Nicki Minaj scores three Grammy nominations

Posted by radio On February - 10 - 2016 ADD COMMENTS

Girl Power As Nicki Minaj Flies the Female Flag

Multiple Grammy Award-nominated superstar, Nicki Minaj, continues to break records and impact pop culture at large. Nominated in three categories at this year’s 58th Grammy Awards, the queen of rap has this year made her mark in all three categories by being the only female nominated in these traditionally male-dominated categories!

When asked what winning a Grammy Award would mean to her, this is what Nicki Minaj had to say: “Winning a Grammy would inspire women to continue to rap and write and to never give up. I’ve put so many years into this culture that I often feel is overlooked. Prior to my three albums, I put out three mixtapes, which also changed the game for women in rap. I would literally sit in a room for days and write, and my sole purpose was to be better than the boys and to prove that women are just as smart, creative, witty, business-savvy, etc. I never really felt that male rappers saw us as their equals. I was determined to change that”.

As well as these three well-deserved nominations, Nicki Minaj has been critically lauded for her third full-length album, “The Pinkprint”, which leapt to the top of the Billboard 200 and Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts, cementing her status as rap’s reigning queen.
Since the release of Nick Minaj’s debut album “Pink Friday” released in 2010, Minaj has managed to land an outstanding 10 Grammy nominations in the last five years. The 58th Grammy Awards is set to take place on 16th February 2016 where hopefully Nicki Minaj will win an award or two before her upcoming South African Pinkprint tour in March 2016.

The chart-topping, multi-award winning rapper and actress, who has an astonishing 96 million fans on social media, will at last be performing a series of highly-anticipated and long-awaited concerts to her many thousands of adoring fans in SA. Tickets are already being snapped up as these fanatical followers are determined to avoid the risk of losing out.

The Nicki Minaj Pinkprint concert tickets can be purchased from www.ticketpro.co.za and selected Edgars retail stores, with prices starting at R490.

Johannesburg: Ticketpro Dome – 17 March
Durban: Moses Mabhida Stadium – 20 March
Cape Town: Grand Arena, GrandWest – 22 March

The Nicki Minaj Pinkprint tour is presented by Airey Scott Entertainment, 5FM, Metro FM, and Channel O.

MTN takes first step towards music rights compliance

Posted by radio On February - 10 - 2016 ADD COMMENTS

MTN has today settled 92% of the CAPASSO invoice relating to music sales in 2014. The remaining 8% relates to the alleged disputed songs.

mtn logo

CAPASSO welcomes this development, and is also encouraged by the delivery of 2015 usage reports which were also received from MTN. However, these still don’t indicate all sales made on the MTN platform,.

“We are encouraged and hope this signifies the beginning of better engagement with MTN. We however still require MTN to take responsibility for all of outstanding copyright liability and to comply with the Copyright Act of South Africa. This means they must enter into a licence agreement with CAPASSO before they continue to sell CAPASSO-member music” stated Nothando Migogo.

She added that royalties received today would be distributed to the rightsholders next month.

Eight celebrated SA DJs including Black Coffee share the bill with their international counterparts
Some of South Africa’s most celebrated DJs – including award-winning Black Coffee, “Godfather of SA house” DJ Christos and three-year-old social media sensation and SA’s Got Talent winner DJ Arch Jnr – join an impressive international line-up at Back to the Old Skool.

 

ba2old

This global celebration of House music takes place at Mary Fitzgerald Square in Newtown in Johannesburg on Saturday, February 27 with international superstars Roger Sanchez, David Morales, Jazzie B and Todd Terry already announced on the bill.

Also joining the South African contingent are DJ Ganyani, Bob Mabena, DJ Mbuso Phezulu, Sishisoul and Fistaz Mixwell.

 

Black Coffee – currently in the running for three 2016 Metro FM Music Awards and already a South African Music Award (SAMA) winner – is regarded as one of South Africa’s best house DJs. Sidestepping Afro-house clichés and stage-managed highs in favour of restrained sophistication, Black Coffee’s penchant is for true Afropolitan house: home-brewed but trendsetting, fashion-conscious and future-focused.

 

DJ Christos is a legendary DJ and one of South Africa’s most respected house producers, widely credited for laying the foundations for the SA dance scene’s flourishing platform. Often called the country’s “Godfather of House”, Christos Katsaitis was responsible for releasing some of SA’s most ground-breaking artists including Boom Shaka, Lebo Mathosa, Shana, Daw and Black Coffee. His deejaying prowess has been showcased on multiple mix CDs including Club Classics, Wicked Sounds, Magic Rhythms and Real Tone Cuts.

 

DJ Arch Jnr became a social media sensation when he was first discovered by social media users after his family started posting videos of the toddler showing off his talent on a mixing deck in January last year. The three-year-old DJ from Alexandra then went on to win SA’s Got Talent and capture the hearts of a nation.

 

DJ Ganyani – nominated for a 2016 Metro FM Music Award for Song of the Year for Talk To Me – has achieved recognition and respect for his mixing flair at most of the hottest nightclubs in South Africa and globally. He has produced a number of hit albums and performed alongside many of House music’s biggest names.

 

Bob Mabena has had an extraordinary career and celebrated 25 years in the entertainment industry last year. As well as hosting a wide variety of television shows and presenting on major radio stations, Mabena – who is now a presenter at Kaya FM – also spins the discs.

 

Sishisoul’s journey into the world of music started in 1986 as a school DJ. This music lover and collector describes himself as an “ol’ skool Disc Jockey” who loves the warmth of vinyl and the feel when playing at a party.  Soul in the music is the base at which he chooses his collection whether it finds expression in jazz, house, mbaqanga, rock or samba.

 

Fistaz Mixwell has performed in top nightclubs around the world. He is regarded as a formidable force in the South African entertainment industry.

 

Back to the Old Skool is the beginning a series of South African events and digital content that will pay homage to the pioneers of House music. Back to the Old Skool takes place at Mary Fitzgerald Square in Newtown on Saturday, February 27. Gates open at noon. Tickets are available at Computicket. General access is R250; VIP R650 and hospitality packages from R1800.

 

Back to the Old Skool is presented by Global Event Architects in association with Massive Management, Jeep, Kaya FM, Mzansi Magic Music, Ttrumpet, Sowetan and Sunday World

MTN BUSHFIRE 2016 – ARTIST ANNOUNCEMENTS

As in previous years, the MTN BUSHFIRE artist line-up will feature a dynamic range of artists from across southern Africa and the globe.

 

MTN Bushfire is proud to announce that Mali’s internationally acclaimed world-music stars Songhoy Blues have been confirmed for this year’s main stage. Though their music bears elements of contemporary rock and hip hop, at its heart is a deep attachment to the homegrown songs and dances of Mali’s Songhoy people, as well as to such iconic West African guitar heroes as Baba Salah and Ali Farka Touré.

 

Their debut album has been described by top music magazine NME as “a masterpiece of desert blues, blending American guitar licks with Malian grooves.” Formed from the adversity of Mali, Songhoy Blues’ music is full of northern flavours: Gao takamba, Touareg guitar, Songhoy trance and traditional desert melodies. But all those tired old ‘world music’ prejudices have no place here. Songhoy Blues are four guys, guitar, drums, bass and vocals, driving rhythms, big hearts and a big story to tell.

 

Also confirmed for 2016 is the exciting new South African collaborative outfit Bombshelter Beast featuring Pitch Black Afro.  This group of renegades is making waves with their genre breaking eclectic fusion of Afrobalkan Skadubhall and has to be seen to be believed. The ever-changing international line-up includes jazz artists and for their MTN BUSHFIRE 2016 performance will feature Pitch Black Afro.

 

Other top acts performing at MTN Bushfire 2016 include one of South Africa’s hottest acts – Mafikizolo – whose 2014 comeback made waves across South Africa and beyond, have also been confirmed for MTN Bushfire 2016.

 

Joining these initial confirmed artists is Pablo Nouvelle, a filmmaker and musician from Switzerland who takes soul “back to the future” with a combination of new sounds and old samples. Manu Delago, an Austrian percussionist and composer, best known as Bjork’s hang drummer, will also perform alongside saxophonist and clarinet player Pepe Auer.

 

South African artists confirmed include, as always, cutting edge acts such as Native Young, Nomadic Orchestra, Felix Laband, and Toby2Shoes.

 

Acts from Swaziland include Bholoja, Nomzamo Zaza Dlamini & Fanaza.

 

Further acts are being finalized and more artists will be confirmed in the build-up to MTN Bushfire 2016.

Muffinz

Kicking off  with a stellar line up, the event sees the first booking of 2016 boasts two multi-award winning artists on one stage – Gospel Afro-pop sensation Zahara and the 5-piece eclectic retro pop outfit, The Muffinz.

 

Zahara was literally an overnight sensation after her signing with TS Records.  The young rural star had quietly honed her craft in her home village before signing a deal that would change her life and ultimately see her becoming one of the countries best selling artists.

The Muffinz, culturally different from Zahara with their urban roots, were also shot to the limelight after playing the Melville bar and club scene for a few years and generating a truly charming, fresh live act that literally nobody could resist.

 

Both acts have topped radio charts, packed venues and raked in multiple awards in the few years since their humble beginnings and will now be sharing the stage for one night only at the Kaya FM Presents Live at the Bassline show on the 6th February 2016.

 

Tickets are limited and available now at www.webtickets.co.za for R200 or R220 at the door.  The show starts promptly at 8pm.
