After touring Europe in support of his latest studio album ‘You Will Not Die’, Nakhane will finally be bringing his new tour to South Africa.

South African Music Award-winning Nakhane is currently based in the United Kingdom and he is very excited to finally showcase his work at home. The star will perform at three intimate and special shows in Durban, Cape Town and Johannesburg this November.

“I am really excited,” says Nakhane. “I was upset that besides the few festivals I played in 2018 in South Africa, I hadn’t really performed the You Will Not Die album at home. It looked like we had closed that book, but then my agent said ‘Not quite yet. Your home country hasn’t seen you perform these songs’.” As much as Nakhane has “basically had a world tour, we’ve played in every continent except Asia and travelling the world is incredible,” he is looking forward to stepping on stage here. “It’s home. These songs are about South Africa and South Africans are incredible audiences. They get involved in the show. They are present. You feel like you are collaborating with them on the spot. I love that about them.” As to what to expect from his performances? “Sweat and Feelings!”

2019 has certainly been a busy time for the multi-talented Nakhane, who is currently recording a new album. “I shot a film in Los Angeles called Two Eyes. It’s coming out next year and I am really excited about it. In terms of modelling and campaigns I’m in a Dr Marten’s worldwide campaign and a Gucci/ID Bloom fragrance one. I’ve written essays for Anotherman Magazine, Notion Magazine and New Frame and acted in John Cameron Mitchell’s Anthem: Homunculus podcast musical with Glenn Close, Cynthia Errivo and Patti Lupone. In 2020 Nakhane promises “There will be new music, there is going to be films and I’ve decided to start working on my second novel.”
