From Friday, 2 September to Saturday, 3 September, the Mandela @ Joburg Theatre will be abuzz with the musical sounds of South Africa’s hidden melodic talent.

I have always believed that our country is home to an amazing pool of talent and IGNITE is an extension of that belief.

We are creating a platform for undiscovered talent”, commented Lindelani Mkhize.

Whilst most of the featured talent has been identified by Mkhize, he has left a spot or two open for other hopefuls who will have to try their luck through an online platform.
