Gold Reef City’s Lyric Theatre will come to life this Saturday as musicians Dumza Maswana and Msaki grace the stage with their melodic sounds.

Fans will be treated to soulful sounds at the event dubbed “An Afropolitan Evening”. The two SA Music Awards nominees will come together for a musical showcase for the first time under the same roof, something scores of fans have been asking for over the years.

It seems it’s not just the fans who will be looking forward to the event, singer-songwriter Dumza is just as ecstatic about it.

“I use music to allow people into my space and also put my baritone voice in the spotlight. The year 2017 has been a great year for me musically and this show is an opportunity for me to thank my supporters for all the love they’ve shown me and to honour their request for a show with my home girl and sister Msaki,” he said.

The pair will perform with their respective bands whilst collaborating on a few songs. Well-known musicians such as Cici, Nia Pearl and the Port-Elizabeth-based duo Umle will be opening acts for the live musical experience.

“I’m very excited to be a part of this show. To share the same stage with Dumza Maswana and Msaki is an absolute privilege for me. For me, it’s never really just about singing, it’s about sharing my experience of life and talent with the rest of the world. It’s also going to be amazing for people to see the metamorphosis of the brand,” Cici told DRUM.
