South Africa’s diverse heritage at Kovsie Extravaganza

Lovers of music, dance, and poetry experienced a spectacular Kovsie Extravaganza on Saturday 12 September 2015 at the University of the Free State (UFS). The Kovsie Kerk on the Bloemfontein Campus came alive with performances by talented students, local artists, and the two main acts of the evening.

Spectators enjoyed acts representing our country’s diverse heritage. From the indigenous choral music of the Qwaqwa Campus students, to Afrikaans Alternative Rock, Hip Hop, Soul, RnB, Kwaito, and Spoken Word poetry, the show was nothing short of a cultural melting pot.

Francois van Coke had the crowd on their feet, adding splits and cartwheels to electrifying sound. Mafikizolo had the audience nostalgic as they ended the night with throwback songs.

The 2015 Kovsie Extravaganza achieved its objective of presenting entertainment galore.
