South African house sensation Zakes Bantwini (@ZakesBantwiniSA) and Nigerian high life guru Flavour (@2niteFlavour) are to join the “all star” line-up at MTV Africa All Stars – KwaZulu-Natal, the sensational open-air concert brought to you by MTV Base (DStv Channel 322) and KZN Province.

 

Bantwini and Flavour will join US entertainment icon and multi-platinum hip hop star turned reggae artist Snoop Lion (@SnoopLion) aka Snoop Dogg, at the 5-hour open air concert at the stunning Moses Mabhida Stadium, People’s Park Durban on 18 May.

 

Zakes Bantwini is without a doubt South Africa’s most prolific live performer: there is not a single stage in South Africa that this music mogul and leading light on the SA music scene has not killed! His songs Wasting My Time, Bum Bum and most recently Karolina have been burning up airwaves across the continent and have all been remixed by some of the biggest names in house.

 

Zakes is also one of the choirmasters in the running for top honours and a cash prize in Mzansi Magic’s hit show, Clash of the Choirs. Viewers can now vote for their favourite choir by SMSing the name of the team – Team Zakes, Team Khaya or Team Zwai – to 33405. The winner will be announced at the finale on Sunday, 21 April at 17:30 on Mzansi Magic.

 

Joining Zakes at the MTV Africa All Stars will be high-life artist Flavour N’abania, aka Chinedu Okoli. After his continental smash hit Nwa Baby Remix and his massively successful collaborations with Tiwa Savage and Fally Ipupa, Flavour continues to be Africa’s most requested artist, regularly collecting frequent flyer miles whilst jetting across the continent and as far afield as USA and Europe. He’s also become a regular fixture in Dubai and the Far East.

 

Speaking on behalf of MTV Base, Alex Okosi, Senior Vice President & Managing Director, Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) Africa, commented, “We are delighted to welcome two such popular artists as Zakes Bantwini and Flavour to Durban’s shores for MTV Africa All Stars – KwaZulu-Natal. With Snoop Lion already confirmed, all eyes are going to be focused on KwaZulu-Natal as we put our hearts and souls into making this the music event of the year!”

 

MTV Africa All Stars – KwaZulu-Natal will air on MTV Base (DStv Channel 322) and partner TV stations in Africa from Saturday, 25 May 2013 (Africa Day).

 

More details of MTV Africa All Stars – KwaZulu-Natal, including additional performers and ticket prices and outlets will be announced shortly.

 

Gagasi FM is the official radio partner of MTV Africa All Stars KwaZulu-Natal.

Voice of modern reason and power

Posted by radio On April - 18 - 2013 ADD COMMENTS

[By: Kagiso Mnisi]

 

Acclaimed academic Nicholas Nassim Taleb, uses a metaphor that describes an event that is a surprise (to the observer) and has a major effect in his book, The Black Swan. This rationale is easily pinned to the wall in the advent of Power FM. The station which is in the throes of launching as the nation’s first black owned talk radio station, is pioneered by MSG Afrika Investment Holdings chief executive, Given Mkhari. The over stretch of media rhetoric has not fallen short of calling the 39 year old a barrage of titles from mogul to magnate, which comes as warranted if his resume is  anything to ram the table about.

 

Speculations ran amock when Eusebius McKaiser announced his resignation from Primedia’s 702 and succeeded it with a hint that he might be joining Mkhari’s team. As a widely featured political analyst, bestselling author and an admirably entertaining commentator; the knee jerk to most has been that Power FM’s brand will be of a ‘no favour’ make. Closely kept to chest, the station’s cards hold a royal flush of also having Lupi Ngcayisa on board.

 

Mkhari’s exponential leap has been the stuff of lores, his salad days fundamentally started at Turf radio which was launched by him and lifetime business partner Simphiwe Mdlalose. His rise not showing any sign of being capped, Mkhari the won a bursary to study at Bard University in the US under the mentorship of the late Chinua Achebe. The local radio space has heard him at Kaya FM, Metro FM to eventually giving Limpopo a bolster with the launch of the commercial Capricorn FM.

 

Power FM’s is tipped to be progressive and unapologetic about holding leaders accountable – be they in government, civil society, the workplace or the home. Its focus on contemporary issues facing black 25-49 year old urban South Africans who are political, frank and able to have fun; is waited upon with bated breath from punters all around. Will there be enough power to critique the black experience? All eyes and ears are stark focused whether this black swan will take an enduring flight.

Field day for industry at MTN Radio Awards

Posted by radio On April - 15 - 2013 ADD COMMENTS

[By: Kagiso Mnisi]

 

The MTN Radio Awards held at the Sandton convention Centre on the 13th March had all the expected pomp with a flurry of industry players and celebrities in attendance. In its fourth year running, Rich Mkhondo, Executive: Corporate Affairs at MTN Group, gave word that  “MTN’s reason for coming on board for the fourth consecutive year as title sponsor of the Radio Awards is because the importance of the medium is clear”. Mkhondo also said, “radio allows us to learn what is going on around us and keeps the nation informed – and MTN sees the importance of supporting its growth.”

 

The bragging rights to commercial station of the year were awarded to Kaya FM. The category was hotly contested with other nominees including 5FM, 567 Cape Talk, East Coast Radio and Talk Radio 702 coming to the party. The Kaya FM stable also clinched “Best Breakfast Show” for 180 with Bob, “Best Night Time Show” hosted by Mapaseka Mokwele and the meaty “Best News and Actuality” by John Perlman.

Kaya FM Crew celebrating the award

 

A heartfelt and rapturous reception was shown by the crowd when it was announced that Barney Simon had scooped the accolade for “Best Daytime Presenter” on Jacaranda FM. Indicative of homage paid to the seasoned Simon, his acceptance of the award evoked the rockstardom he has imbued over the years. Tuks FM proved its mettle as winner in the categories of “Campus Station of the Year”, “Best Breakfast Presenter” (Rob Forbes), “Best Daytime Presenter” (Alex Caige) and “Best News Bulletin Reader” (Anton Meijer). The campus radio station lived up to position as a hotbed of rising talent, more so it proved itself a strong contender in the industry, one that can take on giants as well.

 

Ukhozi FM reared its head as station of the year under the PBS banner, however its domineering stature as clincher to most awards (as seen in the past), was toned down signaling the level of fierceness from other stations. The hostess to the awards, Anele Mdoda, kept the ceremony livened up with her signature comical jabs. She at some point made reference to SABC’s non existing clarity on leadership which sparked both applause and uncontained laughter. While riding the wave, Mdoda also put Given Mkhari under the spotlight in regards to the soon-to-air Power FM. Steadfast and forthright, Mkhari did not hesitate to take up the gauntlet is saying that the station “will be a hard hitter and formidable rival to those already in the game”.

 

 

 

This is what some industry heads had to say about the awards:

5 Years; 5 Towns; 5 Celebrations!

Posted by radio On April - 2 - 2013 ADD COMMENTS

[Issued by: Trufm]

 

TruFM is celebrating its fifth year of existence on 2 April 2013. Like any other 5 year old they plan to be loud and proud about this exciting time. “Trufm is turning five and there are a number of reasons that call for serious celebrations. The station has increased its listener base from 246 000 to 299 000. The team at the station has worked hard to make sure that when the station celebrates its fifth birthday, we also celebrate the growth in listenership. The 2nd of April is a very important date for the station and we invite you to join the celebration and make sure that you listen for great giveaways.” said Thobeka Buswana, trufm Station Manager.

 

The station is running a trufan competition where listeners are requested to send their photos doing something with or for the station which proves that they truly are a fan of trufm, a trufan. Five fans will be called live on-air throughout the day on Tuesday 2 April and awarded with prizes for their undying loyalty towards the station. The five fans will also be VIP guests at the station celebrations.

 

The five celebrations will be a combination of three outside broadcasts and two events. The three OBs will be in Emazizini (12th) Mdantsane (13th) and Phumlani (26th). The broadcasts will be an opportunity for the station to give back to the communities that have supported trufm through this five year journey. Five families in need will be identified through an on-air campaign and awarded with grocery vouchers. The trufm broadcast area is fairly rural with listener needs ranging from education to jobs as well as basic home necessities. Groceries were identified as a way that the station can assist with this campaign.

 

The two events will be held in Queenstown (20th) and King Williams Town (27th). The station will have a Queenstown takeover where trufm will be seen broadcasting at different venues from the 18th as a build up to the main event which will be at the Indoor Sports Centre on the 20th. On the 27th the station will conclude its birthday month with an event at King Williams Town’s Botanical Gardens. Local artists are encouraged to contact Busi Mbatsha at the station for an opportunity to showcase their talent at both the Queenstown and King Williams Town events on 20 and 27 April respectively. The two days promise to be fun filled with many performances; prizes and interactions with the station’s presenters that the listeners love so much.

 

“It is very important for the station to go out and interact with the listeners we speak to on a daily basis and value so much. We want to share this exciting time with the people who make us who we are as a station. The station truly is nothing without its listeners.” Commented Sbongi Ngcobo, the Marketing Manager of Trufm.
The station encourages everyone to come out and have fun as we celebrate 5 years of broadcasting like no one else.

 
Keep it locked to 89.9 – 104.1fm for more details.

Zandile Nzalo talks radio

Posted by radio On April - 2 - 2013 ADD COMMENTS

[By Kgomotso Moncho]

 

The name Zandile Nzalo may conjure up different descriptions from different people.  Although, the common thread may be the respect she commands in her stride. Those who’ve been in her presence will recognise the grace and poise with which she conducts herself.

 

This grace and poise seems to flow over into her fierce business acumen in the communications sector. But many will know and remember Zandile Nzalo for being part of the Radio Bop (Bophuthatswana) generation of broadcasters who may well have laid the foundation for the young black talent we now see across the English broadcasting landscape.

 

She is in there with the likes of Nothemba Madumo and Kgomotso Moeketsi and she is also included in the judging panel of the MTN Radio Awards.   With over 20 years experience in the media, Nzalo has worked as a producer and presenter for numerous broadcasters including SABC Radio and TV, Radio Bop, Bop TV, 702 Talk Radio and MNet.

 

She is currently the founder and managing director of Zanenza Communications, a business she established in August 2002. The company specializes in strategy development, public relations, event management and radio and television production.

 

Her business portfolio includes her having been General Manager of the MNet’s Channel O; Media director for LoveLife; CEO for the Association for Communications and Advertising and Acting CEO at the Indalo Yethu Trust.

 

She serves on a number of boards including the Council of the University of Johannesburg; the Gauteng Film Commission and Bokamoso Investment Trust. This is the third year she is judging in the MTN Radio Awards. And she sees this as an opportunity to gauge how radio is growing in this country.

 

“The MTN Radio Awards play an important role as they encourage new talent and help in the development of new talent. You can only get better when you’re recognised for what you do. Similarly this leads to the growth of the industry as advertisers see and recognise the power of radio and its wider reach,” says Nzalo.

In her observations of radio broadcasting, she feels a lot is not being done to give broadcasters extensive training. She speaks in her capacity as a product of Radio Bop, which was the training ground for many of the veteran black broadcasters in English led stations now.

“I remember I was given six to eight weeks of technical training alone, this before we got to on air training. That is how serious Radio Bop was about skilling their presenters. It’s a travesty these days that young people are not given the same kind of training. It is up to radio station managers to cultivate talent and an all rounded broadcaster, one who can conduct an interview intelligently and apply their mind,” she says.

 

Her experience allows her to practice her freedom of choice. She is able to decide in two minutes whether she’s taken in by a presenter or not, and she can switch to another station if she feels. The fact that she has these choices is what she loves about radio in South Africa. It is broad and diverse. She appreciates new talent and rates Siki Mgabadeli as one of the broadcasters she enjoys.

 

Although the MTN Radio Awards adjudicating process works with specialized criteria, Nzalo also gets to use her personal discretion. “Content is very important, as well as how a show is prepared. I have judged on current affairs and talk radio and here research is key. A broadcaster should be able to represent society’s views. A good music show should also have an interesting interaction with the listener. It needs preparation, relevance and societal content,” she says.

These below are the categories that Zandile Nzalo is responsible for in the MTN Radio Awards:

Breakfast Show – Commercial

Breakfast Show – PBS

Breakfast Show Presenter – Commercial

Breakfast Show Presenter – PBS

Business and Finance Show – None

Community Presenter – Community
