Oliver Mtukudzi is a Zimbabwean living musical legend, human rights activists and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador - and we are honoured to be hosting him for a once-off Concert at the Artscape Theatre on Saturday, 18 November celebrating his 65th Birthday and 65 Albums to date.
Oliver Mtukudzi, a long standing
regular on South Africa & Zimbabwe airwaves, is one of the most globally recognised cultural icons from our continent since beginning his musical career back in the late 1970’s. With 65 albums under his belt, Oliver also has a doctorate from two universities and is a recipient of some of the most prestigious human rights awards, including The International Council for African Womanism Award (ICAW), recognising his role in the upliftment of African women through his artistic work.
Oliver is also the head and owner of an arts Academy called Pakare Paye Arts Centre that offers music and a diversity of art forms, platforming and building talent. Accompanying him on stage on the 18th will be musicians from the academy, including Fiona Gwena on Vocals and Hosho, Craig Chandamare on drums, Ashton Nyahora on guitar and vocals, Charles Njekesa on bass, Munya Vialy on Keyboard and Rodney Roda on guitar and vocals.
With his signature husky voice, he has earned a devoted following across Africa and beyond, and his performances in the South African territory are a rare and special treat for his fans, with over a year having passed since he last performed in Cape Town.
Having toured around the world several times, Oliver is no stranger to delivering top notch performances and this show promises to bring us his distinctive Tuku Music style up close and personal with artists he has groomed and personally hand-picked for the show.
