Play Your Part Africa Live Stream Concert Featuring King Tha

Thandiswa Mazwai

The lockdown levels might remain stringent as a result of the deadly pandemic , but the entertainment never ceases. The Department of Sport, Arts and Culture is working with Brand South Africa in association with Constitution Hill, to present the Play Your Part Africa Live Stream Concert featuring the legend Thandiswa Mazwai.

King Tha will perform live on the 30th of May 2020 at the Women’s Jail at Constitution Hill in Johannesburg, in commemoration of Africa Day and you can stream it for free. The concert will also see  other legendary artists from all corners of Africa take centre stage for a good cause.

The stakeholders of the event all had glowing remarks to say about the initiative. Brand South Africa Board Chairperson Thandi Tobias-Pokolo highlighted some of the take-aways from the live stream concert. “This initiative provides us with the opportunity to come together, in our uniqueness, against an invisible enemy that knows no borders or nationality,” said Ms. Tobias-Pokolo.

“The work of Brand South Africa is centered on building pride, patriotism and active citizenship and hopes for the actualization of social cohesion. Our collaboration with platforms such as the Bassline produced Play Your Part Africa Live Stream Concert, gives us the platform to promote social integration and intra-Africa collaboration,” she added.

The Department of Sport, Arts and Culture’s participation in this initiative was heralded by the Director-General Mr. Vusimuzi Mkhize, who said “As a department, our involvement in this initiative is intended to amplify the mandate of Africa Month which promotes Pan Africanism and African Cultural Renaissance. Africa Month is regarded as a platform which advances the work of the AU institution and its programs towards the attainment of its vision – namely an integrated, prosperous and peaceful Africa, driven by its own citizens and representing a dynamic force in the global arena.”

“Key for us as a department is that we continue to create and identify opportunities which can provide relief to the sector during this COVID-19 pandemic by promoting the work of our sector; its artists whilst advocating for the tangible growth of a socially cohesive society”, Mr. Mkhize affirmed.

The concert will be produced by Bassline Live, who have been behind many notable gigs and festivals for the past 25 years. Speaking on their involvement, Brad Holmes of Bassline Live said “With the Covid 19 restrictions in place, Bassline Live’s annual festival celebrating Africa Day, which, is traditionally held at the Constitution Hill in May, has been postponed till further notice.

Bearing this in mind, we are very amped up and proud to be producing this live streamed concert for Brand SA and contributing to Play Your Part Africa by bringing our very own superstar songstress Thandiswa Mazwai into people’s homes via their screens to celebrate, commemorate and enjoy what it is to be African, and at the same time staying safe.”

The Women’s Jail at Joburg’s Constitution Hill is a significant place for Thandiswa, who will be making her live streaming debut in the age of Covid 19. “So many historic events have happened at the Con Hill, this is undoubtedly also one of them, as the world is changed by Corona, I feel honoured to be able to share positive vibrations throughout the mama land and the world.”

The legendary singer continues “Corona has had devastating effects of people’s lives around the world. I am afraid to leave home and do something so social, but we still require the same bravery today as we did before Corona. History is made by the brave, so as I prepare for this with my band I’m going to wear my mask, keep safe distances, avoid communal surfaces and wash my hands with soap. What a crazy way of being. When President Ramaphosa said kissing and hugging were a thing of the past I shed a tear. The healing power of music is needed now more than ever.”

Constitution Hill CEO Dawn Robertson says “Constitution Hill is proud to be part of the Play Your Part movement. The site is a living symbol of the past hardships our nation has overcome in its fight against oppression and injustice. In the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic let us be reminded of our struggle heritage and draw on our ability to overcome even the direst of crises.

The Women’s Jail once incarcerated icons and heroines of our Liberation Struggle – Winnie Mandela; Albertina Sisulu; Fatima Meer and Barbara Hogan. Their leadership in the fight for women’s rights; equality and freedom were crucial in laying the foundation for our democracy and will continue to inspire women to rise for generations to come.

There is no better synergy for this project than having Thandiswa Mazwai, a strong female activist of our times perform here. May the spirit of the phenomenal women who came before her, be an inspiration. Together we can build a better Africa and a better world through social transformation, nation building and social cohesion. This initiative in an enabler of work we are all committed to doing towards transcending borders in Africa –  our great continent where the umbilical cord of humanity lays buried.”

Idris Elba Hosts AKA & Sho Madjozi for the Africa Day Benefit Concert

Idris Elba to host the live concert on Africa Day!

Published

Idris Elba

Next week Monday marks Africa Day. To celebrate the auspicious occasion on May 25, ViacomCBS Networks Africa and YouTube will throw an Africa Day Benefit Concert aimed at assisting COVID-19 relief programmes in the continent. These huge brands have partnered with Idris Elba who brings more than just his good looks to the table.

The British actor is also a renowned deejay that has performed in Coachella to thousands of adoring fans. His repertoire of tricks will surely be on full display as the host of the concert that you’d be correct in suggesting that it is close to his heart.

Elba and his wife Sabrina tested positive with the Coronavirus in March despite showing no signs of the pandemic. Following a period in quarantine, he revealed that he and his wife had recovered from the scare.

RELATED: RECAP OF LADY GAGA’S ONE WORLD TOGETHER SHOW

Taking to Twitter to promote the concert, Idris singled out a couple of Africa’s superstars that are slated to perform. South Africa will be represented by Sho Madjozi and AKA, both whom have been having a relatively good year thus far.

Sho Madjozi won the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Award earlier this year to go with her BET Award from last year.

AKA branched out of his comfort zone to drop the AKATV App to supply his fans with weekly fresh content during the lockdown. The duo will be joined by the continent’s galaxy of stars such as Nigeria’s Burna Boy, Tiwa Savage and Yemi Alade.

Other parts of Africa that will be represented are Kenyan pop-soul group Sauti Sol, Tanzania’s Diamond Platnumz, Congolese musician Fally Ipupa and many others.

Don’t forget to stream the concert on  MTV Base, DStv channel 322 and on YouTube on Africa Day May 25.
