SOUTH African star musician, Sibongile Khumalo, is set to perform tonight at the Sheraton Hotel, Kampala.

Accompanied by her full band, Khumalo will stage a single VIP show at 8:00pm, with revellers scheduled to part with sh120,000 for tickets which will be available at the entrance.

The show is sponsored by Flair Magazine, Vision Group’s monthly magazine designed to cater for the Ugandan corporate woman and supported by Sheraton Kampala Hotel, the South African High Commission, Nile Breweries and Prime General Supply Ltd.

Addressing the press yesterday, Khumalo promised to give Ugandans the best of her traditional South African music.

The singer looked so fired up for the show that she broke into song a couple of times at the press conference.

Khumalo is one of the leading lights of the South African music scene today, popularly referred to as her country’s ‘First Lady of Song’. She has over the last two decades established herself as an extra-ordinarily versatile South African singer, producing jazz, classical music, contemporary South African music, among others. To date, she has released six jazz albums, starting in 1994. All the albums have seen her perform across the world in addition to garnering her innumerable awards.

Among her awards are the Standard Bank Young Artist Accolade which she won in 1993 and the National Order of Ikhamanga-Silver (2008). Susan Nsibirwa, the Vision Group head of marketing, said the show is scheduled to be a theatre style and cocktail event.
