Here are five of the best moments from Cotton Fest.

1. CASSPER NYOVEST’S ROCKSTAR PERFORMANCE 

Speaking at Riky Rick’s memorial service on 4 March, Sizwe Dhlomo said the Cotton Fest founder planned to “publically make up” with Cassper Nyovest at the festival.

“He’d reached out to him, last year September, they’d spoken even all the way into January and they were actually on good terms at the time of his passing”.

Cassper Nyovest gave an exceptional performance in Riky Rick’s honour and even performed his early hit, Doc Shebeleza. It was the star rapper’s first time performing at Cotton Fest.
