“They do many other dances, but we have decided to have a special for township music because it involved a lot of comic scenes that are popular with our patrons. Every time they perform township music acts fans really enjoy it and we have chosen this long public holiday to focus on that genre,” said City Sports Bar director Biggie Chinoperekwei.
Both groups have performed at the have performed several times and wowed audiences with their diverse acts.
Banyana Bafana perform tomorrow night while Apama take over the stage on Monday.
Chinoperekwei said the “Heroes’ Promotion” will involve give-away prizes in the form of TV sets and DVD players.
The promotion, which began last night, will run until Monday and two lucky patrons will get a TV set and DVD player every night.
“Every patron in the bar stands a chance to win. By just buying the normal entrance ticket at the door patrons qualify for the promotion.”
The entertainment programme will be complemented by resident DJs Storm, Zii and Joe Mento. Chinoperekwei said the promotion was a way of giving back to his loyal patrons.
