Black Major artist, Bongeziwe Mabandla, is set to reach an incredible milestone with his imiini album release this Friday, 22 May 2020, when he’ll take on the Billboard virtual concert stage as a Spotlight Artist. Billboard, the world’s most influential music media brand, presents a three-day showcase (21 – 23 May 2020) of live performances spotlighting some of the most exciting and vibrant talent currently making noise in Africa and beyond in partnership with Platoon.
Bongeziwe’s ground-breaking Billboard news follows the news received earlier this week that his COLORS Home Bred performance was selected amongst the best globally. Over the past eight years, Bongeziwe Mabandla has developed and perfected a sound as timeless as it is enchanting. His 2020 imiini release has seen immense praise not just from the media, and digital storefronts, but from the wider artists community worldwide with some notable praise from Florence Pugh, Mumford and Sam Smith.
