Packed with a wonderful cast of organizers that include 6:AM Entertainment, Epic Nation, Sirocco Entertainment and Mwanaume Ni Effort, this one promises to deliver quality entertainment for ravers. The madness will be contained in 2 stages i.e. Africanized Stage for the house music lovers and The Jiji Stage for urban music lovers. The line up in each of these stages consists of amazing talent and we can only wait to see which stage takes the crown as the most epic.

The main act DJ Shimza – a house music producer, radio mix DJ, Channel O mix effect master and Director of SHIMUZIC  Productions has proven to be a world class artist with his highly infectious Afro style tracks. Going by the number of competitions he’s managed to win, most notably being the Gauteng Carnival DJ Competition in 2011, he is one of the most sought after names in S.A House music today. We surely cannot wait to be graced by his outstanding talent.

So for those of you who have missed a great dance and would like to get down and beat that cold weather while at it, this will be where you need to be. Let’s get Africanized!

As They Come…

They’ve launched their attacks and they’ve come at me with what I already had in mind. They give me the pleasure of being right – how cheap they are. They’re trying to attack me with what I’m doing but I know what I’m doing. The truth hurts is for those who don’t accept it…

They make my days for sure as they provide me with the ingredients for creation. I have to love them. I wait eagerly to see how they react as I keep going. They prove their cowardice in the way they act. If only they would come directly…

They tell themselves that they do it for our own good but deep down they know very well that they are out to get something off of it. The term jealousy is not far off. Not bad my friends, not bad at all. They serve a purpose as well and I will remain forever grateful for their contribution…

I see them and I patiently wait to see who among them makes a move. Once an attack happens I proceed to make a link which then informs my reactions and actions. They keep growing in number and I thus try to stay ready as they come…

Actions and Thoughts…

He acted too fast and managed to portray an image that now seemed unlikely. He was acting with this image in mind but hadn’t really thought about it. He could see that he was responsible for the problems that ensued as other people were also added into the picture. The boundaries were drawn up and this is a testament of what went on between his actions and thoughts…

As he pressed on with his actions he moved much closer to matching the image. The only thing that was left was the confirmation but the lingering created the inquiries. He had acted in excitement and he may have managed to mislead those thoughts. The match had not yet been made and as such a slight window of opportunity to escape remained…

The other parties created the conflict as they presented better matches for him; or so he thought. The false image limits his actions with them and he thus remains on the conservative path. He was there again facing his greatest weakness; they always distracted his mind – he thought of them whether they were around or not. They are always a sight to behold, and he does not brag but the thought crosses his mind. Their names have been added to the cast and in spite of what happens or has happened between them, they will have to appreciate the time they got…

They appear before him and once his desire is turned on, he figures out a way to know and be known (He always nails those) He thought of doing something and at times he did. He loved the results but at times they left him utterly disappointed and bitter. At other times as well he refrained from acting due to one reason or the other and he remained not knowing what was possible…

There have been a lot of stories created in the past and there’re more that will continue to unfold: stories about him, stories about them and stories between and among them. They still keep coming and they without a doubt confuse him a lot. That confusion keeps him actively engaged and continues to take him to places he’s never been…

He remains grateful for the time that they give him and the knowledge that they pass on to him. He also hopes that they get a thing or two from him and that their interactions sowed a seed…
