STELLAR PERFORMANCES BY FRANCIS AND KINGDOM AT THE AFRICAN CLASSIC SHOW
When tasked to perform some of our favourite African classics in the first Live Show, Francis showed us that he is no stranger to delivering classic performances as he performed Lucky Dube’s ‘Remember Me’, from his 1989 album ‘Prisoner’, partly because his father loved the song, and also because he wanted to spare a thought for people who had to grow up without a father figure. Making the stage his jungle that Sunday, Kingdom serenaded us with his roaring performance of ‘The Lion Sleeps Tonight,’ a song originally written by Solomon Linda as “Mbube”
