Local stars prepare for ‘African GetDown’ in LA!

Five South African personalities will be flying to Los Angeles this week where they will spend four days in the City of Angels, culminating in an “African Getdown” party at Elyx House, Hollywood, on Thursday, with guest host, multiple Grammy and Oscar Award-winning, rapper/actor, Common.

In celebrating the growing, global impact of African music & culture, the event will include appearances by top SA artists Heavy-K, Anatii and Da L.E.S. along with TV presenters Luthando “Loot Love” Shosha and Ayanda Thabethe.

The invitation-only event follows on the recent global success of African-inspired culture in the likes of Black Panther, a number of recent music collaborations between African and American artists and the marquee accomplishments of a number of African and diaspora actors.

Following Common’s introduction to the celebrity guests, Ayanda Thabethe and Loot Love will present Heavy-K, Anatii and Da L.E.S., while guests will snack on African-inspired cuisine in the glamorous, Hollywood golden-era venue.
