The Afternoon Drive always ends on a high note on Fridays with #702Unplugged.

Some of South Africa's most renowned musicians came to bless listeners with great sounds and heated performances.

We have put together some of our top performances from 2016.

One of South Africa's most loved duos, Mafikizolo, played songs from their different albums - from Emlanjeni, to the 2013's Khona and now Colours of Africa.
