“In response to public demand, SABC1 is pleased to bring back on air this historic musical event telling the story of the struggle for emancipation. And what a more fitting way to tell this unique Mzansi story than in music, song and dance,” says Vukile Madlala, the Channel’s Publicity Manager.”
The ANC’s 100 years celebration event was a live event that uniquely combined theatre, musical theatre, star musical performances and documentary material. All these elements were weaved together to tell the story of the struggle and to capture its historical significance.
