It’s the second phase of lockdown but some of our favorite artists are still keeping us entertained.

Global Citizen has partnered up with artists across the world to stream concerts, filmed in the artist’s homes, on their Instagram page.  

Themed ‘Together at Home’ the series has so far featured major names such as John Legend, One Republic, Chris Martin, Ziggy Marley, Common and Miguel. You can check out these full-length performances on Global Citizen’s Instagram TV page.

Africa’s biggest DJ Black Coffee has been hitting the decks every Saturday night at home with the Home Brewed live streaming party.  

The weekly party is also a fundraiser for the South African Solidarity Fund and partygoers are asked to donate what they would ordinarily be paying to see the DJ live to his Go Fund Me Covid-19 relief page. 

Join the party every Saturday live on Facebook from 21:00. 

Hosted by DJs pH and Shimza the Lockdown House Party is hosted on Channel O (DStv Channel 320) in partnership with Hunter’s Cider.
