Organiser of the show Mduduzi Mdlongwa of 3D Events said preparations for the event were at an advanced stage.
“People should come watch Black Motion in action because the duo deserves to be given a grand event after a long year. We want to give them an experience that they’ll never forget as we normally do,” said Mdlongwa who hosted the group at Hartsfield Tshisa Nyama last year.
He said they were hosting the duo on a Wednesday because Black Motion was fully booked for the festive season.
“Normally, we host them on December 22, but this year, they were booked early in South Africa so they gave us the December 20 slot and we were Ok with it as we thought that since the festive season is here, people just want to have fun regardless of the day,” said Mdlongwa.
Last year’s show at Hartsfield Rugby ground was riddled with violence after the duo got to the stage late. However, Mdlongwa said he would ensure that history will not repeat itself.
