MUSIC lovers who’ve missed out on Afro-pop singer Sliq Angel’s voice will get to see him perform in Newtown, Jozi.
The music sensation from Duncan Village in East London, Eastern Cape, is among the artists billed to perform at the Africa Day celebrations at the SAB World of Beer on Saturday.
The brewery will mark Africa’s 56 years of independence, freedom and liberation from colonialism with good music, food and beer-pairing.
World of Beer general manager Felicia Mokoena said they will be showcasing food from different parts of the continent.
She said they have been hosting beer and food-pairing events every Saturday since the beginning of the month and decided to go big and host a continent-wide beer-pairing festival.
“The festival will showcase our African beers against various African cuisine,” she said.
Beer-pairing will include beer from Ghana, Zambia, Mozambique and Botswana.
Felicia urged revellers to buy their tickets on time.
“We encourage all lovers of authentic African cuisine and beer to come and enjoy the creative fusion of each course.
“What remains consistent is the guest experience and the authenticity of traditional African cuisine that is carefully crafted to pair with the SAB’s African brands,” said Felicia.
Sliq Angel will be joined on stage by Triple Treasure and other musicians to entertain attendees.
- The menu will include exotic foods, including jollof rice, egusi soup, Mozambican seafood and seswaa. Tickets for the first package, which includes food and beer-paring, will set you back R200 each.
The second package includes attending the Africa Day Festival, plus two complimentary African beers.
