It’s a chilly Sunday evening in Newtown. You can feel that winter is just around the corner, but this does not stop music lovers flocking into Matlombe lounge for Afrobeat Sundays.

The lineup included Democratic Republic of Congo Nseka et Le fantastique, Tshedi Mholo of Malaika and the industry’s latest sensation Noma G.

The Show is opened by the charismatic founder of Gem Shack Records and Music producer Mpho Hlahla.

I knew that it was going to be one hell of a performance as soon as is I saw Noma G walk into the stage on a yellow African print cloak. She looked absolutely stunning…  She was ready to kick start what will be one of the greatest events Carob Magazine has attended this year.

She sizzles the audience with songs like ‘High life’ from her debut album “Give me some o’ my tea!’’  She also sings one of my personal favorites from her album, a love song tittled ‘Impilo yami”.

She ends her performance on a high note with a French song that got everybody down on the floor dancing kwasakwasa style.

The Delicious food at Matlombe lounge complemented the great show.

When Nseka came on stage with his band, the show was lit with dance moves from all over Africa, courtesy of popular band member Kacharel.

The band was later joined by Tshedi Mholo from Malaika who also got the audience dancing up a storm. She closed the beautiful show with a bang singing her hit song Destiny.
