The show combined music and dance groups from every part of South Africa as the curtain raiser for the “Textile Tour” from African Heritage. It was renamed the African Renaissance Show and a song African Renaissance was especially penned and performed for the occasion.
As the organizers could not find a hotel facility large enough for nearly 4000 guests, they finally bought an old warehouse near Johannesburg (where incidentally Nelson Mandela had once worked as a watchman) and bulldozed out the interior. Stages, catwalks were set up according to African Heritage specifications and kitchens, a façade and parking lots were added all within three weeks! The facility is now the Crown Mines Entertainment Centre.
The show was performed for three nights on South African television although it was never shown in Kenya. The show was later produced for the Gala Night of the Century and Millennium Festival in Kenya in 1999-2000.
