Your favourite bald-headed chick, skanda queen Moozlie will take to the stage while the award-winning Gigi Lamayne plans to make the stage Shisa.
It wouldn’t be a celebration of the fairer sex if the finest vocalists in the country were not present. Representing all the R&B and house songstresses is Bucie. She won’t be the only one belting out tunes. Expect to see the veteran, Tamara Dey and the Kalawa Chikita herself, Busiswa.
