The 23rd of January 2022 is the 4th anniversary of the passing of South African iconic musician and cultural activist Hugh Masekela. To remember him and celebrate his life, Hugh Masekela Heritage Foundation and Assupol will host a virtual Hugh Masekela Heritage Festival on http://www.skyroomlive.com at 20:00 CAT.
“My biggest obsession is to show Africans, and the world, who the people of Africa really are,” Hugh Masekela once said. With a line-up that features music, dance, and spoken word, this year’s audience will be treated to performances by Msaki, Langa Mavuso, Mandisi Dyantyis, Berita, Muneyi, Gcina Mhlophe, and Tsogang Bana Dance Group, as well as tributes to two of Bra Hugh’s great musical compatriots and collaborators Sibongile Khumalo, with her daughter Ayanda Khumalo, and Tsepo Tshola, with local artist Mandla Ntlaks. Expect to be delighted by an eclectic mix of hits and Masekela bits. The show is hosted by comedian Kagiso Lediga who once presented a TV show called The Bantu Hour with Bra Hugh.
