The coronavirus stopped all public gatherings from happening which put a lot of strain on performers. Not being able to perform live took a huge chunk of a lot of artist’s income away from them.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Maphorisa and many other artists are ready to get back on stage and are already announcing live performance dates. The show will go on, baba!
President Cyril Ramaphosa has announced that South Africa will be moving to alert Level 1 of the Covid-19 lockdown. Ramaphosa described this stage as the 'new normal' for as long as the nation is faced with the virus. This stage will come into effect on Sunday at midnight.
