Johannesburg April 18th, 2017 – On Friday, 14th April SA’s award-winning hip-hop artist and Red Heart crew member Kwesta, along with the celebrated queen of gqom, Babes Wodumo WOW’d South Africans with an exceptionally bold show “The People’s Choice” at ICON in Soweto.
Kwesta performed some of his greatest hits including Nomayini, Mayibabo, Ngiyaz’fela Ngawe, and Ngud, to fully packed crowd, who also saw performances by Kid X, TLT and Makwa 6eats, Heavy K, DJ Sliqe, Vigilante, Just Mo and Trallavele.
“Red Heart is all about rallying people to live with heart and we want to champion those who do. We are super proud to be associated with Kwesta and we are delighted with the success of his show! We support him in making a statement like this and standing up for something that he believes in,” says Triya Govender, Marketing Manager: Rums for Pernod Ricard.
It is qualities like these that showed yet again why Kwesta was selected as a member of the Red Heart crew along with other outstanding talents such as Falko One, Jean-Marc Johannes, Breyton Paulse and Fixin Diaries – who all took part in a series of challenges in which they showed South Africans what is means to #LIVEWITHHEART and rallied them to do the same.
Kwesta’s Red Heart challenge was to create a new track with a catchy beat and hook, using three words pulled from a hat as his inspiration – to ‘put his spin on it’. What followed was a fun track featuring the words gymnastics, Soweto and 10-pin bowling. Kwesta lived up to his reputation of putting his own spin on things, now he challenges his fans to do the same, to #LIVEWITHHEART.
