The Sun Met 2020 adds more
African Visionaries as ambassadors
Sun International has joined forces with some of the biggest names in music, fashion and entertainment to ensure that The Sun Met, Africa's Richest Race Day, delivers on the promise of thrilling entertainment.
Africa is home to some immense talents – and Black Coffee is certainly one of the new wave of continental movers and shakers. "Africa is Not a Jungle", featuring the superstar DJ, will provide the perfect soundtrack to the Sun Met 2020 experience. Joining him on-stage will be the acclaimed Themba (formerly known as Euphonik), and the winner of this year's DJ Award for Best Afro House DJ, Da Capo.
The leading ladies of groove, Courtnaé Paul and Holly Rey, have taken centre stage as stars in the entertainment industry. Courtnaé Paul, who rose to fame as a dancer, choreographer and a master on the decks, will cook up a killer set that speaks to visionaries who know how to get down. SAMA-winning Holly Rey is passionate about preserving the sounds of South Africa through house music. She has forged her own path in the music industry. Basel Grey also join this star-studded host of visionaries after creating the Sun Met 2020 theme "Do You".
A visual feast
Sun International is also proud to announce a collaboration with the King of Creativity, Trevor Stuurman, who will be joining the Visionaries for Sun Met 2020 with his unique interpretation of African design, culture and visual aesthetic. Having travelled to many African countries, he aims to capture and encapsulate "Your Africa" in a visually immersive storytelling format. These stories will be shared on social media to inspire viewers to share their stories at Africa's Richest Race Day.
Masa Mara joins the fashion narrative to offer an immersive tale that will elicit passion and courage in the wearer and portray the creativity inspired by the sights of Africa. Imprint ZA's flamboyant, brave and bold creations reflect African roots and the uncapped potential of the continent. They will be joining the roster alongside Palesa Mokubung, who has paved the way for African designers collaborating with international retail giants.
Queen of Luxury and Global African Influencer of the Year Bonang Matheba brings all the glamour to Sun Met with her House of BNG MCC as the Official Celebration Partner. Reigning alongside her will be Miss South Africa, Zozibini Tunzi, who redefined beauty as she ushered in a new era of diversity at an international level.
We want to pay homage to the visionaries in 2020 by affording a platform at the Sun Met, where creatives of all kinds can showcase their ideas through fashion, music and horse racing. Imagination will come to life in all aspects. Anthony Leeming, Sun International CEO
