Giyani- Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leadership on Sunday took to twitter as they congratulated Xitsonga musician and living testimony, Benny Mayengani for #FillUpGiyaniStadium.

In the history of Xitsonga music festivals, none of the musicians had managed before to sell more than 19, 500 tickets.

A week before the #FillUpGiyaniStadium event, tickets were sold out in Limpopo province.

According to Tinyiko Maluleke Xilumani brand ambassador, few tickets were left in Gauteng province.

“On Friday, we received  confirmation from Computickets that all the tickets, including VIP and VVIP were sold out on the day”,  she said.

EFF Commander in Chief, Julius Sello Malema and his deputy Floyd Shivambu posted snippets of video clips of Benny Mayengane on twitter performing one of his hit songs ‘Vazaya’ in front of throngs of his die-hard fanatics who had graced the occasion.

Benny Mayengane in the video has been appreciated by a big crowd, and many joined, and sang along to their favourite tunes when the man of the moment continued doing what he did best on stage.
