Afro pop sensation, Mafikizolo, one of the most popular duo acts to come out of Africa will be touring down under in August 2018, on the 24th at Max Watt’s in Melbourne and on the 25th at Metro City in Perth. Backed by an accomplished live band and energetic dancers, audiences can look forward to an energetic and unforgettable performance.
Fans can expect the duo to perform old hits and new material in their maiden Australian tour, the likes of “Ndihambanawe, Love portion, Khona, “Meet Me At The River”to name just a few.
Mafikizolo was founded in the mid-nineties by Theo Kgosinkwe, Nhlanhla Nciza and Tebogo Madingoane. Originally a trio, the group were quickly recognised for their unique style (visually and musically) and signed their first record deal in 1996. Their self-titled debut album was released in 1996 with three more albums following in quick succession.
In 2000, the single Loot was remixed by international DJ and producer Louie Vega opening up doors for Western and European interest. The remix was so successful, that Mafikizolo took their first trip to perform on the international stage at the Miami Winter Music Conference. The band has since returned to perform across our borders and earned a huge following around the globe.
