Major League complains on lack of Government support

Published

on

Major League call out for help from the Government and local municipalities to support and aid them in their Bi-Annual Major League Gardens Event which is packed to the rafters without fail every time. The twin duo’s frustration stems from the fact that the local Gauteng or Polokwane municipalities never support them even after investing in the cities and promoting a positive public image of the city. They claim that “Johannesburg, one of the biggest social event across South Africa. We bring the youth together in it numbers (Thousands) come hail or snow…literally. Not once has any government department or anyone of sorted supported us.”

They continued to tweet that they will keep doing their thing without the aid and support of local governments, “Anyway we going to rock. With or without support. Numbers don’t lie. And our people don’t too. And there again. Support doesn’t mean monetary value. But support with state infrastructure, JOC, JMPD etc…..”

Do you think that local governments should invest more in their local events and this kind of entrepreneurship? Will the inclusion of the local municipalities improve the nature of the events? We would like to hear what you have to say.

Top five Idols Give It Their All

Published

Nosipho bows out of Idols after a nod from Matthew Knowles.

After 11 million votes over the past week, the Top Five contenders for the SA Idols crown have been announced – and Nosipho is not be among them. The 18-year-old took her final bow after getting the least votes; but not before receiving a vote of confidence from none other than Beyoncé’s dad and Destiny’s Child architect Matthew Knowles, who was a guest judge on tonight’s show.

Those left performed two songs each under the theme How It Should Have Been Done. The contestants took butchered songs by Wooden Mic contenders and showed Mzansi how they should have been done.

First up was Thando, who sang Jennifer Hudson’s Spotlight and Weakness In Me by Keisha White. Randall felt the “depth of feeling” was going to keep her in the competition for at least another week. Unathi called her performances bright and luminescent. Somizi and Matthew advised her to bring more energy into her performance instead of relying only on her pipes.

Niyaaz took a swing at Sam Smith’s Too Good At Goodbyes and Robin Thicke’s Lost Without You. Unathi said she would “love” for someone to sing at her like that every day; Matthew said he’d chosen great songs; Somizi enjoyed himself and Randall said the only thing Niyaaz had to think about was how to pick up the votes from fans of the fallen Idols.

Singing a Beyonce song in front of the man who “made” her must have been nerve-wrecking, but King B got a thumbs up from Matthew for his rendition of Irreplaceable. He also chose Say Something by A Great Big World. Randall offered up some advice along with praises. “There are performances when I think you can win this, and others where you’ve let me down. Consistency at this stage is critical,” he cautioned.
Yanga, whom all the judges predicted would be in the final two, chose What Is Love by the Empire cast and Whitney Houston’s eternal I Will Always Love You. “That was unbelievably beautiful,” proclaimed Somizi. Randall praised her song choices and her “fantastic” interpretation of Whitney’s ever-green classic. “You were a star!” declared Matthew.

Bringing the show to an end was Thato, who seems to be blossoming at just the right time. The judges unanimously declared him the winner of the first round after his performance of The Soil’s Inkomo. He followed it with Imibuzo by Nathi, which brought out profuse praise from Randall. “You are the one performer who sees beyond this competition, and you’ve got the biggest smile of all the contestants.” Unathi said she was imagining his name being called out at a festival, while Somizi said he was memorable.

Now that the number of contestants can be counted on one hand, the heat is seriously on. Fans have their work cut out for them as they fight for their faves to stay in the race.
