Karizma Events is excited to be celebrating its 2nd Annual Woman’s Event this year on the 9th of August at Morula Sun Pretoria. With an amazing line up that includes the international RnB crooner Kenny Lattimore, as well as BET nominee, SAMA nominee & Metro FM Awards winner Donald. Both these crooners will be serenading women on Women’s Day.
Kenny Lattimore is known for his songs: Never Too Busy, For You, If I Lose My Woman, Love Will Find a way – and will be releasing his album “Back 2 Cool” early next year. He has featured powerhouse female artists; Lalah Hathaway and Kelly Price on this well anticipated release. Donald a top South African male artist, whose talents are recognised beyond our borders, is consistant and never let’s his fans down. The hit singles from his album “Train of Love”; In Denial, Over The Moon, Your Joy and I Deserve have taken South Africa and Africa by storm. With a BET nomination in hand, Donald is ready to take his career to the next level, and sharing the stage with Kenny Lattimore is just the begining. With the artists having met at the BET awards in Los Angeles last month, we hope they work together in the near future.
The amazing female artists sharing the stage with Donald and Kenny Lattimore at this event are; Thandiswa Mazwai, Moneoa and Berita. These female artists understand that this day commemorates women who participated in a national march petitioned against pass laws. Women throughout South Africa put their names to these petitions indicating their anger and frustration at having their freedom of movement restricted by the official passes.
To conclude the Women’s March, the women sang freedom songs such as Nkosi sikeleli Afrika, however, the song that became the anthem of the march was “Wathint’ aba-fazi, Strijdom!” Wathint’abafazi, wathint’imbokodo, uza kufa! When you strike the women ,you strike a rock, you will be crushed [you will die]!
The march was a resounding success and South Africa recognises the bravery of these women who risked arrest, detention and banning by declaring 9 August National Women’s Day.
