There are two African-American women who have been on the arts radar recently--Misty Copeland and Keke Palmer. I've been following Keke Palmer since my parents introduced me to the movie Akeelah and the Bee seven years ago. She was refreshing and zesty with the right kind of sass. At the same time, she reminded me that an actress like her was an oddity in arts today. African-American, young, female and ambitious. A lethal combination of brains and beauty, Keke Palmer is taking Broa...

In South Africa, music is and always has been a form of escape for most of the young people, especially those from disadvantaged communities, from the harsh realities of the lives that they are living and it is through music that most of the young South Africans are able to realize their dreams live their passions.

Why Michael Jackson changed his skin colour? It has always been a mystery to me why Michael Jackson, King of Pop, changed his skin from black to white.

Michael Jackson, an American actor, businessman, dancer, producer, singer and philanthropist, was said to have surpassed even Elvis Presl...

So, my last post was actually about hearing the young one's speak. This article has a lot to do with it actually. Charice Pempengo, is not a stranger to us. A was a young girl from humble beginnings and had a lot of talent. She had a beautiful voice and sang in the likes of Celine Deon, one of her greatest idols. She didn't have a good childhood. I'm quite certain she was waiting for her chance to be heard. When her voice was heard by David Foster alongside with Oprah Winfrey, he...

Tap, tap, tap. You can’t help yourself; inadvertently you start to bob your head, tap your fingers on the closest surface. You turn up the volume. What an awesome song you think, the beat just makes you want to dance. You quickly shazam it to check the name and the artist. And then the inevitable happens; you begin paying attention to the lyrics and you’re not impressed (and that’s putting it lightly). You know what lyrics I’m talking about – they’re usually s...
