Gill to give SA fans a good time

THERE is a time when a certain generation of music lovers used to be crazy about a group called New Edition...

I was one of them at the time, and it is for this reason that I found myself somehow travelling back in time, a sentimental journey of those years when these guys were hot and happening.

I am talking about the 1980s.

Personally, my interest in their music faded over the years as they went their separate ways, or somehow did not perform together like they used to do.

That was then, and now one of their members is coming to South Africa to give his new fans and those that still remember the days of New Edition, a good time during this festive season.

Johnny Gill, the US love balladeer's performance on December 3 at Carnival City will mark the 16 Days of Activism campaign.

Most famous for his My, My, My hit, Gill will also perform in Cape Town the next day.

And in keeping with South Africa's skills-sharing ethos, Gill will share the stage with locals Nhlanhla Nciza, Malaika and the growing-in-stature Theo Kgosinkwe for the 10th Homecoming Music Concert.
