MANDOZA (article first published : 2005-08-22)

South Africa’s chart-topping singer Mandoza, will perform at Krakatoa at Sibaya Casino & Entertainment Kingdom in an East Coast Radio Explosive Concert on August 26 from 21h00.

Storm Squad, a popular Durban R ‘n B and Hip Hop band is the supporting act for the man who brought the world Nkalakatha.

It was this album that earned Mandoza a 2001 South African Music Award for Best Kwaito Music Album. The album’s title song was also named Song of the Year at the same awards event, in a category that’s entirely based on popular opinion. This, along with Mandoza’s scooping of five of the 10 categories at the 2001 Metro Music Awards - Best Kwaito Artist, Best Male Vocal, Best Album Nkalakatha, Best Styled Artist and Song Of The Year for his smash hit Nkalakatha – confirms his superstar status.

Mandoza is something of an icon who has a unique vocal style and delivery. “Most of my songs are about township life. It’s about what’s happening in there – the way people dress, the way we drink, the music we listen to, just the way we do things.”

Mandoza and Storm Squad appear at Krakatoa on August 26 from 21h00. Doors open at 20h30. Tickets R50 booked through the Box-Office on 031 580 5555.
