South African musicians bearing the brunt of xenophobic attacks

South African musicians bearing the brunt of xenophobic attacks

South African musicians are losing out because of the xenophobic attacks gripping the country.

First Kelly Khumalo's London tour had to be cancelled and Big Nuz and Cassper Nyovest are unsure about their performances in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.

Now jazz singer Wanda Baloyi's tour to Zambia has been called off.

Wanda was billed to perform in Zambia on 2 May but because of the xenophobic attacks in Mzansi, promoters and her management came to an agreement to cancel the show.

Mantwa Chinoamadi of T Musicman, the company that manages Wanda, confirmed the show has been called off.



"It really came out of the promoter. He was worried about how the people will receive a South African artist. And he was right, we're also concerned, so the right thing to do was to put it on hold and hope these attacks come to an end and people have time to heal," Mantwa said.

She said even though Wanda was looking forward to going to Zambia, she knows circumstances have forced the move.

"She's also worried about how she will be received that side. I believe if South Africans and the government had listened to each other, none of this would be happening.

"Nothing beats voicing your frustrations through the right channels and having the right people willing to listen.

"Killing and beating each other up will never solve problems. We look horrible to the world and this also puts in danger the lives of fellow South Africans in other African countries," Mantwa said.
