Eminem heading to SA in 2014


A couple of weeks ago I heard murmurs and rumours about Eminem heading out to South Africa next year, but I left them at that until something official was announced. Well that day has arrived…

94.7 Highveld Stereo presents Eminem live in South Africa. Em will be in the city next March for one massive, epic night only. The Rapture tour rolls into Johannesburg on the 1st of March at the Ellis Park Stadium. Capetonians, he’ll be in your city on the 26th of February at the Cape Town stadium. Tickets go on sale on Thursday and you know they’re going to sell quickly, so don’t miss out!

JHB – Ellis Park from R400-R1.250

CT – CT Stadium From R350-R1.250

Here’s hoping that Eminem will perform this ‘monstrous’ song at the concert next year:

Want to be apart of Our Continent?

Our Continent2

Check this out. Yesterday, Continental Tyre SA launched its new initiative called Our Continent. With this one they’re looking for is you and your adventure from South Africa and beyond. Upload your picture via Twitpic, make sure your Twitter locations are on when you upload, caption the picture and share your story with everyone out there. Whether you’re driving a 4×4, a motorbike or you’re hopping on bicycle to ride the Argus, one thing’s a given, you’re using a tyre of some nature to get from point A to point B. So why not share you’re experience in getting there.

The one thing I love about my cellphones is the fact that they take relatively descent photos and because my game is visual, I tend to snap a lot of pictures, so you can be sure to see some of my pics on Our Continent and soon as I am back in Afriqud du Sud.

Full press release below:

Today sees the launch of Our Continent (www.ourcontinent.co.za) –  a crowdsourced initiative from Continental Tyre SA – a map of the best on and off-road destinations from around South Africa, and eventually, even the rest of Africa.

From city to Savannah, coastline to mountaintop, whatever your adventure, Continental Tyre wants you to share your journey via Twitpic and in turn share others’ journeys with you.

We take the rubber that separates us from the tar for granted but, regardless of our vehicle of choice – two wheels or four – it is the humble tyre that moves us from one destination to another.

Continental Tyre SA has also mapped out all of its South Africa stores on Our Continent, so if you are in need of a replacement or two, you will be able to find your nearest Conti Partner on your journey via your desktop or mobile device.

Happy Youth Day

Today is Youth Day in South Africa. It’s a day that must never be forgotten. The youth of 1976 stood up to the apartheid government, some even paid the ultimate price, in order to have free and equal rights to education and democracy too. It has been 36 years since that day in Soweto and a lot has changed in our country. A lot of people seem to have forgotten the significance of the day and it seems to have become an excuse to party for many people.

We can’t forget the importance, the sacrifices and significance of this day. A group of youths who aren’t forgetting is the iSchoolAfrica Youth Press teams. They’re creating short format videos centred around themes in SA.

For today their theme is Youth Day. Check out their videos here –> http://www.youtube.com/user/iSchoolAfricaYPT?feature=mhee

Die Antwoord release “Ten$ion” teaser

One of South Africa’s most successful exports, Die Antwoord are preparing to release their new album “Tension” next month. The capetonians, who traveled around the world performing to fans last year, released their teaser for the album yesterday. The single Yo-Landi Vi$er sings in this video is called “I Fink You Freaky” and damn I do fink dat. She’s ripping out the heart of a seemingly estranged lover in the video and then she literally smashes it in her face.

More on the record as and when it becomes available.
