Monique Bingham and Mi Casa are set to perform at the 2016 Miss South Africa Pageant to be held at Carnival City on Saturday, 19 March.
MiCasa, comprising of Dr Duda (piano), J’Something (vocalist and guitarist) and trumpeter Mo-T, will take to the stage with their latest hit Don’t Wanna Be Your Friend.
Monique Bingham – performing Deep in The Bottom – has been responsible for some of the most poignant, soulful jazz infused house music of the past 17 years.
Since her first visit to South Africa in 2011, New York’s Bingham is so entrenched in South African house culture that her most recent hit The Pap was a tribute to South African food staple chesa nyama.
The line-up also includes Prime Circle, Sketchy Bongo and Shekhinah who will entertain the live audience as well as the thousands of TV viewers watching the broadcast on M-Net, channel 101 and Mzansi Magic, channel 161 on DStv from 17:00 until 19:00.
The 12 finalists who are in competition to be named Miss South Africa 2016 are: Elizabeth Molapo (Bloemfontein, Free State); Felicia Muwayi (Nelspruit, Mpumalanga); Luyolo Mngonyama (Umtata, Eastern Cape); Marciel Hopkins (Paarl, Western Cape); Mikaela Oosthuizen (Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape); Ntandoyenkosi Kunene (Mkhondo, Mpumalanga); Reabetswe Sechoaro (Pretoria East, Gauteng); Ronette Chambers (Cape Town, Western Cape); Sarah Botes (Vanderbijlpark, Gauteng); Schané Venter (Alberton, Gauteng); Sharon-Rose Khumalo (Pretoria, Gauteng) and Tayla Skye Robinson (Roodepoort, Gauteng).
