MTN Bushfire Presents: The Collab

Posted by radio On August - 24 - 2021

The Collab is a digital event connecting & uniting the region through a unique music collaboration.

 

This MTN Bushfire collaborative project is a one-of-a-kind musical partnership that has inspired new creative work from two top artists in the region. The Collab event presents the song and exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from the recording, at 6pm on 27th August 2021 on the MTN Bushfire YouTube and Facebook channels, and website (www.bush-fire.com).

 

The MTN Bushfire Collab is a one-of-a-kind musical collaboration that features well-known artists from Eswatini and South Africa, with the aim of inspiring new creative work and supporting dynamic new work during a time of limited arts mobility and connectivity. Two of the top performers in the region have come together to create a unique song and share their creative journey with fans and Fire Starters around the globe.

 

MTN Bushfire is thrilled to reveal the stars of the Collab:

Zolani Mahola & Sands

The One Who Sings (Zolani Mahola) is most famously known as the former lead singer of the internationally acclaimed pan-African South African music group Freshlyground and has gone on to create a global reputation as an extraordinary singer, songwriter, actress and storyteller.

 

Sands is one of Eswatini’s best loved talents. He is a multi-talented guitarist, songwriter, performing artist and Afro soul singer who rose to fame in 2015 when he won Best Radio Song of 2015 (for his song Vuma) and Male Artist of the Year at the National Arts and Culture Awards (NACA).

 

The Collab has been a stunning success, with both artists exuberantly upbeat about the experience to connect musically and creatively face-to-face, something artists have not been able to do for almost two years. Sands has this to say: “Something special has come to life. Zolani is an amazing talent and I have been privileged with this opportunity to create fire with her. I can’t wait for the world to hear this jam!” While The One Who Sings states, “My collaboration with Sands has been full of ease and joy. It’s such a pleasure to connect with a fellow musician who is skilled and capable but beyond that who is eager and open to what the collaborative process can bring. In this case it brought a bright, bright continental fire and we can’t wait to share it with the world!”

 

This infectious spirit will be shared with the world with the digital event on 27th August with a free broadcast on the MTN Bushfire website.

 

The Collab was born out of the desire to inspire game-changing creative narratives that will facilitate the creation of a dynamic body of new creative work, weaving together Africa’s rich & diverse musical genres,reflecting current issues, and involving a diverse range of profile and up-and-coming artists.

 

The Collab digital event will form part of MTN Bushfire’s 2021 Digital Series, that also features electrifying performances, an artist empowerment workshop on the 18th of September, exclusive content, and up-close access to artists. The Series will conclude with one of the most exciting multicultural Digital Festivals to be seen on the African continent, The MTN Bushfire 2021 Digital Festival on 24th September, featuring customized and upgraded immersive online experiences, enabling fans to safely enjoy and share the magic that is MTN Bushfire.
