The Lion King's soundtrack also features droves of African talent. The tracks feature a host of African talent to showcase their talent to the world. Beyonce, who helped select which African acts got the honor, said that she wanted this soundtrack to be a "love letter to Africa". The album features hitmakers like Burna Boy, Yemi Alde, Mr Eazi and our very own Busiswa and Moonchild!
Now, The Lion King frenzy has reached South Africa. The animations movies from this company, which also owns Marvel, always seems to cause a frenzy! You feel the need to go watch it full regalia to show your full support to the release of the film. Plus, anything that involves Beyonce's name needs to be done right.
Last night was no different. Unfortunately, Queen Bey couldn't make it out to the African premiere in person but that doesn't mean everyone showed up in jeans. Our faves all came out to celebrate the release of the Lion King in Rosebank last night.
