Fingo Square rounds off 2016
News Year‘s Eve, 31 December 2016, brought unforgettable entertainment by Grahamstown artists to Fingo Square. Back Again Events and Multimedia Makenik, both local SMMEs, saw – and took – the opportunity to keep the people of Grahamstown entertained during the festive season. Zolani Tshobo, Azlan Makalima, Siyanda Booi and Andiswa Bangani held their inaugural annual New Year’s Eve Bash. The event is set to continue every year, with aim of uplifting Grahamstown music – but with artists from out of town also invited. The events was funded from the pockets of the event organisers and supported by Grahamstown artists and residents, Around Hip Hop, Shizzo Manizzo and Kunjani Sound Company. Photos: Azlan Makalima
