It was down to health concerns that Solange could not make it to her hotly anticipated performance at Afropunk, where she’d been expected to headline the shindig’s inaugural New Year’s Eve show in South Africa in December 2017.
Though, admittedly, between that rainy festive season and this piercing winter, fans have barely buried that particular grudge.

Almost a year and a half later, Solo has been confirmed as one of the headliners for this year’s annual show in Johannesburg. The Don’t Touch My Hair singer is slated to perform alongside a neat line up that includes amongst others Miguel, Goldlink, Nao, Masego, Distruction Boyz and other dope acts.
Although some fans are eyeing the announcement with much suspicion thanks to the un-forgotten snub, there’s no doubt of the delight in this year’s unveiling of the bevy of hot artists booked to pleasure fashionably clad crowds into a refreshing arrival of 2020.

K.O Reveals Third Album Details – Everything We Know
K.O has announced his third solo project.
On Monday, K.O delighted fans when he not only announced his long awaited third solo studio album, but also revealed the album artwork, along with the title.
Slated for release on September 27th, K.O’s third solo project is called PTY UnLTD.
Perfectly synchronised to launch along with the looming summer, the album will premiere during the commercial peak of his latest hit, Say U Will, the simmering collaborative joint that saw him team up with the beautiful Nandi Madida.
The songbird has been celebrating her first ever number one, which also marks KO’s successful revival.
PTY UnLTD will also come just months after the Cashtime catalogue was availed across digital streaming platforms earlier this year. “It’s a piece of history we wanted to preserve”, he told QuenchSA in an exclusive interview, in which he also began laying out the elements which will define his next sonic ecosystem.
The sound will not adhere to the trappings of Skhanda, the Hip Hop and Kwaito fusion he masterfully pioneered and popularised with his previous works. It’s a fresh start for K.O, who sees the successes of his recent releases – which includes Supa Dupa – as keys unlocking his next chapter.
“What I have coming up is gonna be appreciated on a large scale, just based on where I am. I think I found my feet again. I can’t wait for people to hear”, he told QuenchSA.
