  • The Nubian Festival Celebrating Women's Month will include acts like Sho Madjozi, Lady Zamar and Judith Sephuma.

Bonang Matheba has teamed up with the annual Nubian Music Festival to celebrate women through music. 

The Nubian Festival Celebrating Women's Month will showcase a diverse line-up of female acts, including Judith Sephuma, Lady Zamar, Sho Madjozi, Amanda Black and Aus Tebza.

Not only will Bonang host the star-studded event, but she has also taken on the role of co-producer. 

The festival will be streamed live from Sun City in the North-West Province on 29 August.

"I'm excited to be producing my first live-stream music event, especially from Sun City, in the province where I was born. This is an important month for women to be inspired to realise their dreams and this live-stream intends to do just that along with some of the country's and Africa's greatest female artists in their music fields," Bonang said in a statement to the press.

Nubian Music Festival founder, Mpho Mathope, added: "It is an honour to be able to live-stream this celebration of South African women and especially the amazing artists who present our music heritage to the world. We're also excited that we can bring the Nubian goal of promoting social togetherness & cultural tolerance to an even larger audience in the age of Covid-19."
