At 6:30 on Monday morning, 4 March, Umlazi was treated to a live performance by superstars AKA, DJ Zinhle and Destruction Boyz. They performed on the side of the road in front of a billboard, and it was quite a historic moment.
According to East Coast Radio, they made history along with AKA, DJ Zinhle and Destruction Boyz on 4 March 2019.
The group of celebs got together to perform live from 6:30am until 8:00am in Umlazi on a stage raised in front of a billboard on the side of the road.
Something like this hadn't ever been done before, so ECR can certainly say they made history. The performance was part of a campaign by the radio station, which wants to take performances to new heights.
TimesLIVE reported that ECR's general manager, Boni Mchunu, said the "Live Billboard" campaign is the radio station's way of interacting with listeners and getting into their lives.
We pride ourselves in innovation and really being able to connect with our listeners at a very personal level.
Briefly.co.za gathered that the stunt was also set up to make people aware of the radio station's improved playlist.
AKA was happy to be part of the unique event, as reported on by ecr.co.za, ECR's website.
This was such a dope event to be a part of. I commend ECR for thinking outside the box and doing something different, bringing us to the people of Umlazi.
For Zinhle it felt a little strange to do her thing on the side of the road so early in the morning.
It was a really weird feeling performing, as a DJ, on a Monday morning, on the side of the road. I am really excited to be a part of this.
What a fun way to start the week!
