BRITISH pop star and deejay Sonique will debut three new tracks at the Joburg Gay Pride Parade official after-party.
Sonique will perform live for 30 minutes, backed by her dancers, followed by a two-hour deejay set that is guaranteed to set the dance floor alight.
Sonique says “I had such a great time last time I visited and it’s an honour to be heading to the Johannesburg gay Pride. I’m gonna do my best to give the gay people of Joburg the best time ever.”
The official Joburg Pride after-party will include an exclusive VIP lounge overlooking the dance floor and stage, with dedicated bar and toilet facilities, a women-only room and bar, as well as a men-only section nicknamed The Locker Rooms.
All profits from the after-party will go towards Joburg Pride.
