In Photos: Migos' Culture Tour in Johannesburg

ATL trio Migos' Culture Tour had two South African stops–in Durban on Friday and Johannesburg on Saturday.

We attended the Joburg leg of the tour, and the group didn't disappoint, although the event itself was unacceptably disorganized. South African rappers Riky Rick and Nasty C gave great performances, especially the latter.


AKA was announced on stage, but after more than two hours of him not showing up, fans were left waiting with no activity at all–just a random playlist that had repeated songs.



Other South Africans acts on the bill, such as Gigi Lamayne and L'vovo Derrango did not get to perform.

Mabala Noise, the company which organized the event, recently released a statement clarifying the inconvenience:

"Just after 7pm on Saturday evening a massive storm descended on Johannesburg significantly impacting some of the access control points and the electronic accreditation systems.

In the best interests of public safety, the VOC made the decision to pause the live performances until such time as the access points were operating effectively and the safety of patrons could be assured. The safety of the fans was paramount. The time taken to ensure that the event could continue safely caused the delay to the concert schedule and timings had to be adjusted accordingly.

All booked South African artists were backstage and made aware of the situation. Migos went on stage at their scheduled time slot and performed their full set."

But the Migos performance was worth the wait. The cool kids of Joburg went wild to the group's hits–from their early material such as "Hannah Montana" all the way to recent songs like "T-Shirt" and "Get Right Witcha" among others.

Tall A$$ Mo and Kanyi Mbau were the hosts for the night.

MFE Pays Tribute to PRO on The Second Anniversary of The South African Hip-Hop Legend’s Passing

Artists signed to PRO's label MFE commemorate him in new tribute song 'MAWE: VITA24' on the second anniversary of the South African hip-hop pioneer's passing.

One aspect of PRO(Kid)'s legacy that rarely gets mentioned is his label. As head of Money First Entertainment, the label he founded, PRO played roles in the trajectories and craft of artists such as Red Button, Captian_fs, sFs 5 Star and TeePee among others. The former three were official members of MFE with Red Button, PRO's protégé, being the first artist to be signed to the label.

PRO who passed away exactly two years ago today gets a tribute from his label's roster. "MAWE: VITA24" is a remix of an sFs 5 Star song titled "Mawe" that the artist released in February.
