Phikwe’s packed week
The industrious mining town of Selebi Phikwe will be a beehive of activity this coming long President Holidays.
First, sports lovers will be treated to the Softball Extravaganza from 16th to 18th.
Bat and ball will then be swapped for bibs and running shoes at the weekend as the Orange Phikwe marathon rolls its colourful way into town on Saturday.
The action will be capped off by a festival featuring South African songbird Nokwazi at the Phikwe Golf Club.
The singer is known for hits such as ‘Vula vala’ with Kabza De Small and Vigro Deep.
She’ll share the stage with Drak, Rez, Khabazela, Gamma, Pro Sleet, Sker, Mae Paper, Millz, Phax MK and DJ Visa.
Hey Nyenaah will be the MC of the night. Early bird tickets are selling for P100, or else it’s P150 at the gate.
Tickets are available at DFNG Bottle Store.
