Creatively singer/songwriter Zakes Bantwini is at one of the best places of his life. The Grammy-award-winning South African musician is currently working on new music and had beloved South African songstress Zonke Dikana in the studio with him (They were at the lost palace in Sun City).
“Life’s good and I’m feeling amazing,” said Zakes.
“In Studio mode at The Palace, making music with true artists is effortless, and therapeutic. Working on my last album and I couldn’t be happier, thank you!”
Off the back of his Best Global Music Performance nod at the 65th edition of the Grammy Awards; Zakes Bantwini joined forces with Glenmorangie for the next installment of the Glenmorangie Experience.
The alcohol brand hosted its third event at Konka Day Club in Soweto on Sunday 19 March 2023 where Bantwini will perform alongside a stellar line-up of local acts. The experience is a multi-sensory event, with the fusion of visuals, sound, and delicious drinks.
Thousands of attendees gathered at the country’s trendiest lifestyle spots last year and this coming edition promises to transform Soweto into a wonderland of experiences. “I am proud and excited to continue working on these groundbreaking events with Glenmorangie,” Bantwini says. “If you haven’t been to the Glenmorangie Experience, I encourage you to come on down and enjoy a night you won’t forget”.
“Zakes has always broken boundaries so it was no surprise when his name was called on the music industry’s biggest stage,” says Josh Piketh, Brand Manager for Glenmorangie in South Africa. “We’re excited to partner with him once again through this unique experience, as he continues his mission to use music to bring people together.”
