Why do you think a show like ‘Win A Home’ is so entertaining to watch?

I think it’s the sheer awe of the design inspiration and the personalities of the design duos. Some watch solely to inspire their own design ideas and some for the drama of the duos and the journey they go through.

Cassper Nyovest attributes #FillUpMosesMabhida success to fans

Cassper Nyovest #FillUpMosesMabhida

Following an extremely challenging period of organising #FillUpMosesMabhida, Cassper Nyovest’s annual Fill Up concert took place this past weekend at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban and was a huge success due to the fans that came out to support the multi award-winning musician.

Cassper Nyovest took it back to ekasi with a magnificent authentic South African production at #FillUpMosesMabhida but the real highlight was the electrifying atmosphere at the stadium where fans sang and danced to every song during Cassper Nyovest’s set and exuded such positive energy. Cassper Nyovest can’t thank his fans enough for making his fourth annual Fill Up concert a success.

Other important contributors to the success of #FillUpMosesMabhida were the sponsors that came on board and stuck with Cassper Nyovest throughout the numerous rumours that riddled the concert and chased other sponsors away: from false claims of allocated funds to the concert to rumours about the concert being shut down.

Cassper Nyovest would like to thank Ciroc for jumping on board from the get-go and their constant support and belief in him. He would also like to thank SABC 1, Ukhozi FM and Castle Lite for supporting #FillUpMosesMabhida, and extends appreciation for the free stadium usage offered by Durban Tourism.

Her early childhood

She always knew that music was her calling, have loved to sing all her life. Growing up in a musical family, her Granddad being a composer, songwriter and conductor for choral choirs influenced her love for music at an early age.

Life was good for her as a child, she enjoyed putting on shows at home singing along to her favourite artists, but I always had a yearning of being like Brenda Fassie someone who would sing for the love of singing.
We all have life-changing moments and mine came in the form of a tragic train accident where she was travelling with her 3 sister-cousins and grandmother to Johannesburg. At the tender age of 10 she had to listen to her cousins suffer in agony of the train that had de-railed.

Her sister-cousins did not make it and the aftermath of this event (to this day) is like dealing with the aftermath of a Tsunami. 3 children gone and she survived. The emotional guilt that she has carried over the years has been a heavy one. Music went from being a love to being a form of escaping her reality. Life is not easy, the obstacle that we face at times seem virtually impossible to overcome. But in those words, lies the secret to making any dream happen – “It is Possible”.
