Celebrating and Keeping SA Music alive and burning through the inaugural A Night with Legends
Johannesburg – 11 July 2022 – It is official, a concert dedicated to legends will make its debut this year on 1 October. The event is aimed at honouring legends in the entertainment industry, particularly music. This year will kick off with a Kwaito Legends Concert with heart-throbbing performances from the likes of Mdu Masilela, Thebe, Arthur Mafokate and Kabelo Mabalane, among others.
The organisers from A Night with Legends had this to say about the event; “This has been on the radar for the longest time, and unfortunately for the past two years the world was brought to a standstill owing to the Covid-19 pandemic. We feel this is long overdue, and are excited to stage this concert that is aimed at bringing people together to enjoy the timelessness of Kwaito Music, while we also honour the legends that made this genre one to be reckoned with. We want to bring back the ‘kwai-ness’ of this genre, and have masses dancing to the beat. The uniqueness of Kwaito music is that it has given birth to other genres today – It is the mother of dance music here in South Africa, and its sound is uniquely Mzansi.”
A Night with Legends Concert concept’s purpose is to recognise and promote excellence of the entertainment industry through music. Music is a powerful tool that influences people’s perceptions and outlook on various things in life. “Decades ago Kwaito music set stages on fire, and this is the best time to bring back these artists on stage and remind people that life is for the living, and that we ought to be grateful that we are still here,” said the organiser.
The inaugural event will also pay tribute to the departed legends including Mandoza, Brown Dash and Mshoza, with renditions of their popular songs
