Comedians, musicians to keep Mdantsane entertained
Music and laughter will be the order of the day when Umhlobo Wenene FMs DJ Silulami Bunu returns to his home township Mdantsane to celebrate his 31st birthday with the Music and Comedy Sundays – The Vibe at Mthombo’s Palace on Sunday.
A line-up of talented Eastern Cape comedians and musicians, including Satma-nominated Makhanda comedian Tsepiso Nzayo and upcoming comedy sensation Ludwe “Willy” Obiya, local afro-pop music sensations Odwa and Songz, is on the cards for the event which promises to be fun-filled for the township’s music and comedy lovers.
Slujah as Bunu is affectionately known, is the brains behind the event, on Sunday said Music and Comedy Nights had now changed from being hosted on Fridays, but would now be on Sundays, once a month due to his busy schedule.
“I haven’t abandoned my music and comedy night shows.
“I just did not want to divide my focus and attention as I was still trying to settle in my new job.
“I want to continue giving people quality entertainment, hence I have decided to come and celebrate my birthday with the people of my hometown,” said Bunu, who hosts the Jaiva Mzantsi show at the popular radio station on Fridays and Saturday evenings.
He said the aim of the shows was to reveal and appreciate the local comedians and musicians and provide them with a platform to showcase their talent.
Bunu will be sharing the stage with his former Mdantsane FM breakfast show co-host Yanga “Yarees” Mabokela.
“People know us as a pair and that is why I will be MC-ing with him.
“ He is the next big thing in the entertainment industry as there is so much talent in him. I believe in him, just like the many other people who believed in me.
“We need to show them love and support; it is our responsibility to boost a performer’s confidence by attending their shows,” Bunu said.
Also in the line-up for Sunday’s event will be Eastern Cape comedians Siqhazolo and Zimvo Mpahleni, while the hip hop duo of Slujah and Sobz will also share the stage with them.
The Sunday show starts at 1pm and tickets are available at R50 at Mdantsane Pick n Pay, Mdantsane FM and at Mthombo’s Palace. When you buy four tickets you get two tickets free...
