With the ongoing lockdown in South Africa, artists are definitely taking the part where they have to keep their fas entertained lightly as they have resulted to holding online events and parties in order to put their fans on positive vibes during the lock down.
Both artists and fans are in this together as entertainment industry is totally exempted from the list of essential services that are allowed to stay open during the lockdown. This means the artists have a lot of time in their hands and they also need to find other ways to stay relevant.
We have seen artists like Black Coffee, Dj Shimza, Maphorisa, Kabza de Small, PH, Ms Cosmo, Zinhle and many more hold online live party which is open to be live streamed by the public and it has been successful so far.
What we see here is a giant video streaming service known as YouTube has partnered with the like of Gigi Lamayne, Distruction Boyz, Nadia Nakai and many more international artists to hold live sessions on the platform, these session is totally open to the public and can be live streamed.
Gigi Lamayne, Distruction Boyz and Nadia Nakai have taken to social media to make the announcement. Gigi Lamayne wrote:
