Lifetime Achievement Awards - Pops Mohamed & Jonathan Butler

Pops Mohamed has a sheer gift for creating music that fuses generous measures of ancient cultures with delicate flavours of modern influences and expertise. This is partly why he has won so many awards - including two Lifetime Achievers Awards for his contribution to Indigenous Music - surely one of Africa's most celebrated musical legends.

Pops Mohamed and Friends will be performing live at the iStart2 Hub, 160 South Street, Lyttelton, Centurion on Saturday 8 September 2012 from 19h00.

Pops will be joined on stage by Olufemi. OLUFEMI is the new face of the African Renaissance. Combining Afrobeat and jazz, gospel and blues, West African highlife with a nostalgic Sophiatown flavour, his music is a rich blend of deep and sultry jazz and contemporary groove. His music is urban and urbane

The Sound Journey synthesizes a collaboration with JP du Toit sharing indigenous poetry and the soothing sounds of DJ, Chris Keys, playing funk, soul and afro tunes.
