Project aims to cel­e­brate le­gends in their life­times

CEL­E­BRATE our le­gends while they are still alive. This is the driv­ing force be­hind My Legacy – an or­gan­i­sa­tion which seeks to recog­nise those who have made a mark in their re­spec­tive in­dus­tries while they can still ap­pre­ci­ate the ges­ture.

In 2016, the or­gan­i­sa­tion cel­e­brated late mu­si­cal mae­stro Rob­bie Malinga while he was still alive with a con­cert that fea­tured some of his pro­tégés like Ntando, Kelly Khu­malo, Musa Suk­wene, Naima Kay and Za­hara. The star died the fol­low­ing year in De­cem­ber.

My Legacy on Thurs­day re­vealed plans to cel­e­brate ac­claimed gospel mu­si­cian and busi­ness­man Bishop Ben­jamin Dube. The con­cert is sched­uled for March at the Mo­saiek Teatro in Joburg. Mu­si­cians like Ju­dith Se­phuma, Khaya Mthethwa and Ntokozo Mbambo will be in the line-up.

Dube, ac­com­pa­nied by his mu­si­cian son Buhle, ap­pre­ci­ated the ges­ture. “It’s a great ex­pe­ri­ence and it is en­cour­ag­ing. I be­lieve this gives one a big­ger re­spon­si­bil­ity with what God has de­posited in my life. I have to leave it be­hind and not die with it,” he said.

The bishop’s solo ca­reer started in 1986. He has worked with many

gospel artists in­clud­ing the leg­endary Joy­ous Cel­e­bra­tion which was co-founded by Mthunzi Namba, Lin­de­lani Mkhize and Jabu Hlong­wane.
