Afro-jazz singer James Sakala was one of the entertainers at the Lusaka July alongside Kuni, the Afro Red, DJ Sebastien Dutch, El Mukuka and DJ V Jeezy.
Of the event, he says: “Lusaka July 2018 is no longer an idea, it is here to stay and I am honoured to have performed at the prestigious event to a crowd of beautiful Zambians.”
Stella Artois, Stanbic Bank Zambia, Air Namibia, South African Airways and The Terrace Apartments were the biggest sponsors of the event.
“The incorporation of corporate entities in the Lusaka July has proven that the event has the potential to expand the reach of lifestyle events throughout Zambia, promoting tourism including Zambian luxury products and services,” the PR Girl Media statement reads.
