El Mukuka is lost, and if you are too, listen to this!

He's one of the most prolific producers and Dj's of the time, soaring high and playing at some of the biggest festivals the world over, and then, lockdown happened.
The Greek / Zambian artist has long been a favourite on Jacaranda Fm, and nothing seems to be changing!

With his latest offering 'Lost' in he colabs with the incredible Adekunle Gold in a thought provoking, sad but uplifting song! Having recently signed to Ultra records, EL Mukuka is set to take over the word - as soon as he can, and we are ready!

You aren't celebrating yourself enough!

In a recent article I read from the Harvard Review, they talk about the 'power' of small wins.

The Power of small wins - that made me think long and hard about the use of the word 'power' in that context and, I have to admit that small wins, are indeed powerful.

From the 1kg scale victory to the making of the bed, the small wins are the ones that hold the most power over whether the good habits are formed or the not-so-good ones remain, and I think we should be celebrating them! You should be celebrating you much, much more!

Sarah Robyn Farrell has love in her heart!

Sarah Robyn Farrell is many things – a musician, an eco-communicator, a writer, and an activist.
Her debut single, ‘Love in our Hearts’, certainly aims to heal the world from its many issues in the most simple and honest way.

Armed with a ukulele and a strong will to use her voice for good, Sarah explains the motivation behind this, her first single:

"Love in our hearts’ is about recognising our shared humanity in a time of increasing social tension and ecological decay,” says Sarah. “It speaks to the fact that most people have a lot to unlearn, while still having the ability to love, and to change. It also speaks to the fact that ‘love’ as we currently understand it, may need to be redefined to include aspects and ideas that can lead to real positive change. This kind of revolutionary love could help us save ourselves and restore our home planet.”

“Every student is worthy of being celebrated.” These designers sew pride for matriculants

The hall is decorated with bright streamers. Pop music fills the room, beckoning people to dance. Young students adorned in custom-made gowns take the hand of their well-dressed dates.
In South Africa, a matric dance is the first time many pupils are made to feel special. But not all can afford the occasion. This was apparent to design duo Fagin Hardine and Adri Andrews of Paarl. Wanting to provide for the youth of their community, they decided to honour the final-year students in style.

Hardine and Andrews founded their clothing brand, Ke’lab, in 2017. After noticing a number of matriculants were unable to purchase their own outfits, the small business joined forces with The Giving Hand to establish The Matric Drive. “By designing for these students, we’re able to create beautiful and long-lasting memories,” Hardine says. Sketching, stitching, and hemming away, the team gifted garments to hard-working matriculants. “It’s more than just a gown,” Andrews says. “It’s a celebration of academic achievement.”

Indian-born, SA-raised actress Ayushi Chhabra on her new book

Ayushi was born in India but spent her childhood in Nigeria and moved to South Africa with her family at the age of 13.
After growing up near the East Rand of Johannesburg, she moved to LA, and the rest, is history!

The year 2020 saw Ayushi making her American television debut, as the alien character “PEL” on CBS’s TV series – ‘STAR TREK : PICARD’, alongside Sir Patrick Stewart and Allison Pill. Chhabra's role in the first season of the show was a major departure from previous work and required her to go through hours of intense hair and make-up to transform her into the character of a pregnant Romulan (alien).
