Prince Kaybee from South Africa, will also feature as guest artist bringing the number of guest artists to two, for the first time in the Mosi Day of Thunder history.
“This is our way of supporting and promoting progressive and trendsetting Zambian music that is breaking new ground,” said Zambian Breweries country head of marketing Sibajene Munkombwe.

We pride ourselves in seeing people enjoy a good time in a good environment with good music and the best beverages,” said Mr Munkombwe, who also reiterated his message urging festival goers to be responsible in their drinking.
