~father of the Nation

It is with great sadness that I pen this post. As the world bids farewell to one of the greatest men to ever walk on earth.

I’m taken aback. Reliving those delicate,sound and heavy moments of this country’s history. Tata Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela,has passed on…

An advocate of Change. A man who went deep in the mud for the liberation of this country. One of the Legends who have veered and drove this country to what it is today.

Living in post apartheid South Africa is one gift no commodity can purchase. Such tremendous impact that allows one to be liberated,within one’s country. An impact that makes one take full pride in one’s origin!

Somber as the atmosphere is,the life of such a Legend will be celebrated!

It smells like liberty. Freedom at last. And for the endless efforts of great legends like: Sisulu,Tambo ,Mandela and the MANY other heros,great echoes of gratitude will forever reside in our hearts.

“We are fighting for a society where people will cease
thinking in terms of colour.” -Nelson Mandela (March 8, 1993)

A man who publicly and fearlessly took a stance against Apartheid. Sentenced for a heavy 27years in prison for Treason.
With that, of course, came the greatest sacrifice,putting one’s life at great risk-death that is.

If there’s anyone who knows how hope looks like it is Tata. He held on,with no guarantee,he held on. Such bravery and ideal sacrifice can never be repaid.

It is men of such caliber. Fearless and carved with immense distinction,whose impact I cannot even decipher. It is for this reason,that I take full pride in them!

For us,born frees,we pride ourselves in you. Your works,what you stand for and your name that has made an imprint in our hearts

The African drums don’t stop beating,eternally they’ll celebrate your life. They’ll leave imprints. The blossoming of the flaura, the rich fauna…our fertile African Soil will not forget your footsteps,your traces. So long…


“When a man has done what he considers to be his
duty to his people and his country, he can rest in

-Nelson Mandela 1918-2013.


A born-free


Our 2013 Idols South Africa season9 winner

“The world is your Oyster,”words that kept echoing whilst feasting the talent that is Musa Sekwene.

In a green golf T-shirt —charismatic Musa from eMalahleni in Mpumalanga —made his first Idols SA audition. An enchanting audition that paved him to far greater heights.

Watch him,see him lift his hands and smoke the mass off with his voice!


The 9th Season of Idols SA has seen and graced us with the crème de la crème of singers. A series of close calls. One of the seasons that sure did unearth the strongest contenders.

Following a Talent-fest,Musa Sekwene’s singing saw him in the top 10. Note after Note he delivered. The unprecedented pressure that comes with every week’s performance means that one cannot afford to serve bread crumbs, ever! A trait that Musa heavily possesses!

Throughout the season,we’ve seen him deliver worthy performances. The magnitude of his voice I cannot even fathom. He sealed every performance with a genuine touch.

Not to sideline the strong contenders that were gunning for the No.1 title too. From the fierce ladies that held a very good fight, to the gentlemen who seized the moment and gave stellar performances as well.


Far beyond the chants and encores from the crowd lies a subliminal moment of silence commanded by genuine talent !

You swept us off our feet,gave us what our ears have been yearning for. And for that, the mass— your fans,came out for you ,in numbers larger than Life!

And for 10 consecutive weeks,they voted!
Stuck to their fave .Loyal fans,who felt the nerves with you. Cheered for you. Worry together with you . And celebrated you!


Good music breaks the shackles of society. It speaks for itself. Your voice and performances conveyed that. They broke constraint. And reached people of all walks of life.

A broad market awaits you Musa, ready to consume, feast and blast your music. Keep soaring!

Savor the moment! It’s all yours. And to the world, Brace! Watch him soar. Live the talent that is you— Musa Sekwene our Idol!
