The SA Sports Awards took place the Sandton Convention Centre on Sunday. I was on the red carpet interviewing some of the biggest names in the game and while I waited for my chance, I snapped a few pics of the stars in attendance. Check out the gallery below and check back in for video interviews coming this week.
One of my favourite artists is back in South Africa. If you don’t know who I’m talking about, it’s Mr. John Legend. The star will perform at a Women’s Day Concert, alongside Unathi Msengana and MiCasa at the Sandton Convention Centre tomorrow night. Holding down the MC duties will be the lovely Minnie Dlamini. If you haven’t got your tickets, askies, shem. You can catch him on Idols on Sunday evening then.
Earlier I went through to a press conference with the star. He’d just arrived in the country, so naturally he was a little tired. We were therefore limited to 15 questions (give or take) and a total of 13 minutes according to my video footage. So it wasn’t long at all, but we did get to hear about his new album, his Women’s Day message, on being back in SA and more. Check out some of the highlights from the presser earlier. I’ll have more on his and Unathi’s thoughts on being involved with SA Idol on Monday, so stay tuned for that.
In case you missed the news the awesome John Legend is heading back to Mzansi this August. The star is heading out as part of a Woman’s Day concert to be held at the Sandton Convention Centre on the 10th of August. Legend will be sharing the stage with the lovely Unathi Msengana and SAMA winners MiCasa. The event’s host will be the lovely Minnie Dlamini.
Honestly, this might be dedicated to the ladies, but damn with a lineup like this, I’m super stoked. Legend is one of my favourite artists ever and I’m being dead serious about that. Unathi is just the bomb. I’ve known her for many years now and she’s just so great. As for the trio that is MiCasa? Well la la la la la, La Vida… These guys are the shit!
