HIP-HOP musician Lusaso “Saso” Ngcobo is looking to make history with his debut at the Hollywoodbets Durban July in KZN.

As a member of the popular Durban hip-hop group Dream Team, Saso has adapted his marquee, Saso’s Brunch Marquee, to meet the demands of the public.

This tent complements the range of glamorous enclosures at the event and attracts thousands of horse and fashion enthusiasts.

The Hollywoodbets Durban July, which takes place at Greyville Racecourse in Durban, will see Saso’s billboard prominently displayed near the winning spot.

Various artists will perform on stage, including Oscar Mbo, Major League DJz, Sjava, Blxckie, DBN Gogo, PH, Sphectacula & DJ Naves, Kweyama Brothers and DJ LeSoul.

Saso’s vision is to unite top talent to entertain a diverse, youthful audience. His line-up offers a mix of DJ sets from Amapiano to Afrotech and live performances from Afropop to hip-hop.

“The most important element of any event is the musical line-up. The team and I worked hard and brought in the biggest acts that we knew would set the stage on fire.

“It was important for us to listen to our people and give them exactly what they asked for,” he said.

The party will be hosted by Gagasi FM breakfast presenter Minnie Ntuli, who is thrilled to be part of this first event celebrating ‘black excellence’.

“It is truly an honor to host the very first Saso’s Brunch Marquee, especially as it celebrates ‘black excellence’.

“I am grateful to the team that has entrusted me with this task and I promise to do everything I can on the day,” she said.
