The line-up will include AKA, HHP, Kwesta, Cassper Nyovest, K.O., Gigi LaMayne, Reason, Skwatta Kamp, Da Les, Stogie-T, Amunishn, L-Tido, Rouge, JR, Nadia Nakai, Jub Jub, Kid-X, Ma-E, Blaklez, Red Button, Yanga, Zubz, Ntukza, P Dot O, Nveigh, Solo and the BETR gang, Nothende, Max-Hoba and F-Eezy.

The event will be hosted by MC’s Moozlie, Lee Kasumba, Lootlove and Sandile GQ. There is no loftier legacy to collectively pay homage to than that of larger than life, lyrical magician, that number 1 Soweto boy Linda “PRO” Mkhize. The loss of this prolific storyteller has left an entire community of artists broken. Pro’s contribution to the hip-hop culture was so refreshingly new and unprecedented that the void will never be filled, but rather will be lauded with memories of Pro on and off stage.
Tickets are available from Computicket from R100 for general access and R250 for VIP. All proceeds from the concert will go into an education fund for PRO’s daughter Nonkanyezi.
