The thrilling performances by the all-female line up had the crowd buzzing as they jammed to past and new hip hop hits from legends to the new school with the likes of Relo, Fifi copper and a surprise performance by Boity of her new single Wuz Dat! Castle Lite took it a step further with a phenomenal all female band.
