Back for its 3rd annual concert, Magula Promotions is thrilled to announce this year’s Malibongwe – Tribute To Women Festival.

The line-up comprises a mix of the country’s biggest artists and fast-rising talent set to be the next leaders within the space. We also got some feedback from select artists on what they are celebrating this women’s month and more…

Simmy

Her distinctive style includes electronic dance music as well as neo-soul, neo-folk, and experimental pop; here is what she has to say;

Q: What does being a woman mean to you?
A: “Being a woman to me is being a God, being one who is not only blessed to give life but also given the ability to nurture it. As women, we are such a powerful force to be reckoned with.”

Q: What are you celebrating this women’s month?
A: “In light of celebrating women’s month this August, I think we can really celebrate the fact that we are taking up so much space as women in the country and the world as a whole. We are really pushing ourselves and reaching for the stars, getting into spaces that we were not expected to, where we were not even given a chance to get into in the past. I believe that there is so much leadership [among] women, there are deputy presidents, you know, there is everything that you can expect from a male figure.”

Q: What are you looking forward to at the Malibongwe Women festival?
A: “I’m really excited about seeing everyone outside again. The last time I performed the show was 2019, if I’m not mistaken, and I really just missed the ladies looking beautiful and seeing their happy faces because of being celebrated as women.”

Nomfundo Moh

She has been named as one of Apple Music’s Africa Rising emerging artists, let’s hear her thoughts;

Q: What does being a woman mean to you?
A: “To me being a woman means being the chosen one, to serve, to love, and to care for other people. “

Q: What are you celebrating this women’s month?
A: “This women’s month, some of the things we can celebrate as women is our victory. Women prospering in different aspects, some in the business sector, some in the music industry. We are fighting and making our mark, making our presence felt, and that is worth celebrating.”

Q: What are you looking forward to at the Malibongwe Women festival?
A: “I am looking forward to performing amongst the greatest women in the industry, people I’ve always looked up to, because I’m still new, and the people I’ve always looked up to, like Zonke, so it’s such a pleasure to share a stage with the queens.”

Other artists performing include Uncle Waffles, Zakes Bantwini, Sun-El Musician, Zonke, and Ami Faku.



“We chose this line-up because these performers represent the best of what South African music has to offer; a mix of today’s biggest names and tomorrow’s superstars, while simultaneously being diverse enough musically to cater for everyone in our audience”, says Chakela.

TikTok sensation; Paballo Kgware has been tasked with hosting the festivities. Paballo, also known as “The Rich Makoti”, is a graduate of TikTok’s Rising Stars programme, and boasts 1,3M following on the platform. She has leveraged her acting chops on social media to real roles on the silver screen. Kgware has also become the de facto voice for body positivity for her generation, advocating for better representation of plus size women and being a driving force in plus size fashion.
