"This is a family friendly show that celebrates South African culture and there is something for everyone, from live performances, great music, networking and a wide selection of South African cuisine, not forgetting gift bags and various other treats."

The weather in the UK at this time of the year is full of sunny skies and the Mzansi Fetsival provides a perfect opportunity for some merry making for the whole family with entertainment at a premium with the show powered by Flokshin Entertainment and backed by a strong line-up of sponsors.

Some of the sponsors include Diaspora Insurance who offer life assurance cover, funeral and repatriation services bereaved families in the diaspora, Express Links Money Transfer who offer financial and remittance services from the UK to Africa, as well as Brand South Africa whose main objective is the marketing of South Africa in attracting tourism and investment. Coventry based law firm, BHB Law who offer legal services within the UK, specializing in immigration law are also sponsoring.

Also on the bill are wheel spinners and DJ's such as DJ Gukwa, DJ Scamto, DJ logic as well as Zimbabwean singer and rapper Tytan who is currently riding high with his latest single called Pamha.

Holly Rey, Levi Love and Asanda Jezile also provide some diversity in the line-up at the highly anticipated show that is likely to have a projected large turnout considering the popularity of the performers and appreciation of South African art and culture in the UK.
