I performed on a boat party that was packed to the brim in Ayia Napa, Cyprus. It was a mix of tropical music, good drinks, beautiful weather and Mediterranean water. Perfect day!

With FAME WEEK Africa being hosted in the Mother City, what do you love about Cape Town?
Cape Town is beautiful all round. You’ve got everything all in one place. The street venues and night life breathe a particularly artistic feeling that’s very unique to the city. It’s very European, in some parts too, and I’m excited for Cape Town to enhance the amazing week that FAME Week will bring.
