Tweelite Webster gets an overseas breakthrough

Cosmo City music producer Dj Tweelite Webster is working on a trip to perform in Finland on 25 October.

 Born Thembinkosi Ndlovu, the Deep House music producer got the attention of a Finland singer Janely Leino in June 2018 after posting his song called Broken Hearted on YouTube Channel. Since then, Dj Tweelite has produced songs for a number of international artists like Monica Kiss of Amsterdam in Netherlands, AMA of Finland and Toledo Prince an Latouya Milez of Chicago. His songs have been played on Ukhozi FM, Cosmo FM and in some radio stations in Finland. One of his hit songs is titled “So In Love” featuring AMA and T-Girl.

In an interview, he said working with artists from other countries is a milestone, and it has helped him to understand the business side of music.

“I think this is a huge breakthrough for me,” he said. “I met Janely Leino through social media. She loved the music I produce. We started working together and she linked me to other musicians who love Deep House music.”

Tweelite is using his bedroom as a studio and believes anyone can be a DJ or producer using the little equipment that one can afford.

“It takes the love for sound and passion to be successful,” he said. “My inspiration came from Black Coffee, and he is my role model. One thing that I have learnt is that it is important to invest and spend time in your musical career as an artist.”

Tweelite works with his wife T-Girl under their recording label TNT Crescent RSA, and he has worked with local artists like Mr Mo, DJ Riddik and Lizwi.

As he goes to Finland, he is asking for support from his fans.

Empowering the girl child through beauty pageant

The 20-year-old Damelin College student has been involved in community development projects including donating to the needy. She told the Chronicle that she wants to bring change through beauty pageant.

“I entered Miss Common Wealth SA to uplift a girl child especially those who are underprivileged,” she said.

“I was raised by a grandmother in Limpopo Ga Mphahlele, and I believe that charity begins at home. Therefore, I started doing my campaign at Thageatala Secondary School in Limpopo where I donated pads to students. I have some projects to run in Cosmo City. I am currently planning to do feeding project in December.”

NNC fun day celebrated in style

Community members turned out at Multipurpose Centre on 6 October when National Neglected Citizens (NNC) hosted its first annual fun day in Cosmo City.

Performances from artistes like Mashona, Mali, and Zuko  SA kept the audience fascinated and celebrating.

NNC hosted the event to activate the organization, get the community involved and raise funds, funds, according to NNC spokesperson Bongi Mmako.

“Cosmo City is one of the communities that we represent,” he said. “There are people who are struggling with shelter. One thing that we realised is that people are not united in this community.  Once the community members are united, the level of participation improves and they can tackle issues collectively.

“I am happy that we managed to bring together NNC members from different parts of the province. It is our time to get to know each other.”

NNC is passionate about restoring human, values, dignity and rights. “Most people in developing cities like Johannesburg are not enjoying their rights to live in good settlements.

“So we, as a civic organisation, have a role to play to make sure that people get what they deserve. We are not affiliated to any political party, but we need citizens to be free when it comes to settlements.

“Sometimes you find that there are people who pay a lot of money for rent while they earn very little. There are some people who qualify for RDPs, but are not yet living in those houses. Our aim is to address all these challenges in a fair manner.”

Residents, speaking to the Chronicle, expressed their happiness about the event.  It was interesting to hear some hopeful ideas from the NNC, said community member Mbekezeli Malinga. “As long as they are not representing any political party, I think we should give them a chance and see how they can assist our communities,” Malinga said.
