Local artists to rock at Conference

2016-07-05 06:00

THE Robin Hood Foundation are taking giving to a new level and are hosting another free, world-class entrepreneurial conference for aspirant and existing entrepreneurs at City Hill Church, Hillcrest on the 12 and 13 July.

The Entrepreneurs 4 Africa Conference will train, develop, equip and inspire up to 1000 delegates and is open to all men, women and races, on the critical aspects of entrepreneurship with knowledge, skills and advice in a jam-packed, two day event.

Among the top class speakers, there are some awesome entertainers:

Hailing from Empangeni in the heart of Zululand, David “Qadasi” Jenkins and Maqhinga Radebe are an acoustic duo on a quest to revive the powerful sounds of traditional Maskandi music. Both Sama and Sathma Award nominees in their own right, the duo have taken their fusion of traditional Zulu and western folk music to audiences in the UK, Ireland, Asia and throughout South Africa, and recently released their long awaited collaborative album titled, “Lashis’ Ilanga”.

In the male dominated arena of SA music, Holly Wasserfall has already proved she packs a punch, one that has as much musical power as any of her male counterparts. The name, Holly, is known in every township in KZN and her popularity is spreading across South Africa. From Umlazi to Kwamashu, Inanda to Folweni and Sweetwater to Richmond, she is known for crowd rocking stage performances and is hailed, as the most loved White Girl in the Kasi. She is affectionately known as “Umlungu weHouse”. Although challenging the stereotypes and norms of the house music market, the South African house music community and its audiences have embraced her.

Founder of The Robin Hood Foundation, Cindy Norcott, says: “The aim is to host not just a conference, but an event that the delegates will leave upskilled but also inspired and motivated”
