The occasion itself was a success and took place at popular Sunnyside club House 22. Roughly 300 people attended over the course of the night, and the atmosphere was friendly and relaxed. The artists included such talents as DJ Khathu, Enosoul, and King Kong, all Venda artists.

Mabaya said that he was not expecting so many people, and that the money made from the entrance fees was merely an afterthought. The primary purpose of the event was to show of f various Venda talents, a purpose he felt was fulfilled.

The group plans to run further events in this vein and are hoping that it continues to grow. They wish to provide a platform for a people who are marginalised and ignored in South Africa, and to show that there are talents that need to be recognised.
