Zahara 's Brother Shot Dead

Afro-singer Zahara has spoken out about her sadness after her brother was found dead over the weekend.
According to the Daily Sun, the singer received the devastating news of her brother's death mere hours before a gig on Sunday, 13 April.
"I was preparing for my 7pm gig in Ekurhuleni," said the award-winning songbird.

"My helper told me Mbuyiseli had been shot so I should rush home. I phoned my manager and cancelled everything and took a flight at 6.45pm to East London.
"We were very close. We used to share shoes. Sometimes when I went to perform at gigs around the Eastern Cape he used to come with me and perform on stage.
"Two weeks ago I was here at home. We spent the whole Sunday chatting. That was the last time I was with him. I am very hurt."

Eastern Cape police on Tuesday confirmed that the bodies of 25-year-old Mbuyiseli Mkutukana and 35-year-old Thanduxolo Zumani were found on the banks of a river just outside East London.
Only the cell phones of both the men were reportedly missing, and no arrests have been made.

JOHNNY CLEGG MBA SCHOLARSHIP ON OFFER

Johnny Clegg and the Henley Business School have partnered to offer a scholarship in the business school’s MBA in the Music & Creative Industries programme.
The Johnny Clegg Scholarship will be awarded to an applicant who has demonstrated a commitment to the creative industries, a keen interest in professionalising the sector, and an understanding of the critical intersection of creativity and business savvy that results in a vibrant, successful commercial enterprise.
In an environment where creatives' labour and output are often regarded as passion projects, and often not given due professional recognition, the MBA offers creative workers and arts practitioners a business qualification that addresses the unique scenario that the creative industries present.
Empowering artists
“As an artist, I had to learn about the business side of music through trial-and-error. In many real respects, I was self-taught,” comments Johnny Clegg. “With over 30 years in the industry, what I’ve learnt is that information is power – and to date, very little has been offered by academia to address how our work in the arts is structured and plays out. I’m excited to be part of empowering artists through this scholarship, and working with Henley to share this opportunity with the right candidate.”
Image © Marguerite de Villiers
The scholarship covers all the R220,000 tuition costs of the MBA programme. Representing the best of both worlds, the Music & Creative Industries MBA programme comprises Henley’s core MBA, with the music and creative industry sector section allocated additional time to contextualise and discuss industry-specific issues. Principles of flexible learning apply to the Music & Creative Industries MBA, ensuring a study experience that is in step with the realities of most candidates' lives as full-time businesspeople and professionals.
Art that reaches the world over
Dean Jon Foster-Pedley of the Henley Business School says, “We’re thrilled about this collaboration with Johnny Clegg. As an artist, his story speaks directly to the principles of this MBA; he has harnessed his innate creativity as an artist, and applied sound business principles to ensure that his art reaches audiences the world over, transforms perceptions, improves our lives and is commercially viable. This is at the heart of what the MBA in the Music & Creative industries programme has set out to achieve. We’re looking forward to offering this scholarship to a creative individual in partnership with one of South Africa’s most inspiring artists, Johnny Clegg.”
To enter, interested candidates are to apply directly to the Henley Business School – application forms are available on the Henley website, www.Henleysa.ac.za. Successful candidates will be selected based on Henley’s criteria, and the final decision made jointly by Johnny Clegg and the Henley Business School.

The Meaning of UDU 's Nyoso Hit Track


After several talks about the song on radio stations and entertainment TV, tracking down the pair behind the song had to be a task to help music lovers understand what they dancing to.

Known individually as Pex Africah (Tebogo Mbolekwa) and Deejaybuckz (Obakeng Ramahali) the musically joined pair have hit the entertainment stage with their dance hit single going viral on various radio stations.The Duo together call themselves UDU.


Trending on twitter and other social media platforms people want to know what the word means.
Defined by the duo Nyoso means nonsense.

“It’s a kasi term from Soshanguwe in Pretoria meaning nonsense, anything that does not make sense to you and sounds like rubbish can be named Nyoso.”
“We were just having fun in studio, little did we know the song is going to be a hit,” says Deejaybuckz
Translated 'don’t tell me about nonsense' the song has lyrics describing a scenario of a hustler who wants nothing to do with girls or anything that won’t bring him money because it’s nonsense.

“The song is a joke, its fun and more about making people laugh, hence we featured TollassMo,” adds Pex Africah.The double act under Kalawa Jazmee says they are not like Uhuru, Black Motions but versatile in their music.“People can’t position us with the other happening bands, we are doing us. We are multipurpose in our style and doing African drum”
With an album on the line up in 2014, songs such as African Plea, Samatapayapa and Nyoso are set to make waves on dance floors.

Durban 's Kwaito star Tzozo’s family home burns down


Kwaito star Tzozo is a sad man.

His family home in Umgababa, south of Durban, was burnt down yesterday morning.
The house was occupied by his niece, Zama Hlatshwayo (23) and her siblings. When the SunTeam arrived at the house at about 4.30am, firefighters had put out the fire.

According to Zama, the house was burnt down by her boyfriend, who is the father of her baby.

She said he became jealous after he saw her with the father of her firstborn child on Monday.
Zama said later that night her boyfriend returned to her home and beat her with a wheel spanner.
“I fought back and my sister helped me until we managed to escape to the neighbour’s house.

 “After a few hours we heard a noise and when we went to check, we found our house in flames.”
Tzozo said the incident has spoiled his South African Music Awards mood. Captain Thulani Zwane said cops are investigating but no arrest has been made.                                                                                       Booking Tzozo , contact 0715199905 or email djsproduction.events@gmail.com

The beautiful singer from Umthatha in the Eastern Cape rose to fame when her first single, Isi’Bhanxa, was nominated in the most gifted newcomer category at the Channel O Africa Music Video Awards last year. And she is spreading her wings further.
The 24-year-old has been selected as one of the choirmasters of Clash of the ChoirsSeason 2 which starts on Mzansi Magic on Sunday, and her second album is on its way.

“Being young will be to my advantage. None of the other choirmasters will see me as a threat.
“I plan to shock them by not doing what they expect from me. I know everyone thinks I’ll do the Sister Act thing or push the choir to be like Joyous Celebration, but prepare to be surprised.”

2014 Jagermeister 's Back The Artist

How it Works

Jägermeister has always been about the music. Last year we launched Back The Artist 2013. Jägermeister went in search of the next hit radio single, and we certainly found it.
The 2013 Winner Sheen Skaiz is currently recording his album with Justin De Nobrega as well as having a documentary and music video shot in CPT.
This year we searching for your biggest track from hard core, deep house , rock n roll, pop, kwaito, to trance music.

We want to give every artist the opportunity to step up and be counted.
Back The Artist works in the following way, any band/artist famous or the unknown from South Africa can submit an audio track. It’s the music that is the most important.
The tracks are then graded, to ensure sound quality,and those selected are into the first round of public voting.

There are 4 rounds of voting, Top 80, Top 40, Top 20, and Top 10. These are weekly votes, so each artist or band must encourage their fans in order to stay in the competition. Votes are limited to one per day per person, this is monitored carefully to ensure fairness to all.
Each week, there will be a cut and the remainder will go through to the next round.
Once in the top 10, the judges decision comes into play. The judges are music industry veterans, hit song producers and the Jägermeister team. The judges decision is final.
What’s up for grabs? Production time in studio with one of South Africa’s leading radio producer.

Winner gets a chance to record an EP with a SAMA Award winning producer

DINEO SINKS LEGIT DEAL

 
Dineo Ranaka is the 2014 winter brand ambassador.
Controversial radio and TV personality Dineo Ranaka has clinched a lucrative deal with Legit for her clothing line LUV DR!
Dineo is the 2014 winter brand ambassador for this growing brand. Since 2008 they have had top entertainment industry players like Bonang Matheba, Minnie Dlamini, Zizo Beda, Sade Giliberti, Toya Delazy and just recently, DJ Zinhle.
The deal allows her to show her LUV DR range which consists of stylish prints, gold tones and sophisticated stilettos.
Dineo said she was excited.She said she knows that to maintain success is very difficult but she was prepared to work hard.
She said: “From a business point of view it is a very great opportunity for a small business like LUV DR to be endorsed by a bigger brand.”
She said her brand and the Legit brand both have too many similarities and she couldn’t have asked for anything more at this stage.
When asked why women would buy her range? she said: “Their confidence can be expected to grow 100%.
“They can expect to be empowered because the brand is so stylish and it’s made with love.”
She told SunBuzz that she wants women to embrace her range as they were currently doing on social media.
“While I was with Club 808 on e.tv I used to dress myself and people will demand that I put the brand in stores. “Now it’s time for the clothes to be accessible to them too.”
When asked about any fears about getting into the clothing business, she said that she didn’t have any.
She said she was a very faithful woman spiritually and the Lord has presented this opportunity to her.
“Be what you want to be and not what people want you to be,” concluded Dineo.
She started her label in 2011 and attended the London International School of Fashion in Pretoria briefly before focusing on her acting, radio and music career dreams.
Legit also confirmed on Twitter: The LUV DR range will be in selected stores from 15 April and in all stores from 24 April.

MICASA JUST WANNA TURN YOU ON

 
Micasa has released a new music video for their new hit song "Turn You On". Turn You On is a follow on single from Micasa,s first single "Jika".This single is tipped to take over from where JIKA left off and from what I've heard I can't ague - its a smash hit. I saw Micasa performing this song live at Ekurhuleni Youth Festival-Germiston Lake and judging by the crowd's response I can safely say, its a turn up!
 
The music video debuted last week on MTV but for those of you who missed it, djsproduction made sure you can watch it.

MANDLA TO PURSUE MUSIC AFTER BEING A MILL RICHER

Mandla Hlatshwayo (24), a spaza shop owner who hails from Sebokeng in the Vaal was crowned the winner of Big Brother Mzansi. Mandla walks away with a one million prize. Mandla rose to popularity after a steaming sex scene in the shower with the Capetonian Lexi. The voice of Big Brother shouted,"you have been the most humble person in the house".Mandla's fans remained loyal as they kept voting for him to make sure he remained in the house until last night when he was crowned winner after being in the house for 63 days.
The Vaal-born entrepreneur, father of a two year old son has always been the strongest since the competition started. Filled with a joy, he thanked his fans and everyone who have been voting for him throughout the entire show. “ I plan to pursue music as career" Mandla declared. Asked about his relationship with Lexi - he said "when I left home I had a girlfriend back home.it was very hard for me to start a relationship in the house, Lexi and I are going to have to discuss our relationship.
Mandla’s mother Ntombi who was wearing her tradition Zulu attire could not hide her joy for her son. Second runner-up Iris walked away with R150 000 cash from Lover’s Plus.
At the beginning of the show Iris was part of the chamber mates who were locked in the chamber for two weeks. She said: "When I auditioned for BBM I had just given birth to my daughter , so being away from her for so long was a huge sacrifice for me - she was the most important  thing I left behind and that inspired me to pull through every time” .The remaining six housemates were voted off one by one last night.
 
KHULI CHANA was called to perform at the closing ceremony and as usual, he did not disappoint. Khuli Chana wrote on his facebook page "you know we gonna do it hape le hape...."
