Mzansi amped to have Hey Neighbour festival confirmed

Concertgoers were amped for the Kendrick Lamar show, unlike other artists who attempted to come and failed like Burna Boy, who wanted to fill up FNB, and Da Baby who was cancelled before his performance plans gained momentum.

These are some of the comments:

@MoreTwoLyf tried all avenues:

"Guys Kitkat South Africa is running a competition to win tickets to Hey Neighbour. I have entered and crossing fingers."

@jojomatches said:

"Guys I wanna go."


"We will be there!"

@nozmncube was relieved:

"I was so scared its a scam, thanks God."

@NommyFunDo was excited:

"Last time I saw @kendricklamar live in South Africa was in 2014 and today marks one more month till I see him perform again at the #HeyNeighbour festival. I'm so excited! And yes, that is me screaming in the background. #UniteThroughMusic"
