Photos: Madiba Premiere

The Soweto Gospel Choir performed during the African premiere on the Discovery Channel 6-part miniseries Madiba on November 1, 2017.

The Choir performed several freedom songs during the event. Another fun fact is that the choir’s own Mazwe (looking good in the Canada Basketball tshirt from yours truly! lol) has a part in the movie, playing Madiba’s messenger.

The miniseries, which Laurence Fishbourne plays the title role; already aired in North America in February on BET in three parts. More info on the series available here.
