‘Legends Never Die’ is a concert series that pays tribute to departed South African heroes who have left an indelible mark on the very fibre of the nation. The series launches with the #IAmWinnieMandela musical tribute show– a creatively crafted production in honour of anti-apartheid stalwart, activist and mother of the nation, Mama Winnie Madikizela-Mandela. Even after South Africa gained freedom in 1994, Winnie was a necessary force and disruptor; a voice for the voiceless and underprivileged till the very end. Icon for social justice, equality and African pride, Winnie remains an enigmatic figure in South African society, that has influenced contemporary culture. 

As part of the concert, there’s a sanitary pad collection drive that is meant to give relief to young women who are in need across Gauteng and the country. AR Agency has partnered with The Market Theatre and the City Of Johannesburg for the sanitary pad collection drive. Members of the public are encouraged to donate sanitary pads and drop them off at the following collection points; Sakhumzi, Zoo Lake and the James & Ethel Grey Park.

Executive Produced by Gandhi Baai, and Associate Producers Siphelele Madikizela ‘Legends Never Die’ is a creative platform that not only remembers iconic historic figures, but also positions their legacy as an important part of the future development of Mzansi. 

With video production by UK South African based film maker, Nicholas Beveney and Associate Producer and TV Director, Mmuso Sefatsa, ‘Legends Never Die’ promises to be an unforgettable and emotionally engaging but entertaining celebration of Mama Winnie Mandela.
