The show goes on.

The Royal Soapie Awards 2020

The nationwide lockdown may have imposed some serious restrictions to the entertainment, with a major event being cancelled and postponed due to the outbreak of COVID-19, but award shows are getting pretty creative about navigating the situation to deliver their annual gong bang outs.

The Royalty Soapie Awards will be proceeding business as usual for their 4th annual show this year. The awards, which the best performances within the Mzansi television industry, will be debuting their first ceremony to be taped in a studio environment.

Set to be recorded under strict safety measures with no in-venue physical audience invited whilst observing social distancing with very few crew members on-site for the recording, the ceremony has confirmed compliance with the lockdown regulations.

And it’s all because the show needs to go on.

Says Winnie Ntshaba, Founder and CEO of the RSAs, “The entertainment sector has played a vital role in offering escapism in these trying and unprecedented times. We felt the need to find means to honour and celebrate the talent and to encourage new talent within the television industry. We yield the call to productions to take part as submissions for entries open on the 16th July 2020 and will close on the 30th July 2020”

With a slew of new telenovelas having shaken the screens within this last year, the show is bound to have some interesting twists this year.

“Each year we see storytelling evolve with the production quality, creativity and excellence peaking high. We hope to continue shining light to the arts by celebrating the actors that make each scene seem effortless, from those who are bold to pen down their imagination and to the unsung heroes behind the scenes” concludes, Ntshaba.

Entry submission will open on July 16th 2020.

Inside Zonke and Sibongile Khumalo’s Women’s Month Concerts

Musical experiences are back!

Published

Zonke Live in Concert 2020

South African music lovers may have only nostalgic memories of some of the finest concerts and festivals they have attended as an artifact of a world we all miss in these times. But not even the countrywide Lockdown will stop the music from melting away the blues.

In celebration of the looming Women’s Month, the South African State Theatre has announced virtual music concerts by legend Mama Sibongile Khumalo, and critically lauded songbird Zonke Dikana. Both shows are included as part of SAST’s Season 3 of online streaming service.

Live In Concert with Zonke Dikana will premiere on Women’s Day, August 9th at 15:00, while Khumalo’s concert will conclude the month’s celebrations on August 30th at 15:00.  Tickets can be purchased at Webtickets from R70. Fans can stream both concerts on the SAST’s online channel from the comfort of their living rooms.

Mama Sibongile Khumalo is a living legend and a national treasure. Leveraging on her ‘first love for stage,’ time and again the State Theatre borrows her in a bid to celebrate her while she is still alive and to remind the nation of its fortunes.

Last year, the National Order of Ikhamanga in Silver recipient was cast in Kwanele, a production based on the wake of 2019’s xenophobic attacks and GBV written and directed by award-winning playwright Aubrey Sekhabi. Khumalo featured with the team for the premiere of Kwanele in Angola and throughout the homecoming run at the State Theatre.

With now five studio albums under her belt, the multiplatinum-selling Zonke is proving to being an unstoppable force. Her recent album, LOVE(2018), was certified platinum in November last year.

Hit records such as Feelings, Jikizinto, Nameless and many more in her enchanting discography, have a reputation to keeping audiences on their in her sold-out affairs. In this encounter, she will be performing LIVE in an empty 1300-seater Opera Theatre but streamed on SAST online channel.

Donald

With all the bursts of Lockdown Entertainment to keep us sane in spite of all the blues, seeing the red mic bless our screens will likely be a delight for a chilled Sunday vibe.

Even without the bevs, Donald’s mellow vocals melting on uptempo instrumentals as he pours out his heart throughout his sprawling catalogue is always worth it.

DONALD

And this Sunday, the R&B singer will be delivering a performance on the Ayepyep Lockdown Sessions, a new virtual groove offering locals found out about here.  Airing on Trace Urban on the Sundays, the sessions are hosted by Pretoria natives DJ Sumbody and  Lamiez Holworthy.

In case you’ve been living under a rock, the good sis has proven throughout the lockdown that her chops to manage the vibe on the decks is something to marvel at, and we’re excited to see her star rise within the ranks of the dance republic.

The show airs on Trace Urban (DStv channel 325), Sundays at 16:00.
