A locally produced online music series promises to celebrate Mzansi artists. Vuse Inspired Live premiered on Wednesday night, 2 June.
Created by Vuse, the "Festival of Inspiration" promises to reinvent the nature of events by giving artists a platform to showcase their creativity whilst creating an engaging connection with their audiences.
The new show sees up to 40 artists across music, fashion, art and travel, collaborate to produce something unique and inspiring. Music lovers can now stream the first episode of the event.
Artists such as Kwesta, MFR Souls, Ami Faku, Kid Fonque, Shekhinah, and Da Capo, among others, are all part of the programme. While some episodes have already been filmed, others will be shot from 7 to 11 June.
In a statement, Mark Williams, Head of New Categories at British American Tobacco South Africa, said:
"Aimed at urban, creative, expressive consumers, we wanted to give artists, musicians, performers and the like a platform to inspire, curate and collaborate in a time when many don’t have a means to work."
DJ Maphorisa asks top DJs to play Amapiano
In other music news, Briefly News reported that DJ Maphorisa took to social media at the beginning of this week and asked DJ Shimza, Heavy K and Black Coffee to play Amapiano on their sets.
Phori believes that the Amapiano genre will grow even bigger if these three famous musicians played more Amapiano songs for their fans across the globe.
Shimza and Heavy K are against the star's idea. They took to his comment section on Facebook and shared their thoughts on his request. In his reply seen by Briefly News, Shimza said:
"We can’t all do the same thing because we all have different goals and paths in our careers, ma brother. You guys are doing perfectly fine without us and it’s amazing to watch from the outside! Keep going! We here to support."
Heavy K responded:
"Me I can handle both House and Amapiano, Porry. It marks 10 years of Heavy K this year and I’ll be introducing my other production strong points. It’s necessary for me. To my day-one fans, I’ll never leave you behind but allow me to experiment."
