Watch Sipho Mabuse on DSTV channel 150 for the last 2 Times as we celebrate.
His Sipho@70 CONCERT filmed at the Daisy Jones bar on 15 May 2022, thanks to funding support from Concerts SA.
At 70, Sipho is more vital than ever.
His music has featured in the December 2021 summer campaign for MTN.
He also made the cover, including a 16-page feature in the Jan/Feb issue GQ Magazine, and was awarded a GQ Lifetime Achievement Award the month before.
Why Sipho at 70? Well, Sipho turned 70 in November 2021, hence the Sipho at 70 tour, along with his sensational six-piece, The Hotband, consisting of :
Thembeka Khumalo (SAMA nominated) on vocals,
Siphiwe Kubheka on drums,
Urban Noblela on guitar,
David Mabaso on bass,
Lloyd “toto” Mbhele on keys
and the man of the moment, Sipho Mabuse on vocals and saxophone.
As former-president President Kgalema Motlanthe wrote on Sipho’s 70th birthday:
My brother Sipho, we have come a long way together, and through your 70 year-long pilgrimage to the highest echelons of social, cultural and artistic eminence, we remember the distinguished milestones of your life and honour this as a moment for all South Africans to consider your pioneering contribution to African music and a global movement of expression.
