Tshwane was abuzz this past weekend as the last leg of the Christmas With Our People concerts took place in Moretele Park, Mamelodi.
With over 47 000 people in attendance, the concert proved a great success for the Motsepe Foundation. People gathered to be entertained by some of the county’s leading artists, including Ricky Rick, Mafikizolo and Babes Wodumo.

The Christmas With Our People concerts spread to 5 provinces over the course of 4 weeks. East London, where the concerts kicked off, received a staggering 67000 in concertgoers, while over 9000 attended in Polokwane, over 9000 in Mbombela and over 35 000 in Durban.
With the aim of uplifting communities during the festive season and provide a platform for emerging artists to connect with a wider audience, the Motsepe Foundation has seen the power of music to unite people in the spirit of Christmas. Every year, the concerts have become even more popular with a growing number of concertgoers and a wider offering of national artists.
