The magical Zakes Bantwini to celebrate his 20th year in the industry, in style. In Durban!

GRAMMY Award winner Zakes Bantwini to commemorate 20 years’ in the music industry with a spectacular concert.

It happens at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli ICC, Durban on July 5.

And it made sense to host the celebrations in his own backyard, born in Umlazi, a township only a stone-throw away from Durban City.

His fans can look forward to a spectacular show, featuring performances of Zakes greatest hits and special guest appearances from fellow renowned artists.

“Collaboration has always been at the heart of my success. Working with talented artists and creating music that resonates on a global scale has been incredibly fulfilling. As I look back on the past 20 years, I’m proud of what we’ve achieved and excited for what the future holds,” waxed lyrically Zakes Bantwini, born Zakhele Madida, in his designer spectacles.

Under his belt, he has amassed endorsement from huge corporates namely Mercedes Benz SA, that also form part of the celebrations.

This year marks a significant milestone in his illustrious career, celebrating 20 years of culture-shifting contributions to the music industry, that began in 2004 while completing his studies at the Durban University of Technology.

That same year, he founded his own record label, Mayonie Productions, laying the foundation for a career that would see him become one of South Africa’s most influential music figures.

His wife and entrepreneur Nandi will host the show, alongside Boity, Minnie Dlamini, Kwenzo Ngcobo, Heazy, Robot Boii, Mpho Popps and Tbo- Touch.

Guests and fans will be kept on their toes with performances by Sjava, Young Stunna, Major League DJz, Sun EL Musician, Kelvin Momo, Mi Casa, Drega, Stanky, man of the moment Zakes Bantwini, and special guest, Joyous Celebration- who have made Durban their home as a result of sold-out shows.

Early Bird tickets can now be purchased online here: https://www.howler.co.za/events/zakes-20th-anniversary-concert-5-july-2024-59cd/

The 20-years’ celebration concert also serves as a precursor to the much awaited Durban July racehorse, scheduled for July 6.
