Throughout Women’s Month (August) Newtown Junction, a mall that offers a superior shopping experience, diversity in dining opportunities and a space that lends itself to celebrating South Africa’s artistic and cultural diversity, is setting the tone by hosting inspiring events and showcases.

 

A series of lunch – time concerts  (13h00 to 14h00) on Fridays (August 7, 14 and 21) supported by the Gauteng Department of Sport, Arts, Culture and Recreation will give a taste of the upcoming Moretele Park Tribute Concert.

 

So, get in on the act and catch the magic of Moretele Park Tribute Concert at the lunch-time concerts.

 

First up on Friday, August 7 is Cinderella and Ladysmith Allen Home – Cinderella, aka CSD, birthed from the prolific streets of ‘eNdofaya’, and is made up of band members, Clifford Mbhalati, Simon Modjadji and Desmond Hlongwane. This trio – a force to be reckoned with – breathes new life into the African Hip Hop market.

 

On August 14 we see a double bill of Mxolisi Ndongeni and MicCarol – Ndongeni, who in his early days participated in the Coca-Cola Pop Stars 2003, signed up with Demor Music and released an Afro Soul album titled Ngaphakathi (2011) which got playlisted by Kaya FM and various SABC radio stations going on to form his own label, Skyrocket Productions (Pty) Ltd in 2013. He is currently working with MicCarol whose real name is Lerato Thosane, a neo-soul, rnb and house music artist who is a model, university graduate, VUT FM radio host and draws inspiration from Erykah Badu, Jill Scott and Mary J Blige.

 

The final concert on Friday August 21 will feature Nathi, whose hit song ‘Nomvula’ is currently making waves in the local music front. Nathi, who came from Maclear to Johannesburg to record Noma Kanjani – a rendition of the late Brenda Fassie’s hit song with Vusi Nova, which within the first week of its release reached the top 10 on various radio stations charts, is a well “put-together”artist in full command of his craft.  In identifying his music he credits four magic letters which, he says best describes his music – L O V E! His latest release Buyelekhaya is available now in stores.

 

The main Moretele Park concert has a stellar artist line-up that spans the continent from the DRC to Lesotho, Zimbabwe and South Africa. Join the thousands of revellers at the Moretele Park Tribute Concert in Mamelodi – book your tickets at Computicket before they sell out.

Four of South Africa’s trailblazers, thought-leaders and trendsetters shared key insights with more than 700 women at Durban’s ICC this morning as part of Women’s Month celebrations. The FNB Business Women’s Breakfast in association with GIBS and East Coast Radio provided corporate Durban with a morning of inspirational personal journeys and shared learnings.

ecr3

Hosted by East Coast Radio’s Carol Ofori, the event was more than a networking breakfast to celebrate the phenomenal strides women have made in SA. It was about earnest advice from individuals who dare to dream, break moulds and set trends.

 

“As women, we all need to believe unconditionally that our passion can create the life we really want,” says East Coast Radio’s General Manager, Boni Mchunu. “We have the in-built ability to do whatever we put our minds to and need not wait for things to fall into our laps. Opportunities exist and we need to seize those opportunities and make things happen for ourselves, rather than waiting for society’s approval.

IT innovator, former Google SA boss, Stafford Masie, kicked off the morning. As one of SA’s celebrated digital strategists, Stafford shared advice on how to navigate the challenging – and fast-changing – world of technology and the role his grandmother played in getting him to where he is today. His challenge for women is to encourage their daughters to innovate. “Men run the internet. But women rule the internet!”

 

Packing a magnetic personality, the business savvy Lorna Maseko discussed the challenges she faced as one of SA’s premiere ballet dancers. From the moment she put on her first pair of dancing shoes at the age of 9, to her meteoric rise as SA’s first professional black dancer and Top Billing presenter, Lorna’s journey is nothing short of remarkable and inspiring. “There’s something about hard work that no-one can take away from you,” Lorna advised as she encouraged women to dream and work hard to achieve their dreams.

 

The woman who served as assistant to one of the greatest men on earth gave the audience an intimate glimpse of life with Madiba. Zelda la Grange shared some of the key lessons she learnt while at Nelson Mandela’s side for 19 years until his death in 2013. She poignantly shared anecdotes of how Madiba taught her valuable life lessons including the importance of living life with discipline, respect and integrity. Zelda stressed the importance of women standing together and how imperative it is to instil good values in our children to ensure that we build a great South Africa.

 

Rounding off the morning, Zolani Mahola, lead singer of Freshly Ground, took the audience on an inspiring journey of the challenges she faced and obstacles she overcame during her rise to stardom. Hers was a story that challenged everyone to pursue their dreams as she challenged women to “know your worth!” As mother, poet, songwriter and businesswoman,  Zolani’s soulful voice resonated with the audience as she peppered her time at the podium with song.

We can’t wait to rock out in front of a massive home crowd, alongside a line-up of artists who we support and respect a lot! It’s going to be huge!”

When they’re not playing overseas, high-flyers Mafikizolo are on tour or in-studio. They had such a blast at last year’s Durban Day that they’ve cleared their diaries to make more memories in Durban this year. Be prepared to rock your socks off!

 

Pop-rock band MonArk will bring their high-octane energy. The multiple-SAMA nominee group have been making waves since bursting onto the scene in 2013. It’s their first time at BP Durban Day with East Coast Radio and they’re promising a unique vocal and visual experience.

All eyes will be on multi-award winning prince of SA hip-hop AKA as he unlocks Durban and raises the Levels with his high energy performance. It will be his first time performing at this annual music event.

 

Icon and trailblazer, Thandiswa Mazwai, has amazed audiences all over the world. “Music gave me an opportunity to free my revolutionary self,” says the multiple award-winning artist. She’ll be sharing her brand of magic to People’s Park on 6 August 2015.

 

They raised the collective temperature at People’s Park last year, and now MiCasa is coming back for more. J’Something, Dr Duda and Mo-T will return from their first world tour to rock People’s Park in September with their pulse-thumping tracks.

 

“My favourite thing about Durban is the people. I’ve never been anywhere else in the world where people are so friendly and welcoming,” says Matthew Mole who’ll be taking to the stage for the first time at People’s Park. “I’ll be playing some older songs as well as quite a few of the new songs I’ve been working on. I’ve been changing up my live set quite a bit, so there will be a few more instruments on stage than I usually have.”

 

Veteran rockers Prime Circle will show why their music has had staying power for more than a decade. Their first single, She Always Gets What She Wants, has notched up over 789 000 YouTube views, making it the most-viewed South African rock song ever. Lead singer, Ross Learmonth, can’t wait to connect with KZN fans. “Without the fans, we would be nothing. And I don’t ever want to do anything else. Creating music for a living is a privilege, and we never forget that.”

 

Beatenberg will make their debut performance at BP Durban Day with East Coast Radio. “We loved Durban energy and we can’t wait to connect with our fans there.”  The Cape Town pop band will treat KZN fans to their own brand fresh new energy.

 

Last year, Khuli Chana put in a guest appearance at People’s Park. This year, he’ll bring the curtain down on BP Durban Day with East Coast Radio with his own brand of pulsating flavour and sound. The Motswako originator has been in the game for ten years, during which he’s amassed an armful of awards and teamed up with big names like Big Sean and Kendrik Lamar. “My fans can definitely expect a mean, energetic performance!” he promises.

 

Mafikizolo, Prime Circle frontman Ross Learmonth and AKA joined the BP and East Coast Radio teams at the Durban Country Club this morning for the launch of the event.

 

Tickets for BP Durban Day with East Coast Radio are available at Computicket at R180. Free entry to under 3’s and R20 for kids between 3 and 12. Gates open at 11.30am.

C4U heads to North West

Posted by radio On July - 21 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

Career Expo: Come explore and interact with TOP tertiary institutions, companies and prospective employers

 

C4U

The prospect of a career choice is an issue that touches every young learner, organization, community and our economy profoundly. As is, the majority of our learners spend more time deciding what cars, phone, and clothes to buy than choosing a career. Could this be that career decision making is hard work or that our learners have difficult time accessing information about tertiary studies and career options available? If our learners make informed choices they are less likely to experience some of the consequences of poor choices or ineffective career guidance such as tertiary institutions drop out, late tertiary applications, unemployable youth market, completing a degree that one has no interest in, indecisive labour force market or unhappy workforce.

In order to help facilitate our young learners’ transition to tertiary and to the working world, Careers For A Powerful You Pty Ltd (C4U) has, since the beginning of the year, embarked on a journey throughout townships and rural areas in South Africa and now going to Mahikeng in the North West province to create a platform where our young learners access resources, opportunities, and sound advice from professionals to unlock their full potential and make informed decisions about their career path.

 

For our young learners – the Career expo is a platform to meet and interact with a wide variety of organizations in one location, in one day. This interaction allows them to tap into opportunities available within these organizations. Also, it is a platform where learners are proactive and search for solutions with regard to careers and challenges they currently face. Our core focus is to encourage innovation and creativity and produce sustainable development within our economy and community. We have identified the following as challenges that lie ahead for our learners: admissions, financial aid, earning extra income, opportunity identification, unemployment, how to start up a business, sound advice and questions about their future.

 

For our exhibitors – the career expo is a vibrant and revitalized platform for the public and the private sectors to profile themselves as employers of choice. This is an opportunity to meet with learners from various schools in and around Mahikeng. It also presents an unmatched opportunity for talent finders to promote their organisations and compete for the best available pool of talent and connect directly with potential employees, bursary recipients, provide employment and career information.

C4U is a member of the Shanduka Black Umbrellas programme which is an initiative to support and mentor black entrepreneurs to build sustainable businesses.

As a mobile career consulting firm, we specialize in career development within township and rural areas. This is done through educational and career events, publications and CSI Projects. Our mission is to empower our ‘future leaders’ in rural and township areas and to ensure equal access of information and resources. We connect young learners with educators, marketers, companies and mentors to create quality career and learning exposure.

This Mandela Day, Saturday 18 July 2015, Heart FM DJ’s will give 67 minutes of their time to help the people of the Nomzamo Township near Strand, by painting their homes with fire retardant paint. Every year countless homes in informal settlements are destroyed by raging fires, often leading to the loss of life or severe injury

Heart FM

In honour of the late Nelson Mandela and to keep his legacy alive, Heart FM will join the Khusela Ikhaya project in partnership with Transception – a project implementation company aimed at spearheading social projects into the marketplace.

 

The specially formulated paint known as Khusela – which means in Xhosa – prevents the rapid spread of fire especially in more populated areas such as townships.  The paint not only slows down the spread of fires, but also allows more time for emergency services to respond and for neighbouring occupants of these dwellings more time to vacate their homes and escape injury.

 

Tranception hopes to paint a minimum of 67 dwellings in Nomzamo on the day.

 

Aden Thomas, Julian Naidoo, Suga, Meghan Hector and Jo-Dee Butler will give 67 minutes of their time to this worthy cause.

On Friday the 17th, Munghana Lonene fm will move on to Nwamitwa village in the Greater Tzaneen Municipality, to hand yet another house to the Grobler family in the Ruanda informal settlement. The following day the station will hand over their third house in Phalaborwa, Majeje, in partnership with the Rotary Club Phalaborwa. This project will go a long way in giving relief to the Khosa family of eight who have been living in a one room shack for as long as they can remember.
