Last Saturday, I had the opportunity to chat to some locals celebs who attended the Kanye West concert. Besides being super excited to hear “Yeezy” they told me about projects that they were working on and what fans can look forward to in the near future.
The ever vivacious Tumi Masemola told me about her latest TV show on Mzansi Magic called “Samsokolo” – the show’s tagline is “keeping up with the Motsepes.” Sounds interesting. Gang of Instrumentals also plan on releasing a new album this year, and Tumi may also be releasing a solo album. Keep your eyes peeled.
The gorgeous Lorna Maseko, former ballerina and Top Billing presenter, said that she was about to cover the opening of parliament for the show, and that her own company was on the up and up. Her dream was “to be the best businesswoman in Africa.” Definitely achievable Lorna! Reach for the stars.
Danny K attended with his stunning wife, Lisa, and told me that the first single from his new album is due to be released in a month’s time and the full album will be available in June. He said that the album will be a departure from his usual sound and that it will surprise many people. I asked him about the successful SHOUT Campaign, and he said that they will attempt a third one this year.
Metro FM Presenter, Azania Mosaka, told me that she is planning to write a book this year, so keep a look out for that.
