THE MANHATTANS HEAD TO MZANSI
The Manhattans first touched down on South African soil in 1996 and nearly two decades later, the group is gearing up for their fourth performance in Mzansi. Speaking to eNCA in 2016, Gerald Alston said the group had sold more records in South Africa than in any other country.
“I remember from the very first time we performed here. The feeling, the spirit we got from the fans, it was unbelievable and still continues today,” said Alston.
