The crowd estimated at about 3500 thronged the racecourse despite the chilly weather and were treated to a world class show. Zahara also showcased her guitar skills as she played her song "My Guitar" to an overwhelmed crowed that joined in and sang along.

Zahara also did a tribute to Miriam Makeba and then did two favourite Brenda Fassie songs - Promise and Vulindlela.

Earlier, the opening acts did not disappoint as well and gave it their best shot. Badboy - Roki and his dancers were on fire with their energetic and raunchy dances.

Another fast rising star Alexio dazzled fans with his songs like "Shaina".
