SOUTH African DJ duo Mahoota & Vetkuk arrived in London on Friday, hours before the start of their UK tour.
The tour, originally set for early June, was rescheduled following visa delays.
Organisers had added kwaito star Thebe and DJ Zinhle to the performance line-up, but the two withdrew on Thursday.
Mahoota said: “There was no way we were going to cancel this for a second time. We had to do it for the fans and it’s great to be here on the same day as the opening ceremony of the London Olympics.
“We want to get lost in the Olympic spirit in the company of our fans.”
Mahoota shot to fame as a member of the legendary kwaito group, Trompies. All four members of Trompies launched solo careers, and Mahoota hooked up with Vetkuk to form a DJ duo.
The remix, featuring Oskido and Professor, has followed Mahoota & Vetkuk’s rich vein of hits – from Phul’iqolo, Bayethe, Potoko through to Masella, which was released in April and features vocals from Thebe.
Watch Mahoota & Vetkuk live at these venues:
Friday, July 27: Club Platinum, Tower Street, Coventry, CV1 1JN
Saturday, July 28: Club Solar, 2 Linton Road, Barking, IH11 8HZ
