Big Concerts confirmed on Monday that R&B/Soul singer Zonke will be supporting the iconic Lionel Richie.

Richie will be in South Africa for his tour in March 2016 performing ALL THE HITS ALL NIGHT LONG.

Multi-platinum award winning singer Zonke has carved out a distinctive position in the musical landscape. She’s one of South Africa’s biggest stars and not only performs but also writes and produces her own material. With three albums on major international labels under her belt she recently won two acclaimed SAMA awards for Best Live DVD and Best African Adult album. Her latest album Work of Heart has received three Metro FM nominations in the categories Best Female, Best RnB and Best African Pop album.

“I am looking forward to delighting audiences with all-time favourites and new soul hits off my latest album titled Work of Heart,” Dikana says in a statement. “And I am especially excited to be sharing the stage with Lionel Ritchie who I have admired for taking pride in his art. This is an opportunity for South Africans to experience a quality production.”

One of the world’s bestselling artists of all time, Lionel Richie has sold over 100 million albums worldwide. As a member of the Commodores, Lionel developed a ground-breaking style that defied genre categories, penning smashes such as Three Times A LadyStill, and Easy.
