Celebrated musician Thandiswa Mazwai has
announced the postponement of her women-only festival, Amandla Womxn Fest.
The muso cites the recent incidents that
have taken place in the country, such as xenophobia and femicide, as reasons for
her heart still not being “healed”.
She says she can’t do the concert when her
heart is not alright. “I for one have not healed my heart enough to be able to
carry yours at this time.”
Thandiswa says it’s no time to hold a
concert when the country is under a dark cloud.
But King Tha, as she refers to herself, did
not say when the festival will be held. But promised concert-goers, who had
already bought their tickets, a refund.
