Unity Concert heads to South Africa

Unity Concert heads to South Africa

The Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) and Emperors Palace will come alive as African Music Stars are set to perform in a world-class Unity Concert on December 19 and 21. 

The summer temperatures are heating up - almost as hot as the lineup for the highly anticipated Unity Concert scheduled to take place on Thursday 19 December 2019 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre and Emperors Palace in Kempton Park, Johannesburg on Saturday 21 December.

Cape Town and Johannesburg will come to life for the weekend, welcoming guests from across the continent. 

Global sensation Antoine Christophe Agbepa Mumba joins the exciting line-up consisting of Mafikizolo, Samthing Soweto and many more. The Congolese Soukous singer, producer, and composer who has several gold records under his belt has appealed to his loyal fans and followers to stand united in order to build a tolerant, open society based on mutual trust and respect. 

Singer Samthing Soweto may have had some run-ins with the law growing up and even served time behind bars but he’s certainly stolen the hearts of many South Africans. 

The singing sensation who appeared on "Idols SA" says: "I know what type of forgiveness one can get from a community and what that means for an artist. You can draw a lot of strength from that. Knowing that your neighbours or those around you want you to win does something for you that you can’t find in any book or song. Your community builds you." While Soweto may have given Mzansi one of the biggest songs of 2017 with "Akanamali", he continues to grab attention both here and abroad and now takes to the Unity Concert stage. 

Additionally, guests will find a variety of off-stage entertainment and activations including a living statue, red carpet entrance, silly stilt walkers, an interactive drum circle and many more entertaining audiences throughout the venue.
