Come in Numbers'
Our local stars who will be performing to night at the MTN Bushfire Festival have promised a show that will go down memory lane as the best ever in the history of the Bushfire Festival.
The local cream of entertainers who will be sending a powerful statement to the over 20 000 fun lovers from around the world include Bholoja feat Velemseni, Labahambako inTransit and Claiming Ground, DJ Chuidy, DJ Muscle, DJ Toxik, DJ Mseto, DJ Rekorder, DJ Mfundo, DJ Cya and DJ Tendaness.
They have all taken local radio stations and fans by storm and epitomise the local talent that’s riveting from within Swaziland’s own back yard. Keep a look out for their continual successes as they DJ their way to new heights.ã€€
The following is what they had to say about their performance sets including a brief background of some of our local stars:
Bholoja feat Velemseni:
It’s going to be the best the performance ever. I have tried to make my songs appeal to the international community and tonight I will also include tracks from my latest offering as well as most of popular ones from my previous one. People should come in their numbers and Velemseni will come along with a big surprise. She is a professional in the game and definitely this is a performance not to be missed.
I’m bringing something different this year during my set. It’s a huge surprise and I urge fun lovers not to miss out on this one tonight because it is something that has never been seen before. My set is not going to be just a DJ set but a performance. A crazy performance for that matter and I will also include artists as well!
Starting tonight (last night) I will be brining hell fire! I am more than ready for all my sets (including tonight) and I urge local fun lovers and the world to come have a taste of a local act at its best during the festival.

Ndumiso ‘Cubic’ Ndzinisa:
"I was born and raised in Manzini. I am a drummer something which I started practising since 2006. I also play the bass guitar as well and that I learnt in 2008.
I have played for Claiming Ground Records and Flow D as a bassist as well as the drums for Frans Dlamini, Pastor Bakhe, Ndumiso Matse, and Zaza Moeketsi (SA). My style of play is classy but vintage with a township feel, something which makes the music itself sound like it was made to dance."
