Firstly, welcome to May 2013. Man oh man, this year is flying. I’ve got a lot of things I need to do before we wrap up the first half of the year… I’m sure you do too, so get it going.
Right, back to the post. I’ve been listening to Snoop Lion‘s new material, Reincarnated. It’s not a typical Snoop album, you know the hip-hop vibe. Instead Snoop has taken it to Jamaica, explored his spiritual Rastafarian side and his reggae side. Let me tell you, it’s good. I’m downloaded a few of the tracks from the album off iTunes and I’m getting ready to complete the album. Check out the interview above. It’s great and will give you a better understanding about where Snoop is in his life and what’s next for Snoop.
Snoop is heading out to SA later this month to take back in the MTV Base Africa All Stars. He’ll be headlining the show, but there are a whole host of other massive names sharing the stage with Snoop including Fally Ipupa, Professor, 2Face, Zakes Bantwini and many many more. They’ll be in KwaZulu-Natal, so be sure to get your tickets from computicket.com
This weekend the search to find the new Miss South Africa continues, as the nationwide search comes to Gauteng. The auditions take place at Carnival City out in Brakpan and so if you think you have what it takes to be the next Miss South Africa, then be sure to get on down there. Warning though, it wont be an issue ride. You’ll have to impress judges Sonia Raciti-Oshry, Sonia Sedibe and Kieno Kammies… but they’re not the only ones. Radio and TV personalities, Robert Marawa and Anele Mdoda join the panel and celebrity judges for this round.
If there’s one quote that sticks out in my mind, it’s Anele’s Twitter bio: “Be as interested as you are interesting.” and so if you’re auditioning this weekend, be sure to follow this wisdom
Should you make it through to the next round, you’ll join 33 other hopefuls at the Wild Coast Sun in KwaZulu-Natal for a series of workshops, set to take place between the 3rd and the 9th of September. During the workshops the girls will participate in workshops involving communication, elocution, make-up and hair, ramp modelling, health and fitness, and financial planning. They’ll then be put to the test with a bunch of tasks and the field will be narrowed down accordingly. 16 will make it through to the next round, but only 12 will make to the pageant stage, which is set to take place on the 9th of December at the Sun City Superbowl. You can catch the show on Mzansi Magic, DStv channel 107. For more information check out the official Miss SA site.
