NOW in its fifth year, the Msinga Driftkhana car-spinning event has developed into far more than just that - it has become a catalyst for many spin-offs benefitting local schools and a business project which employs 45 workers. Event founder and Msinga businessman Smango Mabaso states that the area is well known for its history of political and taxi violence, but the Driftkana is aimed at changing that narrative.

To be held on 29 October, the focus is on youth development with two young beneficiaries in particular, Mfundo “La Saint” Mthiyane and Qiniso Mabaso who have joined the event management team to showcase their talent.

Mfundo is a Durban graphic designer and photographer. Although he studied PC engineering, his passion is more aligned to the creative arts. He is responsible for all the graphic design and marketing material for the event and says that the Msinga Driftkhana project has pushed him out of his comfort zone.

“Car spinning wasn’t something you would look at as a sport so the Driftkhana showed me that anything is possible and it has helped me broaden my business and has opened up so many opportunities for me,” he said.

Also involved is Qiniso Mabaso, who was born in the Msinga area. Qiniso is a graduate in management.

Msinga DriftKhana has partnered with iQiniso Education Foundation, which undertakes community outreach programmes. The organisation has collected sanitary towels for underprivileged girls in school and helped pupils by hosting career guidance programmes to assist them with career choices. The organisation also provides food parcels to needy families.

There will be lots of activities at the Msinga DriftKhana and a pre- and after party over the weekend. General access tickets range from R50 for children under 12 to R100 for adults and R500 for VIP. A private lounge option is available for R1 500 and a VVIP suite is R15 000.
