Come With Me

No one knows how to make my year the way my favorite band, The Muffinz, does! When you say yes to an invitation to see these guys live, you’re really saying yes to an entire experience, an adventure to a corner of Joburg you have not yet explored.

This Saturday I found myself at Lebo’s Soweto Backpackers. This spot is typically a tourist destination but the locals filled it up for some good music and good vibes!

My friends and I grabbed a blanket and camping chairs and planted ourselves for the day in front of the stage, and my band did not disappoint! We danced and talked and laughed and left at a decent hour.

A light-filled spiritual experience that was filled with song, dance, and community. An evening of pure bliss and lighthearted moments between friends and strangers. – Thulisile Lange

Im not going to lie to you, guys! I don’t have much to say about the venue. Touristy places don’t really appeal to me and a township is not a place I want to tour. People live there – no! But if you are from out of town or country, try the place out!

Thank you for popping in! Have an awesome week😘

Train

Happy Wednesday, dear readers!

I’m so happy to see new followers joining us! Just this month, 6 new followers got on board! Welcome, you guys!!

Sometimes music comes along at the right moment with the exact words of encouragement you need to get you through your day and ultimately through your struggle.

Don’t stop this train

Don’t for a minute change the place you’re in. – John Mayer

I love the way John Mayer weaves words together and I especially love how he writes what’s on my mind and what’s in my heart – this man gets me!

I got really frustrated on Monday: I had my playlist ready for my drive to work and technology just wouldn’t work with me! Grrr!

The good news is, my favourite John Mayer CD was waiting to pick up the slack! John reminded me on my drive to work that I’m exactly where I need to be in my life!

So whatever you’re going through right now, don’t stop this train because as far as trains go, and even life itself, it keeps moving, it passes through all the stations of life! It’s only tough for now but better days are coming, I promise!

If you’re curious about this jam, have a listen to Stop This Train and have yourself an awesome day! Thanks for popping in😘

Summer Jam

Happy Wednesday erbody! I hope this week has been good to you! My first MC gig went very well! I had so much fun and look forward to doing it again! Today was the first day of school with all the students there. It was a pretty smooth day considering🤔

It’s still summer over in South Africa even though we are all back at work. While we can’t enjoy a time of rest and long lazy days doing nothing, we still have the heat, afternoon thunderstorms (in Johannesburg) and summer music that reminds us of a summer gone by!

Today, I’d like to share my favourite jam at the moment. I have my ex to thank for my appreciation for house music. He used to compile and release mixtapes of house and African music and because I was being supportive, I would download these mixtapes and listen to them intently. SMH, the things we do for love are so silly sometimes, lol! We have since parted ways, but my appreciation for this genre of music has remained!

I love Black Coffee sooo much, guys! Not only does he put together great music and is world renowned, he has not forgotten his homeland. He has perfected the balance of working overseas with big names and coming home to do small gigs in smaller cities. I have a great deal of respect for his work ethic!

I enjoyed this jam for it’s lyrical offering. The words are very engaging speaking of a love the writer is trying to escape and is finding difficulty to do so. Also, Delilah Montagu’s vocal delivery is amazing! I love a smooth husky voice on any track! In this life or the next, I would love to be a vocal sensation like her on a house track, so if you know a guy that can hook me me up, then please, let a girl know!

Thank so much for popping in! It’s always a pleasure to have you here. I’d love to hear what your favourite jams are at the moment so please comment below and share the music! Have a great week😘

Lyrical Challenge – Day 2

I’m back! Wow, OJ didn’t tell me how tough it is to choose just one song to share! That problem comes with being a word lover, I suppose. I hope you’ve checked out her cool blog though🙂. And I hope you are enjoying these posts as much as I am😊

A quick recap; the Lyrical Challenge works as follows:

1. Thank the person who nominated you,

2. Share your favourite song/lyrics,

3. Nominate 3 other bloggers

So, today, I picked lyrics from a song by Davido. It’s in Nigerian Pidgin, I think. Anyway, he describes a woman I’d like to be: an attractive woman with no interest in material things and chases after his heart. Love really does boil down to two people who want to be together. The rest is just decorative!

Aye by Davido
Cause you want my love o
She no want designer
She no want Ferarri
She say na my love o
You belong to meee
And I belong to her o
Oh babyyy!
You go killie somebody
They say love is blind
But I dey see am for your eyes o (o ee aa)

My nominations for today:

Afro Chic

SkyLarity

Almandyne

I hope you’re having a beautiful weekend😘

Lyrical Challenge – Day 1

Afternoon Everyone!

As you know, Twitter is where cool things live and the 3 day Lyrical Challenge is no different! I couldn’t wait for Sunday so I thought I would start today until Sunday!

I had to be part of this, so I got myself challenged by OJ’s Pride. She has a great blog, you should check it out! Thanks so much for this opportunity, OJ!

So the rules to The Lyrical Challenge are simple:

1. Thank the person who nominated you,

2. Share your favourite song/lyrics,

3. Nominate 3 other bloggers.

Ok, let’s do this! My first song is actually an interlude so it’s short:

Newer Balance (freestyle) by Jhenè Aiko
I don’t need no other guy
Ever since you caught my eye
Oh you’re the only one I see
The only one that’s for me, my baby
And it would really be a shame
If you are just running game on me
Oh, baby please, baby please tell me it ain’t so, oh no
I got a strange feeling
That maybe I am dealing with a smooth player
Ooh, I’m praying

That you are who you are saying
Hope you are who you are saying

My 3 nominations are:

Beaton

Nshami14

Tina

Thanks for reading 🙂 I’ll be back with a new song tomorrow!

My Stupid Mouth

My favourite thing about John Mayer is his ability to explain situations in a simple yet profound way, a way that explains quite perfectly how I feel and where I’ve been. Here’s an example:

I’m never speaking up again it only hurts me.

I’d rather be a mystery than she dessert me

Oh, I’m never speaking up again

Starting now…

 One more thing!

Why is it my fault?

So maybe I try too hard

But it’s all because of this desire

I just wanna be liked

Just wanna be funny

Looks like the joke’s on me…

You see? Perfect perfect explanation…
