When I made this song I didn’t really expect it to do very much. I just wanted to create something inspiring and heartfelt. It was more of a message to myself than anything else. I was surprised to see how people reacted to it and I am still humbled by the response. The production from AB Crazy and his vocal assistance was enough to inspire me to put it out. I asked a friend of mine Tlhonepho Thobejane to conceptualize a video for me and direct it. What came out was something different and real. I hope you guys like it.
I am so excited about a few movies that are coming this year. Here are the top 3 I am most looking forward to right now:
Adonis Johnson (Michael B Jordan) never knew his famous father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born. Still, there’s no denying that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis heads to Philadelphia, the site of Apollo Creed’s legendary match with a tough upstart named Rocky Balboa.
As soon as I saw this trailer I was instantly sold. The Rocky legacy lives on but this time Stallone gives the shine to Michael B Jordan, who is also in the up coming Fantastic 4 reboot.
Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation
The IMF agency comes under threat from the Syndicate, a near-mythical organization of assassins and rogue operatives who kill to order. Faced with the IMF’s disbandment, Ethan Hunt assembles his team for their final and most difficult mission to prove the Syndicate’s existence and bring the organization down by any means necessary.
Ethan Hunt is back and the action on this looks crazy, let’s hope this fifth installment in the franchise doesn’t fall short.
Michael Fassbender plays Steve Jobs, the pioneering founder of Apple, with Academy Award®-winning actress Kate Winslet starring as Joanna Hoffman, former marketing chief of Macintosh. Steve Wozniak, who co-founded Apple, is played by Seth Rogen, and Jeff Daniels stars as former Apple CEO John Sculley. The film also stars Katherine Waterston as Chrisann Brennan, Jobs ex-girlfriend, and Michael Stuhlbarg as Andy Hertzfeld, one of the original members of the Apple Macintosh development team.
Let’s hope this will make us forget that dry movie with Ashton Kutcher.
Maftown rapper G-C collaborates with Rands and Nairas hit maker AB CRAZY to bring HOLD ON. A song about staying motivated and not giving up on your hustle no matter the obstacles. Over a soulful beat produced by AB Crazy himself, and backed by angelic harmonies, this is a song with a lot of heart and a powerful message. Listen to the song below:
Wow, I am still in a state of complete and utter shock. I am also floating somewhere between fatigue and alcohol poisoning. Anyway,let’s get down to it! So I went to Oppo Koppi this weekend (FYI: Oppi Koppi is a 3 day music festival held in Northam, Limpopo Province, South Africa every year). I have always heard about it but never had the chance to go, well this year I did. It’s 3 whole days of camping, dancing, drinking and all kinds of debauchery you can get up to out in the wilderness. I was not ready! From my arrival I knew it was going to be interesting. The main part of Oppi Koppi consists of stalls for food, drinks, clothes, chill areas, and 6 music stages.
Now at this point I find it necessary to point out the fact that I didn’t take nearly as many pictures as I should have. So the experience I had is something hard to describe, but I will repeat that I wasn’t ready. There is always music playing somewhere, and always someone new to meet. I met a lot of different, crazy and interesting characters. I roamed every corner I could of that place and discovered a new adventure every time. The people are just in a happy spirit and Oppi being a predominantly white event, I must say I felt welcome as a black guy in that environment. The music was my favorite part, I partied like a fucking rock star the whole time and discovered talent I previously didn’t know about. I spent a lot of my down time at the Mtv tent meeting people and drinking absolutely non stop. I won’t lie though, that place was like one giant obstacle course. But in conclusion it was wonderful, an experience I am so happy to have gone through, I will never be the same after that. To my fellow black South Africans who want to experience this country in a different way, you have to go when you get the opportunity. Whether or not I will go back again next year? I will let fate decide. Now let me end this with a phrase I picked up at Oppi; IN DUST WE TRUST!!!!!
I was recently very fortunate to go to the Sci-Bono Discovery Centre in Newtown, Johannesburg. This place is really special. It’s a centre dedicated to science and games for children. There are tons of things to keep kids busy for an entire day. It’s constructed like a labrynth with something to indulge in around every corner. Newtown itself is a beautiful place just oozing with culture and interesting places to discover for the wondering adult. I wasn’t even aware there was even a place like this in that area. I have nieces and nephews and I cant wait to take them there one day so they can exercise their minds and imaginations. I almost forgot to mention it’s also a popular birthday party venue.
