Grammy-winner Queen Latifah took to the streets as part of the Aids Health Foundation’s “Keep the Promise 2016” march and concert, known as KT2016 in Durban on Saturday.

Latifah was accompanied by 7000 marchers, who walked as a call-to-action advocacy campaign to governments and international funding bodies to increase funds for the prevention and eventual cure to the HIV and Aids epidemic.

Latifah was accompanied by her bodygaurd. She walked for three kilometres, before being ushered off into her vehicle, which then followed the march.

She walked with eThekwini mayor James Nxumalo, MEC for health Sibongiseni Dhlomo and Gail Johnson, mother of Nkosi Johnson [late child Aids activist], as well as other public figures.

Latifah performed at the concert alongside US rapper Common.

Common however, was not at the march.

South African performers included Mi Casa, Big Nuz and B Flow.

The concert was held at Kingsmead Stadium.

Latifah even posed with one supporter who was wheel-chair-bound, according to Times Live.

The woman, Monica Cele has brittle bone disease.

She said to the publication; “I am just a woman from Durban who wanted to be part of this march because I support the cause”.
