Donell Jones, the artist behind some of the great hits of the 90s such as “Shorty Got Her Eyes On Me”, “This Luv” and “U Know What’s Up” featuring the late Lisa “Left-Eye” Lopez of RnB band TLC, is headed to South Africa to dish out himself in all seven musical colours! He will be at the Sandton Convention Centre for One Intimate Night on 31 July 2015!

It’s almost hard to believe that the fresh-faced, dimple-cheeked RnB crooner has been around for a long time. His two-decade long career in the industry has cemented his position as a respected artist and he has continued to make quality music, staying true to his first love and passion.

Clubbed in the league of the likes of R. Kelly and Jodeci, the singer, songwriter and producer has achieved similar critical acclaim and has a signature style that old fans will appreciate in his new music.

Have a look at a few fast facts about his musical success:

• His second album got him recognised as a force to be reckoned when the chart-topping track ‘ U Know What’s Up’ won him an American Music Award for Best New R&B Artist.
• He has released five albums since his Where I Wanna Be album.
• He is the lyrical genius behind Usher’s debut single ‘Think Of You’ song and R&B group 702’s ‘Get It Together’, as well as penning for Silk and Madonna.
• He is the voice behind the Love & Basketball soundtrack “I’ll Go” and “Do What I Gotta Do” on the Shaft soundtrack.
• After taking a four-year hiatus from the business, he came back with his fourth studio album and chart-topper Journey Of A Gemini. It was like he had never left the scene.

The father of five and dedicated husband has no plans of to stop making hot music and keeping, not only his old fans, but also garnering a younger audience.

If you are looking for a serious throwback to the bygone music days, this is the perfect concert for you to attend! Make sure you don’t miss this one, it promises to be one of a kind!
