There was drama at Super Sport Park in Centurion, Pretoria over the weekend when American rapper Wiz Khalifa real name Cameron Jibril Thomaz was handed a bra by a fan during his performance at the highly-anticipated Castle Lite Extra Cold Music Concert.

WINSTONE ANTONIO IN PRETORIA, SOUTH AFRICA

After being thrilled by the musician’s performance, a female fan presented the rapper with a pink bra as a way of showing her appreciation of the rapper’s performance.

Wiz Khalifa, who was in his maiden South African performance, did not disappoint during his act, belting some of his hits songs like Black and Yellow.

At the concert he shared the stage with a host of artistes including rapper Nas, house musician Zakes Bantwini, Black Coffee, multiple SAMA awards winning group Mi Casa, DJ Clock and Black Mambazo among other artistes.

Hundreds of the fans who braved the chilly weather to grace the concert had the opportunity to download songs that were performed at the show to their mobile phones, from the Extra Cold Music site through free Wi-Fi.

The concert which was organised by Castle Lite provided some of the South African artistes with a platform to collaborate with international acts.

American rapper Nas and his Illmatic Orchestra, also performing in South Africa for their first time, collaborated with a South African Orchestra, the Philharmonic Orchestra.

At the concert Mi Casa and Ladysmith Black Mambazo performed a collaboration they recorded specifically for the concert.

The well-attended concert was produced by Grammy Award-winning music legend Timbaland.

Timberland shocked revellers as he proved that he was not aware where the show was being held as he continuously said the show was in Johannesburg instead of Pretoria.

During his set, Timberland performed mostly his own tracks and some that he produced for other musicians like Jay Z among others.

The concert also featured some South African hottest DJs among them DJ Clock with Beatenberg and Reason.

The venue had a state-of-the-art sound system complemented by LED screens.

An official from Castle Lite said they were overwhelmed by the success of the show.

Castle Lite has previously brought some international Hip Hop heavyweights such as Drake, Kanye West and Wale to South Africa.

  1. Dear Mr Antonio. How Wiz Khalifa should be your headline act in the majestic presence of Timbaland baffles me. Your story should really be about Timbaland the great producer who has worked with most of the famous African American artists.

    • dear reader… if you are interested in a Timberland article my advice to you is please WRITE YOUR OWN , if The writer was more interested in writing about Wiz Khalifa instead of the popular producer it has nothing to do with you um sure there are 100 other articles about Timberland but unfortunately he didn’t get a pink bra at the show so writing about him won’t be that much interesting. I was about the bra incident which kead me to google and read this article . Thank you Mr Antonio for an insightful article on the Pta show

  2. I am sure the writer missed tge nas perfinance coz that was the highlight n when DJ greenlantern who is a djiing legend played. brenda fassies vulindlela as a trbute to her during the nas perfomance that was a higjlight a major one

  3. An artist getting a bra at a gig is not drama at all. These guys get panties bras blouses skirts etc all the time. It is now part of gigs. Ask 2Chainz

  4. JHB and PTA are no different …..let alone Centurion falls in between so thats not a thing to write about ,,,,cause South Africans make that mistake……not a big deal!!!

  5. Dear Mr Writer, Nas was the shinning of the night and Timberland was giving masters lessons through his performance. U getting a detailed interest on Wiz given a bra kills the content of the show

  6. Who ever said Wiz was handed the bra obviously wasn’t there, its was thrown on stage. He just picked it up and said – “is this for me thank you”.
    Secondly Mr Reader. Timbaland should even been onstage. Maybe a club would be ok, he just displayed all he’s done, magnificent work, not for such a stage. His dj did a good job, his on stage just mimicking was just childs play.
    Wiz Khalifa – had a nice clean set, properly rehearsed, Well we were all there to check out Nas.
    20 years – dope stuff, amazing to the legends live.
    Respect to Reason – watch out SA.

    • I agree with you man, there is a reason why Nas performed last (Save the best for the Last). If he started then everyone whould have left early.

      He was sure the highlight of the concert. Im glad I was standing 5m away 😛

  7. Guys one thing we should know as readers is that reporters are not the ones who put headlines on stories, Sub-editors do. A reporter just submits his/her story and Sub-editors write headlines, its as simple as that so for us to lampoon this poor reporter is not fair. One other important thing we should know as readers is that a reporter can find some important information removed from the original story after being edited by the news editor pertaining to space constraints especially if the editors decide to insert an advertisement on the same page. Newspapers prioritise advertisements because that is their main source of revenue, so the editors can cut a story short to make space for a late advertisement. On this particular story the sub editor chose to go with Wiz Khalifa as the headline of the story because of the bra incident not because he was the best act or headline act at the concert……The bra story sells papers that is why the sub editors chose to run with it.

  8. Where is the drama here mr writer, maybe you had not sent news from that side for long and you decided to write about drama. Be sincere with your readers mr editor, if you have no news just put adverts we will read those.
