Die jol het geruk on Friday night when local artists came together for a variety show with a good cause at Portland High School Hall in Mitchells Plain.

The stage was vuurwarm with artists Loukmaan Adams, Ashur and Madeegha Petersen, Nur Abrahams, Ramaine Barreiro, Cindy Gibbons and Salome Damons.

The band SA Fire backed up the artists for the night.

Mense went mal when the late Taliep Petersen’s daughter, Fatiema Petersen, 25, opened the show with Never Enough, the hit song from the movie, The Greatest Showman. She also ended the event with her own song, called Fight.

Brother Ashur took everyone on a trip down memory lane with Queen of Hearts, and also gave the audience a taste of his new song, Dance With Me.

“I want to start my own legacy, I know everyone sees me as Taliep’s son, but my music is different to my father’s. I want people to see me as Ashur, a brand on my own,” the youngster said.

The evergreen Loukmaan Adams got everyone singing along during his performance, and told the crowd: “I’m always glad to perform in my home town.” 

But it was firebrand Ramaine who had everyone on their feet with her vivacious and colourful performance, changing her costumes in tandem with her songs.

Funnyman Wayne McKay was the MC and had mense in stitches between acts.

Melicia Daniels, 50, from Mitchells Plain says she thoroughly enjoyed the show.

“It was amazing to see all my favourite artist on one stage, I really love Salome, she is simply the best,” she says.

Proceeds of the show were donated to the Delft Feeding Scheme.
