PL: We have three concerts this week; one is on the 17th of February 2017 and two on the 18th of February 2017. All the shows are in Mamelodi, Tshwane Metro or Pretoria area. These shows are our way of giving back to our community. We are not going to get paid for our performance. Giving back to community is a good thing because not everything is about money but for the love of music and people around us. We are nothing without people who are supporting. As it is the month of love February, we are going to perform our new track titled Valentine yeah…….
