Riky Rick unveils star-studded line-up for Cotton Fest

Moozlie, Ayanda MVP, Kwesta and Nasty C are just a few of the many musicians scheduled to perform at the festival in Newtown on Saturday, 2 February 2019.

Rap superstar, Riky Rick, has finally revealed the line-up of artists who will perform at the Cotton Festival on Saturday, 2 February 2019 at The Station in Newtown, Johannesburg.

The star-studded event will be headlined by Riky Rick himself along with Kwesta, AKA, Nasty C, Anatii and Stogie T. Over 80 acts are expected to perform at the music and fashion festival. The line-up represents only the best in South African hip-hop with Emtee, A-Reece, Okmalumkoolkat, Priddy Ugly, Moozlie, Gemini Major, Da Les, Major League DJz, Ayanda MVP and Reason.

The star made the announcement on all his social media pages on Tuesday, 15 January 2019.  Newcomers like Boity and Dr Peppa will also be given a chance to show off their talents. Last week, the ‘Sidlukotini’ rapper shared a poster that blurred the names of the confirmed artists, peaking the interest of his fans. The mystery does not end, however, as the event poster promises a special surprise performance.

The Cotton Festival is the first of its kind and celebrates hip-hop music and fashion in South Africa. Riky Rick expressed his gratitude to all the musicians who got involved in the event. “A big thank you to all the artists who agreed to be part of this,” he said on social media. “[I am] grateful for your energy.” Fans can buy tickets from webtickets at only R150 per ticket.
