Over 50 Performing artists sound the call for South Africa to come together!


South Africa (30 March 2020) – Some of the country’s most talented performing artists have come together under lockdown to perform Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrika to illustrate that while alone in self-isolation, we remain united as a country.

Stars from ProVerb to Corlea, Danny K to Zolani Mahola, Busiswa to Kurt Darren and Moonchild to Yvonne Chaka Chaka have lent their talents to the cause with a much bigger vision in mind – 1 000 South Africans performing the largest-ever virtual rendition of the national anthem for the #AnthemChallengeRSA – as the country faces the unprecedented challenge of tackling and defeating COVID-19.

Any South African can submit a video of themselves singing our national anthem in a performance that showcases the powerful spirit of our country, reflecting together on the anthem as a source of inspiration in this very complicated time. To submit a video, simply click on the link and follow the instructions for performance and uploading by midnight on Monday 6th April 2020.

Once the virtual choir is assembled, we hope that other countries will be challenged to follow suit in creating their own virtual national anthem choirs in a bid to unite the planet.

Submit your rendition of Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrika now and help demonstrate that the unity which has uplifted our country from darkness before – can, again, in the face of a global threat.
