Lindi Roaming the Streets Celebrates Lebo Mathosa

Lebo Mathosa enthralled our nation with her chart-topping and internationally acclaimed Kwaito hits. One of Africa’s leading and most electrifying music performers, she was certainly gone too soon, but her legacy continues to move African music forward. 2016 marks 10 years since her passing.

In her memory, The Lebo Mathosa Foundation was launched July 28th at Hard Rock Cafe, Mandela Square. The founders, Lebo’s family and friends, introduced The Lebo Mathosa Foundation to the guests, explaining their vision to celebrate Lebo’s life, music, and inspiration.

The Mathosa family expressed how proud they were to celebrate Lebo’s lasting influence. Solly Mathosa, Chairman, shared their desire to motivate young people to be tenacious & bold in their pursuits. The Foundation is based in Daveyton, Gauteng, where Mathosa was raised from her teenage years.

An array of new talent currently pushing their way towards their dreams, entertained the guests & supporters of the Foundation, many incorporating a tribute to the queen legend. The depth and variation of the rising musical talent the Foundation aims to nurture, was showcased by guitar and vocal duo TOES, Hip Hop artists K9, GovenderzEmpire, SbuMathosa, Magzin, as well as solo artist Lynol. Hard Rock Cafe, Nelson Mandela Square, was a fitting venue with memorabilia displayed from various musical legends, giving some of these new artists a first taste of performing in an upmarket venue.

In October, a musical experience concert will take place to commemorate the day the nation mourned Lebo Mathosa’s loss. The Mathosa family and Showbizafrika (the creative agency supporting the Foundation) promise to celebrate “The Madonna of the Townships” in style.
