Music legends to come alive at the City of Champions Fan Fest


Young and old are invited to the FIFA Fan Fest Tshwane at the Centurion Cricket Grounds on Friday 9 July from 14h00 for the Legends Live Music Spectacular, and eight hour concert featuring 27 prominent South African artists from the 80’s and 90’s.


The Legends’ concert line-up includes artists that produced hits in genres like “bubblegum music” as well as disco greats that have disappointed critics and stood the test of time. The ever-colorful Doctor Victor, PJ Powers, Pat Shange, Ali Katt and Zizi Kongo form part of the yesteryear’s greats that will grace the stage. Yvonne Chaka Chaka, who made traditional African beer an instant hit with her song Umqombhothi, and Mercy Phakela, who without a doubt increased revenue for takkie retailers with her smash hit “ayashisa amateki”, will add to the mix.


The host for the day will be the ever exuberant comedian and all-rounder, filmmaker and kwaito artist, Senyaka.


The World Cup has not only presented an opportunity for Africa to change perceptions about the continent, but has provided a platform for the country and the continent to showcase its diversity.  It is in this spirit that City of Tshwane has offered some of South Africa’s greatest talent the opportunity to showcase to our visitors the richness of our arts and culture. These legends have shaped the course of the music industry and inspired most of today’s young talent, evident in the significant number of artists sampling and remixing some of their hits.  

“It is only befitting that the City of Tshwane, the City of Champions, pay homage to the champions of yesteryear music,” said Godfrey Nkwane, CEO of the City’s 2010 Unit.   


 This concert, unlike the match days at the Fan Fest, has a nominal entry fee.  Tickets  are R30 at Computicket or R50 at the gate.
