The President led South Africa in Heritage Day celebrations in Northern Cape, and in his keynote address at Mxolisi Jacobs Stadium, he challenged young people to produce more music in African languages and gave a shout-out to Sho Madjozi and King Monada.

The theme for this year’s festivities was: “Celebrating South Africa’s literacy classics in the year of indigenous languages”, and the presidency spent a few days in the Northern Cape and prompted upcoming musicians from the province to bring on the heat.

Ramaphosa: “We want to download your music onto our phones”

“Music is one of the best ways to elevate indigenous languages. We want to download your music onto our phones and watch your music videos on MTV. I also want to issue a challenge to our musically gifted young people here in the Northern Cape: we want to hear from the Sho Madjozi’s and King Monada’
