There is no better time than the present – the realest operate on the here, and now.
That’s the mantra.
And might I add that no province embodies the idea far better than Eastern Cape – a place of here and now and nothing else.
Anyway, before I become somewhat of a philosopher, let’s jump straight into it – the launch!
The #Umgqibelo music video launch, hosted on a Sunday, had us crazy like we had no church in the morning. I utterly enjoyed the scene, the space, and of course the people.
Lwaistar, EezyThaDon, and the whole OTE squad evidently pulled all the stops to host an invite only, and hella sophisticated event last Sunday. Let me tell you, there were drinks and food as well – what beats that?
The event was supposed to have started at 18:00, I don’t think anyone seem to notice that we were pushing Sasafrican time – the place had already been set with a scene, accompanied by background music that allowed only a chill session.
After enough drinks, nom’minglisho – the night was handed back to its makers – Eezy and Lwaistar. On the floor like a 3rd grader, I sat – grinding my teeth in anticipation, and then…
Waze wam’nand’ Umgqibeloooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
The vid’ hit the screen, and all eyes stayed glued. The visuals were on another – opening with an upside down frame of Jozi. And of course the duo represented #ECHipHop, they rose to the occasion.
To sum it up, if you weren’t there – you missed out on life things!
But here you go..
