This Friday the Hennessy Artistry Halo Concert returns for a fifth year. The artists involved in this year’s campaign are but awesome. The list includes Zakwe, The Arrows, Bucie, AKA, of which all of them got to work with one of the SA’s most celebrated musical directors and composers, Caiphus Semenya. Throwing in his DJ skills and final touches to this production is one of my favourite DJs, DJ Kent.
Bucie, AKA, The Arrows and Zakwe will all be in attendance to perform the track and be apart of the massive party. It’s all going down this Friday at Hush in Rosebank, Johannesburg. Doors open at 20:00 and general admission tickets are on sale at Computicket.

One week to go until the annual South African Music Awards takes place. The awards are back at their rightful home of Sun City this year and it’s going to be epic! I’ll be heading through on Sunday for the first night of awards. These will be for the technical and non-televised awards. While these winners wont be on your TV screens, they still deserve a shout out for the work they have contributed to the music industry in the past year, so I will be bringing you all that news.
As far as the Monday night, live broadcast goes things are still very under wraps. We don’t know who the hosts will be (Bonang and Trevor Gumbi would be my first choice) and who will be performing, but I’m pretty sure we can expect the likes of Zahara, Zakwe, MiCasa among others to take to the stage. There will be a big fashion show at Sun City too and obviously there will be loads of other news coming out of SA’s big musical night, so stay tuned. For now, check out my interview with Lira about her nominations:
More interviews to follow this week.
