The Thesis Social Jam Sessions keep growing strong and are not about to stop anytime soon. The line up keeps growing better and more diverse. We will keep introducing acts to the youth of Soweto and Johannesburg at large.
This instalment is filled with diversity thanks to the DJ's and Live acts. Ill skills will be gracing the TSJS stage for the first time after their return from London where they were doing their 24hr mixtape ...project. This dynamic duo of Uno July and Jimmy Flexx will turn the stage into their home and make the crowd their guests. The Layders are back to showcase what they have for the masses from their forthcoming album on Soulcandi records. It must go into saying that this is the platform that got them to be signed and it’s good to have them grace us with their grown sound.
DJ Okapi's sound is that of African vibes and bubble gum all mixed with Vinyl. He is slowly making a name for himself in the Johannesburg scene and has already played at Dirty Secret and the 70 Juta opening. His selection is sure to school people and get them all nostalgic. Zakes is the hip hop/downtempo DJ that has been in the scene from long. Those that know him will tell you that he was there when DJ Mbuso was still starting out. He will be bringing along his “A” game for the TSJS crowd. Paledi and Kid Fonque don't need that much introduction. Both their selections are eclectic and will keep the crowd happy.
Comedy will be provided by Mpho "Popps" the second season runner up of so you think you funny. This young lad has been blowing up the scene... ask David Kau. As the one of few comedians to get a standing ovation at the Black Only comedy, we are proud to have him grace our stage. Opening for him will be Donovan.
