Two popular music groups from South Africa and Zimbabwe will this weekend tell the story of their journey to fame on the CNN African Voices Playmakers sponsored by total telecommunications solutions provider, Globacom.

Viewers will be entertained as the two groups, Mzansi Youth choir from South Africa and the Nobuntu, an acapella ensemble from Zimbabwe, recall their different  musical ventures in their respective countries.

The Mzansi Youth Choir, which was established in 2003, had set a goal of utilizing their song to spread happiness, love, and optimism across South Africa. The group tells African Voices that from humble beginnings in Soweto, “we began our journey and have captured the hearts of South Africans one performance at a time.”

The Nobuntu, a quintet of lyrical female vocalists, shot to international prominence with their upbeat and festive renditions of gospel, Afro jazz, and traditional Zimbabwean songs.

The show will air on DSTV Channel 401 on Saturday at 9.30 a.m. Reruns will air on Sunday at 4.30 a.m., 7.30 a.m., 12.30 p.m., and 7.30 p.m. There will be extra reruns starting at 4 a.m. on Monday and a 15-minute, two-part show on Tuesday and Wednesday at 6:45 p.m.
