IN THE NEWS: RADIO DJ ANELE MOVES TO HIGHVELD + JILL SCOTT TO PERFORM AT CAPE TOWN JAZZ FESTIVAL + MORE!!



Filed under : Africa, Entertainment

It’s that time of the year where by in South Africa we get ready for new radio line up to be announced.

Anele & Grant

And this week saw the end of 5FM duo, Anele Mdoda & Grant Nash, as the two part ways after four years.  5FM released a statement stating as follows

“Grant an avid Buddhist and vegan, is retiring from radio in order to further himself spiritually while Anele is joining another broadcaster.”

Anele heads back to 94.7 Highveld Stereo to host the afternoon drive, and may I add that she will be the second woman in the country to host a drive time show. Go girl!!

Wishing both all the best in their new ventures!!

 

The Annual 13th Cape Town International Jazz Festival boasts 41 performing artists. And it has been confirmed that singer, poet and actress Jill Scott will be performing at the festival.

Amongst the 41 performing artists, Steve Tyrell joins the lineup, Hip Hop artist Pharoache Monch, Zahara, Zamajobe, Lindiwe Suttle, Zakes Bantwini, HHP (how I would love to meet this guy), James Ingram, Gabriel Tchiema, Bra Hugh Masekela and Xia Jia just to name a few.

The festival will take place on the 30th and 31st March 2012 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre.  Tickets available at Computicket and Shoprite-Checkers stores.

My personal favorite South African reality show “Running with the Reps” returns for season two!!

Larry revealed:

“There will be more drama, more dancing and viewers will see the Reps become an even bigger entity”.

I certainly cannot wait for it to start!! Check it out on VuzuTV, Wednesday, 29th February at 7:30PM.

Remember how we were left wondering what is next?? So don’t miss it!!

Rumor has it that radio and talk show host Penny Lebyana has quit South African radio station, ThobelaFM. Wonder if any other station has offered her a slot, otherwise why would she quit??
