This prestigious event is being held to honour and thank Botha for the phenomenal contribution he has made to promote South African music over the past thirty odd years and for his support and assistance to help local artists kick start their careers in the local industry, regardless of their creed or colour.
The event, which is appropriately named "A Good Friend of Mine", a title of one of his favourite songs, starts at 13:00 and will feature artists who at some or other stage, have been involved with Botha, either by playing with him, having shared the stage with him, had an album produced by him or have been mentored by the master.
Tickets are R100 and available from Computicket.- Get more detailed info and a Piet Botha biography here- Book tickets online through Computicket here
