Filling up the Dome
Nyovest (Real name, Refiloe Phoolo) has enjoyed 100 percent success rate in all of his campaigns and #FillUpTheDome has been no exception. The Maftown star has shown the various entities and participants that exist in South African music that it is possible for a South African act to headline and sell out tickets to an event at a venue that has, up until now, been reserved for international superstars.
