Every year, 18 July comes around, and we, as a nation, celebrate a great man’s birthday. This year though, our celebration will be with a heavy heart as our Tata is no longer with us, but even though he is no longer here, it does not mean that we should not celebrate his life.
MTN are celebrating the life of Tata Madiba with something that we are all familiar with, something that resonates with us and something that brings us together: music.
Music has always formed such a vital part in our lives through both the happiest and saddest of moments, and so this year, on 18 July, MTN will be hosting a Mandela Day concert with performances by Davido, Praiz, Mafikizolo, Oskido and Uhuru.
This honorary performance will be a first of its kind for MTN, and because we want the whole nation to be part of this celebration, you will all be able to stream it live, for free, on www.mtn.co.za. If you’re more of a YouTuber, you’re welcome to stream it via MTN’s YouTube channel. MTN’s 67 minute online celebration kicks off at 12PM this Friday, so make sure you bookmark the above URLs.
