United States’ Migos trio of Quavo, Offset and Takeoff were at the Durban ICC this past Friday, as they kicked off the first leg of their South African tour, and what a party it was!
The arena was jam packed with thousands of fans who were rocking their fresh and brightly coloured hip-hop inspired apparel of sneakers, t-shirts, tight jeans and bling accessories. With a bit of a delay to the rap group’s appearance on stage, their deejay, DJ Durel kept the crowed jumping to some of the hottest tunes that have made waves in 2017.
Hip Hop heads were chanting, rapping and dancing to the tunes of the Versace-singing trio as they wowed their day-one fans with their popular hits such as ‘Bad and Boujee’, ‘What’s the price’, ‘T-Shirt’ and many other tracks that have taken the group to the top of the hip hop pyramid.
The Migos Culture Tour, which was brought to our shores by Mabala Noise, in association with MTV Base, BET Africa, YFM and Gagasi FM gave hip hop fanatics a night to remember.
Banele Nduli, who was there to witness the groups long awaited performance, said he wouldn’t trade the experience he had for anything else.
“I got excited when I heard they were coming to the country and I am pretty sure that I am one of the first hundred who bought the tickets. Migos tonight produced a killer performance and it gives me joy that today I am here to see the best in the entire world,” he said.
On arrival at the King Shaka International Airport in Durban on Thursday, the group, along with their entourage, were welcomed by hundreds of their fans. Snenhlanhla Buthelezi who was among the hundreds that were present said, “It was such a very good experience to be part of the first people to see Migos land in the country, and I can’t wait to see them perform.”

Fans also enjoyed star-studded performances from local acts such as AKA, Distruction Boyz, Ricky Rick, as well as Mabala’s very own Nasty C, L’Vovo, Gigi Lamayne and Zakwe, while Nomalanga “The Flame” Shozi and Siyabonga Heazy” Madida of Gagasi FM and TV personality Mbali Nkosi all did a sterling job as MCs.
The second leg of the tour, on the southern part of the African continent, saw its conclusion on Saturday night in Johannesburg at the Ticketpro Dome. In Durban, the night-life lovers headed to 47th Avenue where the after party was held.
