Oskido ft. Candy - Tsa Mandebele (Kids Remix)

Something to put a smile on your face today :) 

This is an awesome music video of a bunch of South African kids at school dancing to a popular song known as 'Tsa Mandebele'. It was such a huge hit that it was celebrated as the song of the year in 2013. Off the back of its popularity the Kwaito DJ Oskida put together a version of some kids singing the song.

Prepare for some cuteness!

Reasons Why Mothers Are So Awesome

So last Sunday was Mothering Sunday. A time to call and visit your mum with lovely presents to show how much you love her. Being a mother is certainly not easy. In fact, it's super tough! Mothers take care of us when we are babies, nurture us when we are kids, and deal with our mood swings when we hit puberty. Safe to say: it's a very exhausting job. 

Here are a few reasons why mothers are so special.

Reason 1: No matter how busy she is, she will always have time for you

Reason 2: She can wash your really dirty clothes and make them look brand new!

Reason 3: Even a last minute school project can be a success because of your mum.

Reason 4: She will always want to feed you her home cooked dishes!

Reason 5: She will always remember your birthday :) 

Reason 6: When something  bad happens to you , your mum's hug is all you need to feel better.


To celebrate these wonderful ladies in our lives, I've picked an African hit song from the 70s by Prince Nico Mbarga called 'Sweet Mother'. It's ubiquitous influence is felt all across Africa and is usually played at weddings and social occasions.

So take a bow, ladies. We appreciate and love you very much.

Have a great week everyone!
