Despite the fact that the founder of the movement Rikhado Makhado famously known as Malume Ricky Rick took his life early this year, the festival is set to take place in honour of the late hip hop rapper.
The lineup for the event contain some big name stars as we see the likes of Cassper Nyovest, AKA, Frank Casino, Junior De Rocka, Sjava, unkle Vinny and Sir Trill make the cut for the long list of established and upcoming artist in the industry. Ricky Ricks vision of the even was to promote up and coming artists as well as give them the platform to showcase their talents.
The event sponsors seem to have kept their word as the list of sponsors entail PumaZA, MTVBase, YFM, SAOros, Stimorol, JagermeisterZA sportify, redbullza and many more. [Source: https://twitter.com/CottonFestJHB/status/1509413655309336580?t=ZVKuFRevSqV_kpBJlDtlKg&s=19 ]
