Maskandi music fans descend on Moses Mabhida Stadium – SABC News

Maskandi music lovers attending the Impucuzeko Maskandi Festival at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban say that music is a pillar of strength and brings them hope, especially in difficult times.

This is the ninth edition of the annual event, and it is the first since the outbreak of COVID-19.

Musicians, dressed in costumes dedicated to their favorite musicians, join the parade that starts at the Workshop Market and ends at the famous stadium.

Sandile Khumalo from Nquthu and Mbali “Diva wo-Saziziwe” Mdletshe say being with other players motivates them and keeps them focused on life. They say the youth will use music to benefit themselves and fight poverty and inequality.

Speaking on the significance of Maskandi to her, Mdletshe, who is in a wheelchair, said, “It reminds me of where I come from. I came here to inspire and motivate people, especially people with disabilities, to follow our culture no matter who they are.”

He added that people with disabilities follow their dreams and pursue their interests.

His colleague, Khumalo, said they have seen an increase in collaboration among Maskandi artistes which has promoted unity among musicians.

“Music is growing every day, and it makes us have different skills that are important in life,” he concluded.
