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.
