Mafik­i­zolo to bring the sun down

Weekend Argus (Sunday Edition) - - METRO - WEEK­END ARGUS REPORTER

MAFIK­I­ZOLO have been pi­o­neers for South Africa’s Afro-pop mu­sic scene for more than 20 years, but this month will be their first gig at Kirsten­bosch. The duo of Nh­lanhla Nciza and Theo Kgosinkwe will per­form at the botan­i­cal gar­den for the Sum­mer Sun­set Con­cert series where they will be sure to play songs from their last al­bum, 20, which cel­e­brated their years in the mu­sic busi­ness.

The group’s nine stu­dio al­bums have helped them to ce­ment their spot as one of Africa’s premier groups and they con­tinue to tour around Africa.

Their style cel­e­brates African cul­tures as they dab­ble in Herero head­gear from Namibia and the pleated Tsonga skirt from South Africa.

Their per­for­mance at Kirsten­bosch is sure to be a smor­gas­bord of sounds and in­flu­ences of a cos­mopoli­tan pop group if their last al­bum is any­thing to judge what will be per­formed.

Ac­cord­ing to the group’s web­site, shortly af­ter they shot to fame in the late 1990s they were in­volved in a se­ri­ous car ac­ci­dent, which left Nciza hos­pi­talised. When the group started to find their feet and suc­cess af­ter the ac­ci­dent, the third mem­ber of Mafik­i­zolo, Te­bogo Madin­goane, was killed by a gun­shot wound af­ter a road rage in­ci­dent. Mafik­i­zolo will per­form at Kirsten­bosch on Jan­uary 27. Tick­ets are avail­able from R150 on webtick­ets. co.za.
