KZN FLOOD BENEFIT THE “ARISE BENEFIT CONCERT”
Music is a universal language that can echo and create unity when people come together for a greater cause.
The Arise Benefit Concert will see over 50 artists perform across two stages at Moses Mabhida Stadium and The Peoples Park in Durban, KZN in a collective effort to raise funds for the communities affected by floods in KwaZulu-Natal and parts of the Eastern Cape.
It is set to take place on Saturday, 18 June 2022 with a line-up comprising of some of South Africa’s biggest multi-award and double platinum selling artists, including developing artists from the region, who have decided to join efforts with industry and donate their time and talent in the effort to raise R10 million for the benefit of the flood affected communities.
When Sipho was approached by the organizers, comprising of the NAC, CAPASSO, SAMRO, SAMPRA, RISA, SABC, CCIFSA KZN, Gearhouse, Mushroom Productions and Doo More Foundation, it was a no-brainer for him to raise his hand as a show of support and solidarity for the flood affected communities.
A successful nation and sector is defined by being able to unite in times of need.”
