Legends and Legacy Ball Africa Music Awards Yvonne Chaka Chaka

The 2024 Legends and Legacy Ball Africa Awards event is set to take place on 13 July, 2024, at the Sandton Convention Centre, Johannesburg. This year’s event, a tribute to celebrating musical artistry and democracy in South Africa, promises to be an extraordinary celebration of Africa’s rich cultural heritage.

Highlighting Africa’s vibrant culture, legendary artists Koffi Olomide and Héritier Watanabe have been added to the line-up. Their performances will add a unique dimension to the event, highlighting the diversity and richness of African music.

Esteemed Princess of Africa Yvonne Chaka Chaka is this year’s main honouree. The evening will feature a star-studded line-up, including Mafikizolo, DJ Zinhle, King Promise, Camidoh, and Princess MacDonald.

The artists will deliver performances, paying tribute to Africa’s rich musical legacy with renditions of Yvonne Chaka Chaka’s iconic music.

The Legends and Legacy Ball has been an annual event by Imajin Advertising Company, now known as Imajin & Fusion Global, since its launch in 2011. Its debut event honoured Ghana’s music legend, Daddy Lumba. Since then, it has honoured three more Ghanaian music legends: Amakye Dede (2012), A.B. Crentsil (2013), and Kojo Antwi (2015).


In alignment with the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA), Imajin & Fusion South Africa and Imajin & Fusion Global, known for their experiential music events, are committed to advancing regional integration and fostering economic and cultural development across the continent.

In the lead-up to the event and into the future, the event organisers aim to mentor youth within the music industry on ownership, acquisition of music, self-development, and guidance. There will also be business matchmaking opportunities designed to enhance the business development aspect for musicians and companies, celebrating cultural diversity in South Africa.
