CAPETONIANS who look forward to the annual Home-Coming Festival at the end of December will be pleasantly surprised to learn that the date of their favourite party has been changed.

The 8th edition of this festival takes place this Saturday (and not later in the month as usual) at the Bellville Velodrome, Cape Town, at 7pm.

Boasting a small, but hot line-up, it will host the sensational Lira. As well as bagging numerous awards in a very short time, she is also growing more elegant by the day. Newly married, Lira's star is shining brightly. She is a charming and humble person.

Lira is joined by Zonke, who has one of the finest voices. She is good, confident and rooted in Christianity, something most artists forget once they are blinded by the spotlight. Promoters take note, this girl is a gem.

Recently returned from a successful performance in the UK, Malaika, that is Tshedi and Bongani, will show us how they won the hearts of many British fans and also impressed an American promoter. They are surely entrenching themselves abroad.

He is handsome and chased by women of all ages, Ntando is, but thanks God, that is not his talent. His gift is his voice, which instantly bestowed him the title of Mr Romance. What makes this balladeer of note a winner is that he has demonstrated that you can do it even better in your own language instead of in English. It's been a while and fans are on tenterhooks to hear him.

She is beautiful, gutsy and elegant. Nhlanhla Nciza has her own clothing line - NN Vintage, which caters for youngsters with mature hearts, hence their love for vintage clothes. When she left Mafikizolo to pursue a solo career, sceptics wrote her off, but her rapid rise after only two albums has proven them wrong.

These young people will share the stage with Musiq Soulchild.

Tickets cost between R195 and R395, at Computicket, Shoprite and Checkers. VIP tickets will set you back R600 and are available at C-Sun Offices in Cape Town.
