The Coronet Theatre opened its doors over 100 years ago and to this day has managed to retain all of it's art deco features. Originally conceived as a public hall, it appeared as Theatre Royal in 1872 but a fire in 1878 lead to renovations. One year later The Elephant and Castle Theatre opened it's doors to the public and a very young Charlie Chaplin soon graced the stage. Nowadays the Coronet Theatre plays host to some of London's most iconic concerts and is the perfect setting for the Sounds Of Africa concert holding a capacity of over 3000 people.

Kent has established himself as one of the top producers in South Africa after his productions and expertise has been featured in over 50% of South Africa's biggest compilations since 2005 & with the release of his solo debut in 2008, gained him the 2008/2009 SAMA award for "best urban dance album". Kent is destined to storm the charts, destroy dance floors and calm hoards of hungry fans and it is for this reason that he is one of the main headliners for the Sounds of Africa concert in London.
