Unforeseen circumstances will always have a way of disturbing the environment and the atmosphere at large, Buffalo City Metro citizens were excited about having a music festival during the Easter long weekend but it didn’t materialise and it was postponed to take place today but the event organisers sent a statement to apologise to the public at large stating that the event is postponed again due to bad weather reports over this weekend. The event thanked their stakeholders for the support in ensuring the success of this event even though it is still in a facade to be staged once the date has been announced.

The organisers also extended an apology to ticket holders for spoiling their hopes and anticipation about the event. They further stated that the event is about the best in entertainment not compromising safety of patrons. It is said to see this happening over and over again does this mean Buffalo City is not ready to host an event during this time of the year and three events that were scheduled for the same period previously also failed to be staged to the circumstances.

By the time of publishing this article we tried to contact the organisers but their number were off.

They say time promotes, upholds, and most importantly tells who was in it for popularity, long haul or who in actual fact responded to his calling and purpose in life. The work that Bandile Magibili has engaged himself in all these years (spanning over a decade) proves beyond a shadow of a doubt his work is purely vocational.

IMG-20160409-WA0022

Born in the hills and valleys of Sterkspruit on the fringes of the Eastern Cape Bandile has proven to be a rose rising and growing from a rock. He is counted amongst the giants in the province who continually redefines the outlook of the province visual (art) and otherwise. He is a complete artist whose work most notable spreads from visual communication, a self-published author, a poet and an event co-coordinator.

Through his efforts and platforms he has provided a stage for the likes of Zahara, Yahkeem, Lebo Mashile, Mak Manaka, Ntsiki Mazwai and other notable South African uncontainable talents. Through the work that he has begun with 2 B Black a highly critical and sharp book-artwork that seeks to articulate a life of a marginalized art practitioner who has his work displayed everywhere yet remains an ostracized layman by the name of Hastings Mqhayi, he continues to engage with the diaspora.

Magibili presented lectures in England and now he just represented the Eastern Cape in Amsterdam at the Annual Festival Voor Het Afrikaans which took place on the 8 April – 10 April. His accommodation and flights were respectively sponsored by the Eastern Cape Provincial Arts and Culture Council (ECPACC) and Buffalo City Metropolitan Municipality with Joe Gqabi District Municipality funding in country expenses such as meals and transportation in Amsterdam.

Magibili expressed himself by saying – “now, that so many government institutions have supported me on my trip. I know that they are aware of my exceptional talents and skills as a result I am sure that my artistic image will be able to assist growth and development particularly in youth”. He further explain that Dutch welcomed with warm arms during his stay in Netherlands.

By the time we had the conversation with Mr Magibili he was on his way back to the country expected to land in South Africa this coming weekend. It is never too late to support local artists by buying their merchandise, music and most importantly purchasing tickets to their shows. Make your contribution today.
