The Amandla Womxn Fest was set to take place on September 21 at the Newtown Music Factory.

The singer asked her followers, “Where can we search, in our African knowledge systems, to find healing practices that can help us cope with the complexity of the human condition and experience?”

“#AmandlaWomxnFest began as a space of refuge and celebration but I feel we need more healing work. Something more intentional.Ma-Afrika sawunyangwa ngubani? I for one have not healed my heart enough to be able to carry yours at this time. Thank you for your continued support& love,” She said.

Thandiswa further informed the public that there will be a refund for those who have purchased the ticket.

There has been so much pain& violence, ilifu elimnyama, and despite having a great lineup with sistas I love and admire, I am not able to give this festival the mental space it needs right now. I don’t think we need a concert, but perhaps we need to think about the idea of a great healing for South Africa and the rest of the mama land as all manner of violence persists. Where can we search, in our African knowledge systems, to find healing practices that can help us cope with the complexity of the human condition and experience? #AmandlaWomxnFest began as a space of refuge and celebration but I feel we need more healing work. Something more intentional.Ma-Afrika sawunyangwa ngubani? I for one have not healed my heart enough to be able to carry yours at this time. Thank you for your continued support& love.
