In honour of the Centenary celebrations of South African Political Legend, Nelson Mandela, DJ Maphorisa with the support of his Blaqboy Music Empire launched a brand new track which he titled, “Dance like Mandela”.
The record featured an amazing rollout of verifiable hit makers in the music industry Mlindo The Vocalist, Moonchild Sanelly, Stilo Magolide and Sbucardo Da DJ who came together on this track to celebrate one of the greatest freedom fighters Africa if not the rest of the world has ever seen.
About the “Dance like Mandela” song which was set loose on the internet for free download in order to allow fans join the celebration groove, DJ Maphorisa released a statement, which read,
“Today marks the 100th birthday of Nelson Mandela, one of the most important political activists of our time and a symbol of peaceful resistance on behalf of human rights.
To celebrate his birthday I teamed up with REPRESENT on #DANCELIKEMANDELA – a campaign that wants to inspire young people all over the world to become a catalyst for social change through music and dance.
The track is a tribute to Nelson Mandela who was not only a lawyer, an activist, a president, and a Nobel Prize winner, but also a dancer. He was famous for getting up in any setting, whether on the political campaign trail, at the UN, or at a party, with his iconic Madiba Shuffle.”
Arguably, dancing definitely has to be one of the best way to celebrate a man who once famously said, “It is music and dancing that make me at peace with the world”.
To get involved this hot new trend, simply upload a video of yourself dancing to the track using the hashtag #DANCELIKEMANDELA, telling the world also why you are dancing like Mandela or visit www.represent.global for more info.
So stream, download, “Dance like Mandela” right here and we of course will also be glad to know why you dance like Mandela.
