To celebrate his 50th birthday he introduced a spectacular production, Ignite, and invited us to film it.
Lindelani Mkhize is known as the father of entertainment through his involvement in Kwaito, jazz, afrosoul, afropop and more famously gospel, as the founder of Joyous Celebration.
IGNITE would be a two day production showcasing South Africa’s undiscovered and “little known” musical talent - across music genres. As a record label executive, Lindelani has signed countless talents to recording deals and as his wife Nhlanhlo Mkhize knows, this environment is his lifeblood.
A few spots on the show were won by unknown artists who entered on Facebook and Instagram. Giving established acts bigger stages and new faces a foot up, Lidelani is the difference in so many careers.
For the audience, it was a chance to be there when a star was born, or in this case, a constellation of new stars.
