Jaziel Brothers, Selmor Mtukudzi light up Ekurhuleni at Birchwood
Metro FM Music Award winners and sibling duo, the Jaziel Brothers, will be headlining an evening of talented performances on Friday, April 6, at the Ekurhuleni Comes Alive Jazz Evening. Joining them on the Birchwood Hotel stage is multiple award-winning songstress, Selmor Mtukudzi and Idols 2017 top 3 contestant B0thlale Phora.
Johannesburg-based, RnB-Pop fusion duo, the Jaziel Brothers are not only known for their outstanding performances but also their work in producing award-winning albums and singles for local artists’ Lesego, Kelly Khumalo, Garth Taylor, Jub Jub and Malini. Adamant to set their own genre of music, and inspired by the likes of Boyz to Men, these brothers aim to push the boundaries of well-known genres to create sounds that are full of energy.
Also taking to the stage is Zimbabwean solo musician and actress, Selmor Mtukudzi, who is well-known all over the African continent for her upbeat, dance songs that are about social commentary and daily challenges people face. Daughter to Afro-Jazz artist, Oliver Mtukudzi, and wife to vocalist and guitarist, Tendai Manatsa, with whom she shares two albums, Mtukudzi has won numerous awards in Zimbabwe, America and has been nominated in Nigeria and the UK.
Opening the evening is Idols season 13 contestant, Bothlale Phora, who was a fulltime musician before working his way up to the top three in the competition. Since then he’s shared a stage with Lira and Robby Malinga, and is set to release his latest Afro-Pop single “Mama Ka Nozi No Thando” soon.
An evening of entertainment would not be complete without resident MC Hector Motivator and, to add to the fun, local comedians’ Thulani “TinyTools” Ntlabati and Thabang ER take to the stage to present their take on everyday experiences and observations in their unique humorous way.
The show starts at 8pm sharp.
