RnB star Maxwell pays tribute to Madiba

Award winning Grammy RnB star Maxwell paid tribute to Mandela during his concert.

Award winning Grammy RnB star Maxwell left the audience in awe when he paid tribute to Nelson Mandela during his concert at the Coca Cola Dome last Saturday.

The show kicked off with Brenda Fassie’s song ‘My Black President’ which received a standing ovation from thousands of fans who came anticipating-and received- a world class show from Maxwell.

The singer song writer dedicated two of his performances to Madiba and had the audience on their feet with their fists in the air.

The RnB star got teary eyed when he dedicated the song ‘Help Somebody’ to Madiba.

While performing pictures of Madiba played out in the background. He was overcome by emotion and knelt down before Mandela’s picture.

He then performed songs like ‘Sumthin’ Sumthin’ and ‘Woman’s Work’, that left his female fans screaming.

The crowed could not stay on their seats during the concert, even the ones that were barred by security from standing.

He performed songs from his earlier albums such as ‘Till the cops come knocking’ and ‘Fortunate’.

“I know a lot of brothers did not want to come to the concert but when you get home you will have me to thank,” he said during his sultry serenade.

Maxwell later tweeted: “Johannesburg made a boy from Brooklyn cry tears with smiles of joy,”
