FM, Ukhozi FM, Capital FM Newspapers and more. We managed to attract a Nigerian based organization Music Africa Awake to help us promote South African Artists across Africa Challenges: Due to lack of sponsorship high expenses and other complications Nduduzo Makhathini, Linda Sikhakhane, Nomalanga Hlubi and few others artists were cancelled, our marketing plan and ticket sales did not bring us enough attendance and we could not raise enough funds. However we have solutions for 2018.
