Cape Town - Sun International has joined forces with some of the biggest names in music, fashion and entertainment to ensure a perfect 2020 vision for the Sun Met - Africa’s Richest Race Day.

The not to be missed showcase on every social calendar will take place on Saturday, February 1, 2020 at Kenilworth Racecourse.

Africa is home to future kings who will take over the world, and Black Coffee is certainly living up to that moniker.

“Africa Is Not A Jungle” featuring host and creator Black Coffee, will provide the perfect soundtrack to the Sun Met 2020 experience. Joining him on-stage will be the highly acclaimed DJ who is making waves in international waters, Themba (formerly known as Euphonik), and this year’s DJ Awards Electronic Music Awards - Ibiza 2019: Best Afro House DJ, Da Capo.

Joining the Visionaries for Sun Met 2020, Sun International is proud to announce a collaboration with the King of Creativity, Trevor Stuurman. Stuurman will bring his unique interpretation of African design, culture, and visual aesthetic. Having travelled to many countries in and around Africa, he aims to capture and encapsulate “Your Africa” in a visually immersive storytelling format. These stories will be shared with the world to experience on social media and will inspire the viewer to share their story 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 sights found only in Africa. Imprint ZA’s flamboyant, brave, and bold creations reflect our African roots whilst displaying the uncapped potential in this continent. They will be joining the fashion roster alongside Palesa Mokubung who has revolutionized the fashion industry as an African forerunner who paved the way for future African designers collaborating with international retail giants.

The leading ladies of groove Courtnaé Paul and Holly Rey have taken the centre stage as burning 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 the visionaries of this age, who know how to get down on the dance-floor. SAMA award winning artist Holly Rey is passionate about preserving the sounds of South Africa through house music. She has forged her own path in the music industry and aligns with the theme for this year. Basel Grey joins this star-studded host of visionaries after creating the Sun Met 2020 soundtrack “Do You”.

Queen of luxury Bonang Matheba and “Global African Influencer of the Year” brings all the glamour to Sun Met with the House of BNG MCC as the Official Celebration Partner. Reigning alongside her will be Miss South Africa, Zozibini Tunzi, who will bring her redefinition of beauty as she ushers in a new era of diversity at an international level.

Anthony Leeming, Sun International Chief Executive Officer commented: “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 – where imagination comes to life in all aspects.”

This stands true for all the visionaries collaborating with Sun Met. These trailblazers continue to push the needle and have taken the African aesthetic to new heights.
