The line-up includes the likes of Goldfish, Boity, Musa Keys, K.O, Nomcebo Zikode, Goodluck, Jeremy Loops, and Sun-El Musician.

"When we first came up with the idea for Abantu, the idea was to do something special for the people," said Bantwini.

"It took us some time to get it right but I think we finally have a well-rounded event property that everyone can look forward to."

"We have an incredible local and international line-up that I believe will bring a unique flavour to a local concert that's unlike any we've seen before. This is just the beginning and I can’t wait for everyone to see what we have in store for this historic show."

Bantwini' recently joined forces with Arena Holdings' music division, which is known as The Music Arena, to launch a new company, Aline Agency.

Over the weekend, Bantwini held university activations in support of the upcoming concert at the University of Cape Town and Stellenbosch University. Next up, he’ll be headed to University of KwaZulu Natal and Rhodes University.
