‘Kelewele’ hitmaker and multiple award-winning Afro Soul Singer Sherifa Gunu put up one of the most amazing performances ever to be staged at the Accra International Conference Centre during this year’s South Africa Cultural Season musical concert on Friday,October 19.
South Africa’s cultural season is an annual event to promote regional integration and to support efforts towards the expansion of trade of Africa’s cultural goods and services through the Department of Arts and Culture in collaborations with the South African Embassy, and the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture.
This year’s cultural season, which was the first time South Africa has presented a programme, also marked the centenary of Nelson Mandela and Mama Albertina Sisulu.
The one week-long programme which commenced from October 15 to October 20 was celebrated through music, dance, fashion and design, exhibition, craft, mural and other cultural expressions.
The musical concert which climaxed the cultural season was headlined by South African group Makifizolo.
But the artiste who took the whole auditorium by storm with world-class performance is Sherifa Gunu.
Clad in amazing African apparel, at the time when the enthusiasm in the auditorium was down, Sherifa Guru who spent 30 minutes on stage, restarted the entire ceremony by getting everyone singing and dancing to her popular tunes like ‘Kriti Soya’,Biigno,and ‘Mama Africa’.
The most emotional part of Sherifa Gunu’s electrifying performance was when she took a break to pay tribute to late world icons;Nelson Mandela(Former President of South Africa) and Kofi Annan(Former UN Secretary General).
