During the time, the area surrounding the resort was independent from South Africa but according to local law, was granted permission to provide entertainment. Since then, Sun City has grown into a popular holiday destination. In the past, the resort attracted prominent celebrities such as Frank Sinatra, Queen, Elton John, Sarah Brightman and Tina Turner.
During the apartheid years, many international artists formed part of an activist grouped named, Artists United Against Apartheid, vowing never to perform within the borders of Sun City.
Since the fall of apartheid, the region surrounding Sun City was officially incorporated within the borders of South Africa. The holiday resort continues attracting local, international travellers and even plays host to international events."
