MTV Base, channel 322 on DStv has been confirmed as the official TV partner for the upcoming SA tour by US R&B artist, Miguel.
Grammy Award winner, Miguel, dubbed by Rolling Stone magazine as “the world’s best kept secret” is booked to play two gigs in South Africa in March 2013: the Ellis Park Indoor Arena, Johannesburg, on Friday, 1 March and Cape Town Ostrich Ranch, Cape Town on Sunday, 3 March.
One of R&B’s most exciting and versatile stars, Miguel is part of a new breed of singers revitalising the R&B genre by meshing traditional R&B with elements of funk and rock. Inspired by the 1970s tradition of deeply personal, sonically adventurous soul music, Miguel is frequently compared to Marvin Gaye, Prince and Baby Face. A riveting live performer, Miguel combines onstage swagger with feline grace, mesmerising his audience with his vocal dexterity and tangible charisma, while his soulful voice soars and sweeps, adapting to every mood and style he attempts.
Supporting Miguel will be a montage of South Africa’s most electrifying performers including: songwriter, producer and choreographer Zakes Bantwini; BET Award nominated, SAMA award winning hip hop collective Teargas; SA R&B artist, Donald and 2012 SA Idols winner, Khaya Mthethwa.
