SOUTH AFRICA: Hugh Masekela Heritage Festival Announces Line-up.

Published

on

South African artists Thandiswa Mazwai, Sipho ‘Hotstix’ Mabuse, Madala Kunene and Sjava have been confirmed for the 2019 Hugh Masekela Heritage Festival at the Soweto Theatre in Johannesburg, South Africa, on 9 November. The festival, which is in its fifth edition, seeks to uphold Hugh Masekela’s eclectic and broad vision of African culture, music and heritage.

Other confirmed artists include Thabang Tabane, Bombshelter Beast, Sun Xa Experiment, Luma and the New Moon dance ensemble.

“This fifth instalment is a significant and important juncture in the life of the festival,” the Hugh Masekela Heritage Festival organisers said. “The first since Bra Hugh’s passing, held in what would have been his 80th year, as well as debuting at the historic Soweto Theatre, the festival continues to evolve as a magnet for diverse South African performers and audiences.

“The festival will offer a family ambiance with a children’s area, a variety of food and drink, as well as arts and crafts for sale. Complementing this overall atmosphere inside the Soweto Theatre will be the Hugh Masekela No Borders Tribute Installation. The installation features memorabilia, records, recordings, trumpets and photographs of a life loved and lived.”

Festival organiser Mabusha Masekela said: “This year’s centrepiece is a specially curated presentation of Hugh’s six decade-long musical output featuring the unique talents of Thandiswa Mazwai and Bra Hugh’s last touring band. With a nod to the obvious impossibility of this proposition, the aim is to get a taste of Hugh’s variety, while still anchored in his roots. The combination promises to be inspirational."

Thandiswa Mazwai will pay tribute to her friend and mentor Masekela by performing a selection of his songs alongside the Hugh Masekela Band.

“I obviously love Bra Hugh’s music, but I’m very sad that he is no longer with us,” Mazwai said. “I am afraid I might cry on stage. Our friendship was one of the most important relationships of my life, nothing could prepare me for doing Hughy’s music without him, so this is a very special show for me.”

Sipho ‘Hostix’ Mabuse added: “The Hugh Masekela Heritage Festival is a worthy celebration of the legacy of the iconic African giant, Bra Hugh. The boy is still doing it and grazing.”

Tickets to the event are available here.

STARBOY FEST: – Afrobeats Star, Wizkid Brings The House Down.

Published

on

When Wizkid emerges into the packed O2 Arena, he tells his legion of screaming fans that tonight is not about him: “Tonight is about African music.” Afrobeats, which blends African highlife with external influences from R&B to reggae, has a large following among Britain’s African diaspora. Only in recent years has the genre begun to break into mainstream British music. The London leg of his Starboy fest tour celebrates that expansion with a glittering gallery of sound.

On stage, it’s evident that Wizkid deserves his seat at the top of the Afrobeats scene. He’s a magnetic performer. Songs such as Tease Me and Don’t Dull, underpinned by snapping drums and jittery choruses, send feet stomping through the arena. Elsewhere, the crowds sway as he croons the softer, more melodic offerings of Come Closer (featuring Drake) and Energy (Stay Far Away), a collaboration with Skepta.

Throughout the evening, a range of surprise appearances sends raptures through the crowd. Rising star of UK Afrobeats Afro B enthralls with summer anthem Drogba and Tiwa Savage garners a similar reaction with 49-99, while Naira Marley tipped the atmosphere towards frenzy with Soapy. The evening’s biggest surprise was reserved for the last stretch. Burna Boy emerged to the pensive piano-led chords of Ye and, for a few minutes, two of the continent’s biggest stars dance together, the ecstatic crowd thrilled and stunned at the unexpected union.

With energy at a high point, Wizkid brings the curtain down with Ojuelegba, the enchanting drums and biographical lyrics leading the crowd into sermon, topping a night that epitomises both his and Afrobeats’ continued ascent into the mainstream.

REIGN CONCERT’19: Shatta Wale Perform Wonders At The Launch Of Wonderboy Album.

Published

on

As at 9:00 in the PM, technicians dealing with acoustics for a broadcast or musical performance; sound engineers employed to control and normalize the sound and enhance its beauty at the second annual edition of the Reign Concert and Wonder Boy Album launch were still at post fixing sub woofers and line arrays. Maybe, they know what the output will sound like, because immediately the event commenced and through to the to the end, the venue was soaked with good output that has no obstruction that is capable of impeding the success of the show.

I can't omit the stage laser lighting, in perspective, craft of lighting as it applies to the production of theater, dance, opera, and other  performance arts was so on point. From the switch control and choice of colors. The equipment the technicians used for stage lighting (e.g., cabling, dimmers, lighting instruments, controllers) helped made everything visible.

The event, Reign Concert 2019 and the launch of Charles Nii-Armah Mensah's fourth professional studio album titled, The Wonder Boy was scheduled to start at 8.00 pm but witnessed a 2 hour late start (Officially). The eleven-track album has songs such as Halfcast, California, By All Means, and Melissa, which is already gaining massive airplay.

The concert began with opening performances from budding (Up and Coming) musicians who dished out some tunes to prove their worth, as up and coming, in the industry. There is this unique characteristics of Shatta Wale having a great thirst for helping sensational musicians, because of the struggles in the industry. It also witnessed performances from a long list of Ghanaian artistes including Keche, Criss Waddle, Medikal, Kuame Eugene, Fameye, Wendy Shay and Fantana.

Some lucky fans of Shatta Wale who attended his Reign Concert at the Fantasy Dome went home beaming with smiles. The Infinix brand ambassador stopped midway through his performance to gift some lucky fans Infinix phones and other products.

According to the Shatta Movement boss who pointed out the lucky fans at random, he was directed by the Holy Spirit to perform the act as a way of showing appreciation to his fans who have proven their loyalty by supporting him through thick and thin. Whiles thanking his fans, he entreated them to keep working on themselves as a way to better their living conditions and not depend on government. He also asked his fans to connect with each other and help uplift one another.

Shatta Wale mounted stage at 3 AM after a significant intro was done by the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of EIB Network, Ghanaian media personality, Nathan Kwabena Anokye Adisi Bola Ray, and Comedian DKB. A poet also played a role in introducing Ghana's most celebrated Reggae/Dancehall musician. Its amazing how the fans of Shatta Movement are abreast with the lyrics of every song from their president. How did he achieve that?

Shatta Wale tried to change the stereotyped narration of, he, finding it difficult to play along with the band. Well, he tried. He performed three hit songs, Mahama Paper, Chop Kiss with the Patch Bay band. Even though his performance wasn't really encouraging with the band, he pulled some strings after he switched his style of performance. Shatta Movement fans are just music enthusiasts, the only forgiveness they understand is giving them more music and as the artiste is good to go. The attendance wasn't really encouraging because we know Shatta Wale do interms of amassing fanatics. He didn't pull his usual patrons, but the few that represented made the night quite interesting.

The event was geared towards launching the Wonder Boy Album, but other happenings at the event took the shine off the main objective of the album, even though Charles Nii-Armah Mensah performed 5 songs, including Jata Bi, Bad Man off the project. The Reign Concert and Wonder Boy Album launch last till 6:30 am.
