Two Khayelitsha youth are appealing to anyone who has any kind of talent to join their talent jam sessions happening at Site B, every Tuesday.

The young men Masakhe Ntsini (28) and Yoneliseka Fetile (21) said they have been organising the EKaya Jam Sessions for three weeks. The sessions are mostly attended by musicians and poets.

Ntsini said he always wanted to have these kinds of sessions in his area but he never took the initiative.

“It has always been an idea of mine to have these talent sessions for youth from my area but I never did anything about it until now,” said Ntsini.

The sessions are held in public with minimal equipment.

Ntsini said they borrow everything from the people.

Ntsini said young people from his area have nothing to do with their spare time and they end up doing bad things.

“There is a lot of talent in the area but we do not have a place to showcase it which is why I decided to have the Talent Jam Sessions so we can have a place to express our talents,” he said.

Fetile said they get a lot of support from the community because they come out in numbers to attend.

He added that a lot of parents are also happy with what they do because they know their children are safe.

Abahlobo Boqobo, an acapella group from the area, entertained the crowd. They received resounding cheers.

Group member Lathitha Matikinca (16) said the sessions are very important to them because a lot of people do not know that they possess music skills.

He said the sessions also encourage others to come forward and showcase their skills and they get a lot of support from the crowd.

Ntsini appealed to anyone who can help in any way to contact them on 078 882 8164 or on their Facebook page EKaya Jam Sessions.
