Bongeziwe Mabandla is set to reach an incredible milestone with his Imiini album release this Friday, 22 May 2020, when he’ll take on the Billboard virtual concert stage as a Spotlight Artist.
Billboard, the world’s most influential music media brand, presents a three-day showcase from 21 – 23 May 2020 of live performances spotlighting some of the most exciting and vibrant talent currently making noise in Africa and beyond, in partnership with Platoon.
Bongeziwe is set to perform today (Friday, 22 May 2020) at 8pm CAT.
“It’s an honour to be sharing a very special performance with Billboard. It reminded me of being back on stage and doing something I love again. I have chosen to perform songs that have resonated the most with people. Can’t wait for everyone to see what we created!” shares Bongeziwe Mabandla.
Bongeziwe’s ground-breaking Billboard news follows the news received earlier this week that his COLORS Home Bred performance was selected amongst the best globally.
Over the past eight years, Bongeziwe Mabandla has developed and perfected a sound as timeless as it is enchanting. His 2020 imiini release has seen immense praise not just from the media, and digital storefronts, but from the wider artists community worldwide with some notable praise from Florence Pugh, Mumford and Sam Smith.

Tomorrow I will be sharing a very special performance on @billboard. It is an honor and a dream as this is the music industry’s biggest publication, covering showbiz since the 1900’s. The songs were chosen by fans and my friends @justicemukheli, @soul_fire_sa and @thobekambane who helped with the making of this here in Johannesburg! Big thank you to my teams for making this happen @weareplatoon and @blackmajorsa
