Durban, South Africa – 2015 marks the 10th year anniversary of Afro-soul songstress Simphiwe Dana’s first musical offering “Zandisile”. As part of this momentous occasion, Ms Dana has embarked on a 6-city tour across the country sharing her life experiences through music. Fans will be treated to a collection of musical pieces that speak to the life and times of this pivotal South African artist and her journey to “FIREBRAND”.

The FIREBRAND tour kicked off on the 25th of April 2015 to a sold out show at the Bassline in Johannesburg Newtown. The Bassline was a significant venue to start this tour as she launched her first ever album “Zandisile” at the Bassline 10 years ago.

The Durban show, 10 Years of Simphiwe Dana, presented by Ukhozi FM will take place on Sunday the 30th of August 2015 at the Playhouse Company at 18h30. Tickets are available at Computickets at R200 and R250 at the door. This particular show will a build-up to a massive 10th year celebration and DVD recording with a full orchestra to be held at Durban ICC in December 2015.

Through her book drive campaign, Dana will also be visiting Ohlange High School at Inanda to give motivational talks to matric pupils and deliver books. Friends of Simphiwe Dana have donated books that will be handed over to the school library on the day. “We are going on a fact-finding, solutions-driven mission to try and inspire a nation into action, from the individual up. If our children do not make reading part of their daily lives, then the future looks bleak. They must read, and it is what took me out of my own little space when I was a child.” – Simphiwe Dana

The school has been carefully identified and chosen because of its historical status and its alignment to the Simphiwe Dana brand. The initiative is a significant element to Dana’s visit to Durban as it seeks to promote the importance of reading as well as inspire students.
