Axecess Jozi took place this weekend on March 7 at Mary Fitzgerald Square in Johannesburg. The line-up included 16 local acts and three international acts, SchoolboyQ, Rae Sremmurd and Kid Ink.
To our surprise, with all due respect, the local talent were by no means out of their depth. Judging by the crowds reaction, one could even go as far as saying they owned the night.
The event drew out Mzansi celebs in droves, some of whom were camera shy.
Other celeb spotting include the fierce Pearl Thusi, Mongezi “Tol Ass Mo” Ngcobondwana, Samkelo Ndlovu, Lungile Radu, Thando Thabethe, Lerato Sengadi, Larryngitis and many others who managed to evade the camera.
The event received rave reviews but was only soured by security guards’ treatment of local celebs. Their feelings were to be made public.
#AxecessJozi was dope last night. Everything was amazing. Except for security treating us like s*** when the internationals showed up.
