This holiday season, Heart FM, Game and the non-profit organisation Newkidz on The Block will be writing a story of joy for underprivileged children of the Western Cape. In the lead up to Christmas the organisations will be collecting toys as part of the Game Toy Story campaign for children in need.

Heart FM

This year marks the 4th year Heart FM is involved with the campaign of which the aim is to collect approximately 6 000 toys  and distribute them to children at hospitals, orphanages, safe houses and other child protection institutions.   The majority of these facilities are government funded and struggle to make ends meet. The toys distributed are often a first for many of these children and play a crucial part in their development.

 

The recipients of the toys are vetted by Newkidz on the Block which helps in establishing loving homes for orphans, vulnerable and destitute children. Founder of Newkidz Hilda De Beer says there is nothing better than seeing what a difference a toy makes to a child. “To see the eyes of a child light up when they receive a new toy is a special moment. To see the whole face of a child, who doesn’t own anything new light up when they receive a new toy is priceless.”

 

You can make a difference by purchasing or placing a new toy in the Toy Story drop boxes in all *participating Game stores from 12 October 2015. Game Marketing and Customer Director Mark Tuner says the company is delighted to be part of the campaign for the 4th consecutive year. “The Toy Story campaign reminds us that we all have an all-important duty to play in ensuring the well-being of disadvantaged children.”

 

For the 2rd year running Heart FM DJ Tyrone Paulsen will be the Brand Ambassador for the campaign. Heart FM will create awareness  around campaign by broadcasting live from a number of GAME stores to drive listeners and store visitors to help make the wishes of children in need come true.

 

The Heart Top 40 with Paul Playdon will take place from 10:00 to 14:00 at the following stores:

  • Canal Walk – 31st October 2015
  • N1 City – 21 November 2015

A Cavalcade will make its way to the Red Cross Children’s hospital on the 17th of December 2015 which culminates in a Christmas party with Heart FM DJ’s and various fun activities for the children who find themselves in hospital during the holiday season.

Three-time GRAMMY Award nominated international R&B, soul and pop singer, actress and television personality Tamar Braxton joins fellow R&B sensations Maxwell and Raphael Saadiq on the line-up for the BET Experience Africa. The three R&B superstars will perform during the gala concert alongside two of Africa’s top artists, multi-instrumentalist Flavour and Bongo Flava star Diamond Platnumz at the BET Experience Africa, a spectacular global celebration of urban culture, music and lifestyle from entertainment channel BET (DStv channel 129).

The inaugural BET Experience Africa takes place at the Ticketpro Dome, Johannesburg on Saturday 12 December 2015.

A veteran performer who began singing backup vocals for her older sister, Toni, at the age of 12, Tamar Braxton was also a founding member of R&B group The Braxtons with Toni and their siblings Traci, Towanda and Trina. Fanning the flames of her musical vision was a backstage encounter with Whitney Houston when she was singing background vocals for her sister Toni. “Whitney said to me, ‘Your voice is amazing! You’re going to be a star,’” recalls Braxton.

From a backing singer to a leading recording artist, actress, talk show host and reality television personality, Tamar Braxton became a star.  She recently competed the twenty-first season of Dancing with the Stars and last month released the latest solo single “Catfish” along with the album Calling all Lovers. A further single, “Angels & Demons”, has just been released and this month The Braxtons, including Toni, Tamar, Traci, Trina and Townada, are releasing new material entitled Braxton Family Christmas.

 

Nigerian singer, actor and dancer Flavour N’abania or simply Flavour began his career as a drummer for a local church before going on to become one of Africa’s most sought after artists. After playing the drums professionally, Flavour moved on to play the keyboard and guitar.  This talented musician has received a host of Nigerian and African entertainment nominations and awards, including winning two African Muzik Magazine Awards, an MTV Africa Music Award (MAMA) in 2014 and – as part of The Headies – a Hip Hop World Award.

 

Nasibu Abdul Jumma better known as Diamond Platnumz (or simply Diamond), has been putting Tanzanian hip hop well and truly on the global music map for the last five years thanks to his energetic live performances and hit tracks such as “Number One”, “Kipofu” and “Bum Bum”.  The multi-award winning artist won the 2015 MTV MAMA Award for Best Live Act, and has been the recipient of 16 Tanzanian Music Awards.  Diamond was nominated as Best International Act: Africa at the 2014 BET Awards, and most recently won Best African Act at the 2015 MTV EMAs.
