Bra Hugh’s relationship with Assupol goes way back, were the legend appears in the TV ad campaign since last year July.

Assupol which celebrates 100 years in the business -is one of SA’s insurers.

“I’m really looking forward to this festival. I always love performing in Soweto and with this wonderful and eclectic array of talent on the line-up, I think it’s going to be a very special day”, says Hugh Masekela, who at 74 years is showing no signs of slowing down.

He has also recently released a new album called “Playing At Work”.

Annelize van Blerk, Head of Corporate Affairs at Assupol, says: “Bra Hugh has a busy international touring schedule and it is only an honour for us to bring him to Soweto, a township that has supported and influenced his music over the years”.

“For us this concert is a fitting way to celebrate 100 years of Assupol, with a legend in the South African music industry who like Assupol, has stood the test of time.”

The Heritage fest will become an annual event.
