A new music video for Joe Moth

Sensational Cosmo City Hip-hop artiste Joe Moth will release a new music video for his single “Only Your Love” on 13 0ctober.

The 25-year-old Joe told Cosmo City Chronicle that he had been working on the video for the past weeks. The video was shot by Pilot Films, a famous company which has shot great videos of South African musicians such as Babes Wodumo, DJ Kent, Donald, KO and many more. The video is expected to be aired on big music TV stations like Channel O, MTV and Trace.

Born John Mothemane, the singer rose to fame in 2015 and he is a two time Ngoma Gospel awards nominee. He stormed into the music scene as a hip-hop gospel artiste. His love for mainstream hip-hop grew and he switched genres. He has released five singles and one EP so far. Throughout his career, Joe Moth has performed alongside the likes of Thebe, Dr Malinga, Chomee, Nokwazi and Busiswa.

The song “Only Your Love”featureing Calvin Mayer was produced by Dave la Decks and is a blend of Pop/Dance beats, with a mixture of English lyrics.

“After seeing more than one thousand people buying my music, I decided not to look back,” Moth said in an interview with Cosmo City Chronicle. “The new music video has a special message behind it, and I think from time to time people just  need to hear words that help them get back up when they are down. It has a straightforward, clean and peaceful message without any swearing.”

He added that he wants to work with Sketchy Bongo and Shekinah in the near future because they play the same type of music.

“I think the people who have been working with me on my song and video have opened many doors for me,” added Joe. “They have inspired me more into my dreams. This new

video will bring potential growth for me.  It’s all about growth, going international with my sound.”

Joe Moth also runs Moth Entertainment, a company which focuses on comedy, acting, MCing and TV presenting. Joe Moth is also a fashion lover and he recently partnered with Ayesha M Designing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wakhe Sebenza leaves Cosmo FM

No more midday magazine show for Wakhe Sebenza on Cosmo FM as the well-liked voice on radio in Cosmo City is ready for bigger plans.

Sebenza said goodbye to his Cosmo FM listeners on 5 October, after working for the local radio station for more than one year. He hosted the magazine show Midday Delights from 12:00 to 15:00 weekdays. Sebenza’s show catered for men and women as a content driven programme which focused on current affairs and health, social and educational issues.

Born Mziwakhe Eric Sebenza, the radio personality was raised in KZN.  He once considered teaching as profession.  After attending Clydesdale Senior Secondary School, he attended Berea Technical College for his National Diploma in Public Management. Despite working as a receptionist, filing clerk and admin assistant, Sebenza’s love for radio never went away. In July of 2017, he moved to Johannesburg and one week later he got an opportunity at Cosmo FM.

“When I first joined Cosmo FM I had no experience or formal education related to radio,” he told Cosmo City Chronicle. “I had one thing when I left my cooperate Job in KZN coming to Johannesburg: A Dream. I've always wanted to be a radio and TV personality, I knew I needed experience and some basic, formal training behind my name to help me get my foot into the door of the radio industry.”

Sebenza prepared to be a radio personality for years, he said. “I would do a radio show even when I was alone in the house. I recorded it on my phone, keeping my dream alive.”

Sebenza joined radio at a time when The Media Connection, the front runner in community radio airtime sales, was branching on Training Academy (TMC Academy) to boost skills in community radio. Sebenza benefited from the academy as he went through a Radio Production NQF Level 5 Course.

“I thank God because that is what I needed,” he said. “A huge thanks to Cosmo FM for a lifetime opportunity. I have learnt excellent writing and storytelling skills. I am a qualified Content Producer and an On-Air Personality with experience.”

Sebenza said he will continue to pursue his career in the broadcasting media industry, focusing more on producing and presenting. He urged aspiring content producers to get involved in spaces like campus radio stations and community radio stations in order cultivate their skills.

Netballers embrace heritage day through sports

Six netball teams participated in a heritage day tournament on 24 September 2018 at Multipurpose to honor South African heritage through sports.

Lebogang Ramatlho, a member of Cosmo City’s Sports Forum and a netball coach, organized the one day tournament to celebrate heritage day. The participating teams were from Cosmo City Zandspruit and Diepsloot. Nyeletsi Netball Club won the tournament and The Young Ones became the runners up. Some of the teams which participated include Conquerors, Ultimate girls and The Flying Squad.

Ramatlho told Cosmo City Chronicle that it was a good thing for the ladies to spend the day celebrating in the netball pitch as it shows the linkage between heritage and sports. The main aim of the tournament was to show that netball is alive, she said..

“Netball is one of the most overlooked sports in the community,” said Ramatlho. “People always turn a blind eye when it comes to sports that are facilitated by women, but we want to show people that netball is a live sport like soccer.”

She added that getting a proper funding for netball sports is the main challenge they are facing.

“Due to the lack of sponsors, we had nothing to hand over to the winners,” explained Ramatlho . “We hope to get sponsorship so that we can reward medals and trophies to the winners.  It will also motivate players because there are so many ladies who are very passionate about netball in our community.”

She concluded that they also face a challenge to ferry players to and from the tournament venues as most of them cannot afford to pay for themselves.

On 6 October Ramatlho will also be hosting an unsponsored tournament at the same venue.
