The upcoming Maftown Heights festival taking place on Friday, 27 November 2015, at Mary Fitzgerald Square, Newtown, Johannesburg, ran a fan driven competition on Twitter to give “New Kids On The Block (#NKOTB)” a chance to be added to this year’s Maftown Heights’ line-up and perform alongside SA’s and the continent’s biggest acts such as HHP, Khuli Chana, AKA and KO.

From a shortlist of 9 #NKOTB, Maftown Heights has announced the below Top 3 winners to perform at this year’s festival, after 14 049 accurate number of votes were cast over a period of 6 days.

  1. K2 – 76,3% of the votes
  2. Jay Makopo – 10.8% of the votes
  3. Priddy Ugly – 3.4% of the votes

“As a festival we are always excited to see South Africa get behind an initiative aimed at unearthing the next wave of SA super stars!” says festival co-founder Refiloe Ramogase, “Thank you to every single person who voted for their favorite #NKOTB. A pity we can’t have all 9 on our stage this year as they all are special talents! Congrats to K2, Jay Mokopo and Priddy Ugly!”
