HIP HOP LEGEND : CASSPER NYOVEST HEADLINES SNEAKER EXCHANGE AT NEWTOWN JUNCTION
This August, Newtown Junction saw an influx of sneaker fanatics, flocking in and out of the creative hub of Johannesburg. Both young and old sneaker lovers came to celebrate Africa’s largest sneaker trading event – the Sneaker Exchange. The event was headlined by Cassper Nyovest’s “Family Tree” merchandise launch.
With Cassper being the main attraction, Newtown Junction saw over one thousand attendees at the Sneaker Exchange – it was definitely the place to be for pop culture curators such as Gigi Lamayne, TTGO, Bontle Modiselle and Priddy Ugly, who all came out to show support of the budding sneaker culture in Southern Africa.
Also spotted – in true YFM style, was DJ Sabby of #TheBestDrive – who played the master of ceremony fantastically well, while morning drive host DJ Ankle Tap, blazed the city’s landscape with his one’s and two’s
“The partnership with Sneaker Exchange and Cassper Nyovest was a no-brainer. He is a perfect representative of the very best of South African youth culture. That is why we were able to bring Joburgers an experience they’ll never forget,” – adds Maria Mailula, Newtown Junction General Manager
So we here at the Stylista did more research and have found out that the Family Tree store is actually situated in hop no.14, Workshop Newtown – right next to Newtown Junction Mall. The entrance is close to Potato Shed & Cappello!
