Rosefest Durban… Are you ready?

In June this year we wrote up about the Rosefest announcement that multi-award winning artist Shekhinah dropped on us all.

The JHB show blasted off on 09 August 2019 and was such a huge success.

The Durban show is set for 12 October 2019 and Is celebration of the anniversary of the Rose Gold album.

Over the past few days, Shekhinah visited schools around Durban, her home town to pay homage. From the looks and sounds of things, she was warmly welcomed and energetically received. The Rose Fest is for everyone. You can legit bring your whole family.

Talks of candy-floss, food stalls, a live band and a fun fair are spreading through the airwaves and we are loving it. The only thing better than music at a fun fair, are selfies at the fun fair rocking rose gold tinted glasses!

Shekhinah’s aim is said to not only jive along to the music but to capture memories. And she’s creating a vibe for us to do just that. So grab your Coachella swag, get those tickets. And lets all be rosey!

Have ya heard? Rosefest 2019 is a thing!

During an interview that I did for SA Bloggers last year, Shekhinah mentioned that a Rose Gold Tour was one of the things she hoped to achieve. We’re super stoked to see that its happening and will not miss it for the world.

On 21 June 2019, the multi-award winning artist announced a tour that is produced by females and headlined by super amazing, talented females only. The Rosefest 2019 aims to celebrate the success of the Rose Gold platinum- selling album and aims to celebrate women.

Shekhinah says: ‘I want to create a festival-like experience that is driven by the theme of escapism and feel good music’.

Talks of candy-floss, food stalls, a live band and a fun fair are spreading through the airwaves and we are loving it. The only thing better than music at a fun fair, are selfies at the fun fair rocking rose gold tinted glasses!

Golden Black creates waves #BAM

With June amongst us, rest assured we’re going to come across some very inspirational reads on our news feeds. With it being Youth month and that generally meaning that youth doing great things are showcased and celebrated, I find this post fitting.

Just over two months ago Golden Black released their first project titled BAM (By Any Means). The 15-track album is a pure delight to listen to, whether it is in the car on your way to work, having a cleaning jam session or even if you’re set to paint the town red; it creates an all- round feel-good vibe.

My favourite tracks on the album are: Perfect service, Set it off, I need you and Prjkt wolf and my hubby’s (yes, he is an avid listener) is Cream. It was a shocker to see him select the album in the car for us to vibe to, because he hardly ever listens to local music. (hey, judge him, not me…I’m a local is lekker kinda girl #giggles).

We are not the only ones who are feeling the l.o.v.e for this album. To date the hip hop/ afro-trap trio has steady album sales and close to 50K online streams. SA’s hip hop sensation Nasty-C also showed love to the group when a video was uploaded showing him jamming along to the groups “set it off” track. Click here to check it out. Need we say more? Nah! But we want to, so read along.

The group announced that there will be music videos for each track on the album and mentioned a potential deluxe version of the album featuring Nasty-C in the pipeline. For a first –time project, the group is certainly making sure it creates just the kinda waves we like to ride 😎. To make sure you don’t miss out on the 411 and the group’s next move, be sure to follow them on the social media streets. Handles to be noted at the end of this post.

The group itself consists of three young, vibrant and extremely creative individuals: Anston Kling, Fxrgo and Slay. Their real names are: Lungelo Msomi, Thabiso Mngadi and Siyalonda Mtshali respectively. Started off almost a decade ago, the group has faced their fair share of trials, but they made sure that those trials only fueled them to be bigger and better and left no room for failure or negativity.

They bounce off each other’s creativity and vibe like a well-oiled machine. These boys know what they want and will stop at nothing to ensure they get it. They are dedicated personified and understand beautifully that what you put in is what you get out.

The group is no stranger to the industry though, they have worked along side some of SA’s icons, be it as Golden Black or as Saak Beats; the group but as producers. Yeap, they are the full package. They make beats, produce, write lyrics and alles. Speak about being the full package 😊. They have worked with La Bron, Nasty C, Jnr B, Junior De Rocka, Dj Rico, Reason and Tellermann, just to name a few. I told you, they’re no strangers 😉

We certainly look forward to more amazing projects from this talented trio and wish them nothing but love, light and success.

John legend – Meet and Greet. The Darkness and Light Tour 

Many times we perceive artists and their ability to do their crafts by how they are portrayed and captured by the media. By their interactions that are filmed. Whilst we can never fault their ability to do their craft, we often hear stories of how entitled some artists can be, once them and their crafts are accepted by the world.

This is not the case with John Legend. He is as humble as he is portrayed to be.

Yesterday, 07th November 2017, a day to remember. A group of friends and I won a competition which comprised a meet and greet with the legend himself and also tickets to his  darkness and Light concert here in Durban South Africa. 

Now I’d love to include every detail about the build – up and anticipation to THE moment, about how we obsessed over how we looked because we wanted it to be perfect, but I will spare you guys those boring details 🤣

All I am going to say is that he is as chilled as a cucumber, he has the most amazing smile, he is an absolutely amazing performer and the love he has for his daughter and his wife and then his music, is just absolutely admirable! 

Me with the legend himself

Now, if that weren’t super amazing, I also got to meet THE Shekhinah! Many of you who know me, know that I’m one of  Her biggest fans 😍🙈. 

Myself, Shekhinah and Amy
Myself and Shekhinah

I was honestly in awe at how normal and humble both these performers are. They really are just ordinary people doing extra ordinary things and I wish them nothing but the best in all their future endeavors.

But that still wasn’t the highlight of the night. The highlight of the night was that I got to spend the evening with these amazing girls. 

Amy, Laiyah and Myself
We sang, danced. Laughed, almost cried, got wet in the rain and loved it and even shoved our shoes off just to take the moment all in. The #carTALs. And after it all, I cooled off at Cuba and McDonald’s with this Chika and her amazing hubby.

Desiree and I

It was definitely one of THE best nights of my entire being. 
A huge thank you to Big concerts and East coast radio for arranging the meet and greet. A huger thank you to everyone that helped us win , the votes, shares and support has been nothing short of amazing. And the hugest thank you to Amy and Laiyah for the memories of both making our carpool karaoke videos and lastnight, for always keeping it 100 and for the support through-out the years. 

You can visit my Facebook page here to check out more videos building up to the meet and greet and concert, live feeds and more pictures.

The #carTALs: our carpool karaoke take! 

So a couple of weeks ago, our company launched a platform for us to share our carpool karaoke videos. A fun initiative to get into the year-end groove. 

Two of my very good friends and I decided to participate and boy did we have fun.
