we want to focus on AKA’s gig. We don’t want to give away much but we will sure surprise East London people,” he said.
General tickets for Saturday’s show cost R180, VIP is going for R500 tickets and are available at Computicket...
