The past weekend was a big one for the South African music industry. Making strides in elevating the landscape and setting the bar high for the looming decade, both Cassper Nyovest and Black Coffee continued their concerts.

On both days, South African DJ Black Coffee delivered his sophomore Music Is King shows in Johannesburg and Durban.

In Rustenberg, Cassper Nyovest took his annual Fill Up concert to Royal Bafokeng stadium, marking the first time he’s taken on a stadium in his native town. The 5th instalment of Nyovest’s historic show took place on Sunday.

The rapper unleashed an energetic performance of his powered catalogue, which caught fire when his fist megahit, Doc Shebeleza, helped him to skyrocket to the top of the charts earlier this decade. That was the beginning of one of the South African music industry’s biggest music careers of all time, a Cassper Nyovest who would continue to break records.

Consistent with his reputation as one of South Africa’s best live performers, Cassper Nyovest made sure fans leave with a night they will never forget. He delivered a world class show where the quality of production, choreography, sound, design all functioned to produce a night to remember.

The rapper kept fans mesmerised by his multiple outfit changes, a few which came with different hair colours.

Mr. Tsibip executed no less than three hair changes from blonde to orange to pink.

Apart from the hair and custom made wardrobe, some of the show’s biggest highlights included a performance with his father, a tribute to the late HHP, as well as action call for men to do better as he spoke against gender-based violence and so much more.

Happening just a day before his 29th birthday, the shindig gave the rapper all the more reason to celebrate. “I couldn’t have asked for a better homecoming”, he said in a press statement.  “The best birthday present ever! We’re doing it again next year.”

Call for Submissions for the Jozi Film Festival

Published

Joburg’s longest running multi-genre film festival has opened its call for 2020 submissions.

Filmmakers are being invited to submit their works for the year’s upcoming prestigious shindig, which is aimed at showcasing exceptional works produced by African filmmakers.

Now in its ninth year, the festival is slated to take place over 4 days from 17 – 20 September 2020 at various venues across the city (Covid-19 willing!), showcasing local and international feature films, short fiction and documentaries.

Submissions are open until 15 May, with a late deadline of 5 June All entries must be submitted via FilmFreeway

The prestigious show is 100% independent.

The fact that they do not curate the festival, but rather rely on submissions to authentically reflect the creative landscape of the South African film industry, is part of the reason why the festival matters so much for elevating the space.

Therein lies the magic. An emerging filmmaker can easily have their work screened alongside distinguished industry incumbents like Akin Omotoso. Or Oliver Schmitz.

“We feel it is important to support both upcoming talent and established filmmakers, and to afford all entrants an equal chance of being screened”, the festival explains.

The Jozi Film Festival is held at various locations around Johannesburg annually in late September/early October, over a four day period. Over the last eight years, their cornerstone has been Bioscope Independent Cinema in Maboneng.

Each year kicks of with a premiere night, and then the festival culminates in an awards night where the best films in each

category are recognised. The categories are; Best Feature Film, Best Feature Length Documentary, Best Short Documentary, Best Short Fiction, Best Student Film, Best Director and Best Young Director. Awards are given out to both local and international films in most of these categories.

Through their partnership with Discovery Networks, the Jozi Film Festival continue affording African filmmakers the opportunity for exposure through the ‘Don’t Stop Wondering’ Award.

Castle Lite Unlocks 2020 postponed

In light of everything, groove included, in the wake of COVID-19, Castle Lite Unlocks has now joined the long list of events that have been postponed. As previously reported by QuenchSA, this year’s concert’s was slated to take place on June 12th at ProTicket Dome in Johannesburg.

American rapper Cardi B had been announced as this year’s headliner.

“We share the disappointment of our fans during this time of uncertainty, however, as a brand that cares for its consumers, we cannot ignore the growing concerns for health and safety as a result of the rapid spread of the COVID-19 in South Africa and around the world”, said Castle Lite Brand Director Silke Bucker.

“It is important to highlight that an event of this magnitude has multiple moving parts and for this reason, the brand is deliberating and will communicate further details around new date and tickets by the end of March 2020.”

The event organisers have also assured that they are in talks with Cardi, and that the event will be back on as soon as it is safe again to do so.

And because the show is merely being postponed, there’s no need to initiate a ticket refund for those who’ve already purchased their ticket. TicketPro has confirmed that the current tickets will be valid for the yet to be announced reschedule.

Should a consumer wish to no longer attend the experience, they will be able to obtain a full refund, details of which will be communicated once we have announced the new performance date.
