Events Manager, Creative Entertainment and Marketing company; Hooch Events presented Hooch Late Nights 2021 featuring two well known artists that are promising rappers in the new age of South African Hip Hop; Blxckie and Lucasraps. The event was hosted on October 2 at Vegas Bar & Eatery at 12 Station Street in East London.

The Hooch Late Nights event featuring these trending young South African rappers was a perfect storm of good timing, perfect setting and fulfilled demand for the East London youth as the hype over these young South African rappers has been all over South Africa making it an experience for East London youth to attend an event featuring Blxckie and Lucasraps.

The event held at Vegas Bar & Eatery was running from 4pm until the South African curfew time. Additional artists who were included in the line-up of the event included: GQUE, Bhut Legend, Bhenjii_SA, COS EYE, Dj Vinly and many more. Majority of the artists that were featured are rappers, one of the music genres trending the most in South African youth culture is Hip-Hop. The MC’s who kept the show and audience moving throughout performances were King Keeks and Dreamsgal.

Blxckie, who was the highlight of the night as he is a favourite to many, described his East London audience as one of the craziest crowds!

“East London was one of the craziest crowds, y’all really went up. Last night was at the top, be back soon,” said Blxckie who created the buzz of the night. It was almost as if he had a checklist in front of him: first, get the audience to sing along to a hit; second, perform the popular tracks; last, say “Ye Ye Ye Ye” (his most prominent and iconic tag) at every possible moment during a song.

Lucasraps, well know for his lyricism and freestyle skills, received praises from fans and he described the night as a movie!

After the announcement by Hooch Events of these two artists coming to East London, young fans were excited and overwhelmed. The rap talent, Blxckie and Lucasraps kept that same energy in their fans as they delivered fire and smoke throughout the night.

A perfect way to enter the month of October and the Lockdown Level One for most of East London’s youth and the Eastern Cape in general as some of the audience members were from towns outside of East London.
