For those of us who grew up on the 90’s R&B sounds of Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds and Toni Braxton, their upcoming South Africa tour will be a trip down memory lane.
The legendary R&B superstars will perform in South Africa and Zimbabwe between 28 August and 3 September 2015 (see city tour dates below).
Braxton and Babyface will each perform classics from their impressive bodies of work for the first time on the African continent.
Respected worldwide for their chart-topping radio classics, both iconic singer/songwriters shaped the sound of R&B throughout the 90s as individual superstars and collaborators.
A hit-making machine with enviable longevity, 11-time Grammy Award-winning Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds has to his name no less than 130 Top 10 R&B and Pop hits, 43 number one R&B hits and 55 Top 10 pop hits.
Edmonds has received numerous awards, including Soul Train Music Awards, BMI Awards, NAACP Image Awards and American Music Awards. He was also the recipient of the third BET Walk of Fame Award, and was named BET’s “Entertainer of the Year” at the First Annual BET Awards Ceremony.
Over the course of her storied career, Braxton has earned seven Grammy Awards and sold over 66 million records worldwide. Among other achievements, she’s received nine Billboard Music Awards and seven American Music Awards, and has been inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame.
