Freshlyground to perform at FIFA Fan Fest™ on Saturday
Freshlyground, who recently collaborated with Shakira to record the official 2010 FIFA World Cup™ song Waka Waka, will be performing at the Cape Town FIFA Fan Fest™ at 18h00 on Saturday.
Freshlyground has also produced hit singles like Doo Bee Doo and I’d Like, and has been one of South Africa’s favourite acts for the past five years.
According to Wikipedia, the group formed in 2002 and feature members from South Africa, Zimbabwe and Mozambique. The vocals of Zolani Mahola give the band a very distinct sound.
The SAMA award winning afro-pop group have three albums under their belt and fans can expect to hear many old favourites in addition to newer hits off their recent album Ma’Cheri. The group is currently recording a fourth studio album due for release shortly.
Their second and third albums have achieved multi-platinum status and, in November 2006, they won the MTV Europe Award for Best African Act, placing the band on the international music map, and opening the door for them to tour the United States and Canada for the first time this year.
