2015 Mandela Day – get involved!

48764Cameroon’s Wax Dey has joined Nigeria’s Banky W and South Africa’s Cassper for this tribute

Six African stars have united to pay tribute in song to Nelson Mandela, ahead of International Mandela Day on Saturday 18 July.

‘Viva Mandela, Tata Madiba’ is performed by Runtown (Nigeria), Wax Dey (Cameroon), Cassper Nyovest (South Africa), Simphiwe Dana (South Africa), Banky W (Nigeria), and Shaydee (Nigeria). It is produced by O’magic (Angola).

The song is currently available on MTN Music Plus and MTN caller-tune downloads in South Africa, but the official release is set for Saturday 18 July on iTunes worldwide, and all MTN platforms across Africa. Part of the proceeds will go to the Nelson Mandela Foundation’s charity of choice.

The artists will unite for an exclusive performance in Johannesburg  on Friday 17th, during a Mandela tribute concert that will be streamed live on MTN Music Plus, from 11am-4pm SAST (10am-3pm CAT).
