Oliver Mtukudzi is one of the continent’s undisputed music legends as a globally recognised cultural icon. His career began in the 70s and can you believe he has over 65 albums under his belt.
This August Kaya FM 95.9, home of the Afropolitan, and Bassline Live have the honour and privilege to host the Legend and his friends at the Lyric Theatre at Gold Reef City.
Mtukudzi is the head of Pakare Paye Arts Centre that offers music and a diversity of art forms, platforming and building talent. Accompanying him on stage on the 31st of August will be musicians from the academy, including Fiona Gwena on Vocals and Hosho, Craig Chandamare on drums, Ashton Nyahora on guitar and vocals, Charles Njekesa on bass and Donald Kanyuchi on guitar and vocals.
With his signature husky voice, he has earned a devoted following across Africa and beyond, and his performances in the South African territory are a rare and special treat for his fans, with over a year having passed since he last performed in South Africa.
Also on board for this event is stylish urban outfitters Brentwood Clothing, who, as new affiliates of the venture, are standing behind the rich arts and culture scene in SA through this musical series.
Having toured around the world several times, Oliver is no stranger to delivering top notch performances and this show promises to bring us his distinctive Tuku Music style up close and personal with artists he has groomed and personally hand-picked for the show.
