On Friday night the SAMA’s announced the Amstel SAMA Lifetime Achievement Awards at the smaller Industry event.
I will blog about the Friday night in a later post, but I just wanted to mention what an honour it was to meet one of the Lifetime achievement winners, Dr. Thomas Chauke.
The amazing Dr Thomas Chauke shared the award with Sizwe Zako and the late Johannes Kerkorrel.
This award was the highlight of the evening with a tribute to Johannes Kerkorrel by Elvis Blue supported by the Mzansi Youth Choir. They performed Kerkorrel’s hit song, “Hillbrow” which made me feel so emotional. This was followed by breathtaking live performances from Sizwe Zako and Dr. Thomas Chauke that had the whole audience out of their seats, applauding for these South African legends.
