The home coming festival organised by our Daddy Max of Maxis lifestyle – and black coffee for me, was the epitome of the weekend. It was like bekuholwa iqolo on the Umlazi Highway, as thousands of black coffee fans came out in numbers to celebrate his Home coming. From all corners of South Africa. Uyibekile Induku ebandla. Abathandi bomunandi were treated to their monies worth with an all star line up which included the cream of entertainment industry namely Durban’s Finest (Tira & Sox), DJ bongs – ncoh uncle yami – ncoh. Spectacular and Naves, Happygal (my applemunch) Joocy, Cndo, Lvovo, Zakwe, King Sfiso, Twitty – and many others led by our energetic and varied combination of MCs – Somgaga – Somizi Mhlongo, Ukhozi FMs Tshatha and Oros & Slot.

I wonder who was performing in other events as all packed Maxis VIP lounge.

The man of the night Nkosinathi – popularly known as Black coffee positioned himself as headline act with his set which saw even ibhimbi lokugcina lishaya noma okusathwalaza and ladies screeching whatever voice left in appreciation. Bhuti wami – your spiritual connection to how you play transcends in the souls of everyone. Your style and attention to detail is seen in the way you play. Ngizithole I camera isi shoot phansi taken away, by your ability to fuse music so intricately – paying attention to the varied tones and dynamics of your set. Washo ubhuti Sfiso wathi kulungile baba. May his soul rest in peace.

Each artist/musician complemented another as if it were a competition. Daddy Max, your choice must be applauded. Babes wodumo you have earned your title, hhayi Sisi uyajujuma. Kodwa ke – don’t forget that you have dancers onstage to support you. For a moment I thought you were but only a dancer,  as you deserted your microphone whilst track  playing – kodwa ungaculi. You are a born performer, invest in ensuring that it is overall. Mastery is a challenge, however attainable. Ma Mpintsha knows what I’m talking about. Yourls synergy on that stage showed us so much more. Awuthi ngithule. (Ezikhuza)

U van damn uwile wathi bhu.

Intombi Yes’godi isukuma nokubonga abadidiyeyi bomcimbi, abaxhasi – as ubesezingeni elincomekayo kakhulu. Kanye nempatho. The MCs for the night also complemented each other very well as they offered different dynamics – Somizi Mhlongo, your fluid and sincere drama was so necessary, tshatha – (clearing throat) and Oros & Slot; so relevant. I started to dwell on unpure thoughts of yourls combination lost in a remote island, and my thoughts fascinated me. Any who angithule.

King Sfiso, Zakwe, Cndo, Dj happygal and DJ Tira & Sox, the experience over the years manifested itself in your performance. Play on.

Onontandakubukwa base ethekwini engeke ngisabasho ngama gama, hhayi ngiyali dabukela iqolo. This year it seems to be the only body part ebuthwele ubunzima. Hhaybo liqotsisiwe bo!

If its uniq. We are there!
