*Attempts to get 'Bum Bum' outta my head before proceeding with this blog.*

Ok. Done.

If you’ve been living under a rock, Zakes Bantwini is a Durban-based music superstar who describes his sound as “sophisticated dance music”, and is also the owner of independent record label, Mayonie Productions.

On the 16th of June this year, Zakes Bantwini transformed the newly-built Soweto Theatre into an intimate concert experience for the recording of his first live concert DVD, Upfront with Zakes Bantwini, which was shot with an integrated 14-camera team, 13-piece band, dancers, string section, styled VJ’ing, and legendary guest artists. 

This November, Upfront with Zakes Bantwini will be released by Sony Music Entertainment Africa on DVD and will feature his most successful tracks to date off the current album ‘Love, Light, and Music’ and the first live performance of his latest single ‘Karolina’. 

“I wanted this to be more than just another live music DVD, but rather an opportunity for my fans to join the journey with me and understand what I went through in putting together this show. It’s me, it’s real and it’s raw – from rehearsals in Durban, to string recordings in Joburg, and the significance behind June 16th, I really want this DVD to inspire my fans to keep on dreaming,” commented Bantwini. 

The official release for the DVD is tomorrow! *Dances*
