SA’s latest hip hop sensation Biggy will take the stage at the much-anticipated PUMA School of Speed #1 at the Dal Josaphat Athletics Stadium (Paarl) on Wednesday 22 January 2020.
“It’ll be the first time that I perform at the PUMA School of Speed so I am very keen to check out the vibe and find out what it’s all about,” admits Biggy. “I’m looking forward to seeing the crowd enjoying my music. They can look forward to a great vibe, awesome stories and some of my newer tracks. ‘Dames’ will obviously be part of the lineup, as will one of my new tracks called Richboy. My big plans for 2020 is to be bigger than 2019. This includes going overseas, dropping more juicy tracks, shooting insane music videos and playing some big shows all over South Africa.”

Vice Principal’s Message: Junior track & field stars can look forward to meeting South African middle-distance runner and 2020 PUMA School of Speed Vice Principal, Gena Löfstrand in the Vice Principal’s office at each stadium.
According to Löfstrand the PUMA School of Speed Series has been extremely important for South African athletics. “The Series brings together athletics fans, and future champions from all over our country,” says Löfstrand. “It gives athletes the opportunity to showcase their talent at a well-supported, world class event. It’s something for young athletes to set goals for and work hard towards. The atmosphere at the PUMA School of Speed is what makes it so special. It’s fun, exciting, and inspiring. It’s events like this that keep athletics alive! I’m proud to be working alongside PUMA to help grow athletics in South Africa.”
