No Blue Mingoli concert this year


The Blue Mingoli concert organised by Standard Bank will not take place this year.

Standard Bank has since confirmed the development, saying the Blue Mingoli concert, formerly known as Joy of Jazz will not be held this year.

The bank’s head of marketing, Thoko Unyolo, confirmed this in an email response.


“Yes, we will not hold Blue Mingoli this year,” Unyolo said.

On why it is not taking place, Unyolo said:

“We had to shelve some events (including the Blue Mingoli) to meet financial demands from change of the core banking system in 2017.”


She could not comment further on the issue.

While the Blue Mingoli concert will not be on song this year, Stanbic Bank in Zambia announced earlier this year that Grammy award-winning R&B group Boyz II Men, would be the main international headliner at this year’s Stanbic Music Festival.

Stanbic in Zambia seems to be serious with its festival as, last year, their festival was headlined by UB40.

Last year the Blue Mingoli concert, held in November, was headlined by South Africa’s singer Zonke.

Zonke, real name Zonke Dikana, shared the stage with Patience Namadingo.

Some of the international acts who have performed at the Blue Mingoli concert include South African artist Lira, who came face to face with Lulu, US Jazz maestro Earl Klugh and another South African artist Zahara.
