Mentorship Programme for Young Songwriters

27 posts

The Jakes Gerwel Foundation and the Suidoosterfees offer a mentorship programme for singers and songwriters who create original hit songs in Afrikaans, English, or isiXhosa. For this programme, we are specifically looking for young artists who can benefit from the experience and guidance of a mentor to develop popular new lyrics and songs. After completion of the programme, the participants will perform in a production at the Suidoosterfees in Cape Town to showcase their talents. Frazer Barry and Zolani Mahola are the mentors.

Getting ready for a new time

So now I am getting ready for a new time, where nothing will be the same as before. A time in which I hope the music will make you and me feel something really good and will keep us hopeful that together we can continue to bring about positive change through our shared talents.
