South African hiphop artist Riky Rick together with some of SA’s finest talent shut down the inner city this past weekend with over 10 000 concert goers attending his second annual Cotton Fest.
Cotton Fest showcases the diversities in hip hop and other popular SA music genres through fashion and music.
With over 100 local acts performing across three stages, cotton eaters came out in their numbers from different corners of the country to participate in the annual festivities.
The day was filled with bright colour and power sound including a performance from Riky Rick on his show stopping, first-time-seen-in-SA, elevated moving stage that had the audience in awe.
KDanielles Media saw it all, thousands of fans, a lot of colour and daring fashion, food for days, happy souls and great music. Some of our favourite performances were from Tshego, KO, Kwesta and Shane Eagle, who gave a nice touch when he wore a fan’s jacket on stage while giving us a great performance. Riky Rick proved how much of a great star he is, not only on stage, but by the artists and fans he managed to pull together in one night.
The festival was a great success, so much so that he showed appreciation to his fans on his post, saying:
“Thank you all for the continued love and support. Cotton Fest 2020 is not about me at all. It’s about the great people we have in this industry coming together and creating history for the people. I’m humbled by all the performers who gave up their time to come spread love with us. I’m humbled by the fans who came in their numbers to spread love with us. All 3 stages were unforgettable. Thank you so much for being part of this movement. This is only the beginning. Love you guys. Let’s do it again soon?”
