26 November 2018 MCM: Cedric Fourie

Tonight’s MCM is our beloved actor, Cedric Fourie. He is best known for his role on Skeem Sam’ as the notorious businessman Lehasa. He’s accumulated many fans over the years and is making headlines every now and then.

Born and raised in Orlando Gardens in Soweto, he attended several schools including Lenasia, Greyville Primary School, Princess Primary School, Princess High School and Athlone Boys High School.

Having studied at the University of the Witwatersrand, Cedric worked as a network engineer at mobile companies including Ericcson, the Mobax Group and Huawei Technologies. His primary passion, however, lies in the arts, acting and performing.

In 2012 he had a guest turn as William on the SABC1 soapie Generations. Three years later he played the role of The Hammer on Generations: The Legacy.

In early 2015 he starred in the Mzansi Magic Daily Sun telemovie My 4-5 Just Sleeps as JB, a smooth operator with a strong libido who sleeps with the wrong woman, who in turn decides to put a curse on him by stealing his underwear and taking it to a sangoma.

He aspires to be a Hollywood actor in future and wants to appear on blockbusters both local and international. Catch him tonight at 22:30 live on SABC 3. #TSAon3

26 November 2018 Interview: Bongo Muffin

Bongo Maffin is a South African music group formed in Johannesburg in 1996. They released their first studio album, The Concerto, in 1998, followed by Bongolution (2001) and New Construction (2005). Lead singer Thandiswa Mazwai published her debut solo album, Zabalaza, in 2006.

It would be near blasphemous to deny the huge impact kwaito supergroup of the ’90s, Bongo Maffin has on the current status of music. Having released their last album together in 2005 New Construction with that huge banger Kura Uone (Grow up and you will see), Thandiswa Mazwai, Stoan, Jah Seed and Speedy came together to deliver a heavily afro-beat inspired bop, while not deviating from what we know and love them for.

Bongo Maffin managed to get all of its original members (yes, Speedy re-joined the group after having left prior to their previous album, in pursuit of his solo career under Arthur Mafokate’s record label, 999). We look forward to hearing the rest of the album after over a decade apart, but if the lead single Harare is anything to go by, we can certainly expect a whole new level of creative experimentation and evolution, with the usual touch of Africa of course.

The group is back together with a new single called “Harare” and they’re also working on a new album that is going to be dropping soon. Tune in tonight at 22:30 live on SABC 3 to hear more of their story. #TSAon3
