Nasty C, A-Reece, Sho Madjozi and More Have Been Added To The Lineup For AKA’s Orchestra On The Square Concert

Fresh blood just got added to the lineup.

AKA just made his upcoming Orchestra On The Square concert even more interesting. Supa Mega took to Instagram yesterday to announce that Nasty C, A-Reece, Sho Madjozi, DJ Speedsta, Ayanda MVP, Team Mosha and 2Lee Stark will share the stage with him.


The artist announced the concert in January, stating he will take to the stage with a 30-piece orchestra to perform some of his hits.

The addition of some of the country's most popular artists at the moment is exciting news. Not only because they are great artists, but it's a great gesture for an elder like Supa Mega to share his moment with the future of the game.

Orchestra On The Square will take place from 4pm on Sunday, 17 March 2019, at the Sun Arena at Time Square in Pretoria.

Tickets are available at Computicket.
