English singer and songwriter Ed Sheeran is in the Mother City for his #DivideWorldTour with his last show on Thursday at the Cape Town Stadium.
On his arrival on Wednesday, he visited Cape Town's Langa township as part of the Nando's x Bridges for Music collaboration.
Nando’s has proudly collaborated with the non-profit organisation – Bridges for Music in a long-term partnership that will aid in discovering and nurturing creative talent in South Africa.
The event was the first in a series where global pop star Ed Sheeran and local darling Zolani Mahola from Freshlyground joined an intimate group of aspiring musicians.
Sheeran and Mahola joined 50 motivated artists at the Bridges Academy in Langa, Cape Town to workshop some of their lessons and insights learnt from their time in the industry.
“The main goal of this event was to work with a world-class artist and a local role model to bridge social gaps and bring inspiration to Langa.
