Robin Thicke is heading to South Africa for his first-ever live performance and will be this year’s international star on the stage at ANN7’s South African of the Year Awards 2016 on 25 November. Last year the SATYs courted controversy when, after Christina Aguilera pulled out, American artist Jason Derulo performed and asked the audience who didn’t appear responsive enough to him “Y’all speak English, right?”
ANN7 says it plans to make this year’s SATYs, that will be broadcast on 25 November from 18:00, “bigger and better.” The awards ceremony will again hand out trophies to South Africans in categories ranging from best artists and conservationists, to sport, youth and business leaders, culminating in the award for South African of the Year.
Photos by Philippe McClelland & Jake Isham. Robin Thicke is playing host. He has uncorked a bottle of wine, ordered a pizza and salad, entertained his friend’s children – all while clad in a slim-fit tuxedo, bow tie unravelled around his neck, his pompadour set to a fault. Thicke’s Malibu home may have been the site of a busy photo shoot on a recent sunny Saturday, but that didn’t mean this couldn’t be a party. The music came on. Thicke’s adorable six-year-old son, Julian, swayed and smiled. Friends reclined on deep couches outside, overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
It didn’t matter that the schedule was packed, there wasn’t a frayed nerve in sight. “It’s all kind of become one enthusiastic joy,” Thicke says, when asked about his varied career threads; performing, songwriting, producing and acting. “I don’t have a master plan. I just follow my heart.” The 39-year-old Thicke embodies a raffish charisma that is almost a throwback to another era. He is astute and ambitious, but seems to have acquired the ability to hit the brakes, have a cigarette and let things unfold.
There is something new and innovative coming to New York City this May and it will feature some of the hottest artists including Robin Thicke, on May 7th at Kings Theatre in Brooklyn. The four-day music event is being called Grammy Park and will be hosted by The Recording Academy.
