So you want entertainment?

South Africa is a veritable treasure trove of talent, and while our TV screens may be slowly becoming more and more infiltrated with international artists, you don’t need to look at the UK or America for quality live entertainment. Our entertainers put their heart into their art, and it is clear in their live performances. And not only that, our local entertainers and influencers are infiltrating the international market!

Everyone’s icon, Bonang recently premiered a documentary film called Public Figure at the Manchester Film Festival to much praise from the audience, and then followed that with the launch of her own Brut and Brut Rosé Méthode Cap Classique bubbly. We couldn’t be more impressed. Not only that, but she also snagged a nomination at the Global Social Awards due to take place in May. She is joined by Gigi LaMayne, Cassper Nyovest, Shekhinah, Aisha Baker, Priddy Ugly, and Sara Langa. Congratulations guys, we couldn’t be more excited and proud to see you take on the world’s stage and show them what we’ve got!

So with all this talent available, why are you still relying on a DVD compilation of international stand-up comedians and Dan from sales to MC your corporate event? Why not give your guests what they really want and deserve – real world-class entertainment.

Let’s look at some categories of entertainment, just to give you small look at what’s available in the South African entertainment market:


The South African comedy scene is a vibrant and diverse arena with a joke for every occasion. Whether you want physical comedy, a comedy/mc combo or just a dude telling one-liners, we are truly spoilt for choice.

Starting from R12 000 ex Vat, securing a comedian for your corporate event is not as daunting as you’d think.

Bands and Musicians

Music is as true to South African’s souls as a Sunday braai and soccer, and it is no surprise that there is a song, genre and act for every generation and taste in the country. Whether something uniquely hip hop, or a mellow indie sound or even a choir or two, the South African music scene is eclectically electric!

Bands can start at R15 000 ex Vat for corporate functions, while a solo musician comes in at R4 500 ex Vat to start. Not your taste? Why not try a duo, such a pianist and singer starting R8 000 ex Vat, or go for the classic quartet for your gala event from R16 000 ex Vat.


What would an event be without a skilled master of ceremonies to move things along and keep guests entertained? Whether you need someone to move your guests from one section of the event to another, or a host to hand out company awards or just a personality to liven things up, an MC is the best way to avoid a room-wide awkward silence. Starting from R18 000 ex Vat for a professional MC, or R30 000 ex Vat for a celebrity.

Keynote Speakers and Facilitators

Perhaps you want a drawcard for your event or someone who compliments the theme such a strong female personality with a story to tell for a women’s day luncheon. That’s where keynote speakers and facilitators come in – we have so many remarkable people in this county, there is a keynote speaker for every type of event. Starting from R15 000 ex Vat for a professional speaker, or R30 000 ex Vat for a celebrity keynote speaker.


Ok so everyone’s been dazzled by a celebrity speaker, and your MC is keeping things moving, why not make it a perfect trifecta with a DJ to get even the grumpiest of guests tapping a toe or two. Starting from R6 500 ex Vat, for a function DJ and R20 000 for a celebrity DJ.

Magicians, Hypnotists and Other Acts

Perhaps you’re looking for a touch of true whimsy, something to make your night a little more than just a cut and paste corporate gala. That’s where someone like a magician might be just the ticket. Try a walkabout magician from R3 500 ex Vat, or bring in a full illusion show starting at R45 000 ex Vat. There’s an act for every taste, including hypnotists from R6 000 ex Vat to circus acts like mimes, jugglers or a full-on circus show starting at R5 500 ex Vat.

Even though this barely scratches the surface of the deep reservoir of talent we have in South Africa, hopefully, it will give you an idea of what we have to offer. To book any of these acts, simply reach out to us, take a look at our website and ask us about what you need for your next event.

And lastly we would like to extend our heartfelt congratulations to Kwesta on his recent marriage to his long-time partner Yolanda. May you have many happy years together!
