MANZINI – Coming back home is always sweet, but to be welcomed back by an excited crowd of fans is every artist’s dream.


This was the case on Thursday at Mavuso Sports Centre when local artists based in South Africa received a warm welcome during their memorable performances.
This was during the Eswatini International Trade Fair Independence Day music festival.


The performances had the crowd excited such that the security guard rails put in front of the stage had to be opened for the lively crowd to get closer.
The South African-based artists who gave killer performances included Big Dreamz, Sheejay Zoe, Zamo and DJ Touch of Soul.


Their performances even cau-ght the eye of SWAMA President Melusi ‘Zox’ Dlamini, who said he was impressed and happy they managed to give local fans a taste of what they are missing from these artist.


Afro-soul singer Zamo was the first act to jump on stage and thrill fans with her soothing sounds.
Despite the poor attendance, the musician did the most on stage as she sang her lungs out and danced up a storm.
Zamo, who looked stylish in a printed jumpsuit outfit, saw her biggest moment play itself out when she performed her hit song ‘Tinyembeti’ as the crowd went into a frenzy.


The fans danced and sang along as she belted it out on stage.
Another artist who stole the show with an animated performance was Afro-soul musician Sands, whose songs ‘Woza woza’ and ‘Tigi’ got the crowd dancing and screaming in excitement.


Sands formed a formidable alliance with his band, especially the lead guitarist as he danced with him in what can be described as a sterling performance.
He might have got on stage late but he made sure he got the crowd dancing, that is none other than Touch of Soul.
The DJ came after rap artist S-tone and delivered an impressive set.


He was well received by the crowd even before he climbed on stage as the crowd went crazy when Programme Directors, Lindokuhle Mthupha and Phila Dlamini announced he was the next act to perform.
He dished house and gqom tunes much to the appreciation of the crowd.
