Dumza Maswana IS THIS WEEKS #LEKKERMOS STAR

BY BayFM

An authentic South African sound, beautiful instrumentals and original lyrics. The BayFM 107.9 team thinks Dumza Maswana's music has it all. If you are in to something a little more soulful, you have to check out his song Ubizo.
 
Dumza Maswana is one of many children who grew up in rural South Africa with music being a central part of their upbringing, from home to church to the community. He has been singing and composing original music since he was a child. His music has been described as soulful and Jazzy, but Dumza himself struggles to categorise it saying, "I like to write songs about every day events that happen to ordinary people. Things that everyone can relate to."
 
Dumza is a singer-songwriter and ALL of  his music is self-composed. He writes about his life experiences, views and the things that inspire and motivate him. He is deeply rooted in his culture and religion so his music does display his strong sense of tradition and religious beliefs.
Dumza is really making waves in the Eastern Cape and all over the nation. He has been fea­tured in music produced by the award-winning DJ Mobi Dixon and DJ Palture. He has also shared the stage with some of the country’s top artists including Thandiswa Mazwai, Simphiwe Dana, Ringo Madlingozi, Tshepo Tshola, Sphokazi, the Jaziel Brothers, Mafikizolo and the legendary Victor Ntoni.


Dumza Maswana is definitely a name to watch. His fantastic songs are often played on BayFM's #LekkerMos Show with DJ Sebz every Saturday from 8pm to midnight. Don't miss out. Tune into BayFM 107.9 our community your radio.

What does Heritage Day mean to the Bay?

BY BayFM

Heritage day is a holiday unique to our country where all South Africans are encouraged to show off and celebrated the vibrant cultures passed down to them. South Africa is uniquely diverse with its many different ethnicities, races, languages and cultures; and it is for this reason that South Africa was coined as the rainbow nation, to best reflect and describe the multi-culture and multi-racial post-Apartheid dispensation.
 
The country’s first Heritage day was observed in 1996. Prior to this; September 24th was known as a Shaka Day in honour of the iconic Late King, Shaka Zulu who is still revered and honoured on this day by many who chose to spend the day at his grave in remembrance. Shaka day was excluded before Parliament in the Public Holidays Bill in 1995; and with a spirit of reunion; Heritage day arose as a compromise in order for all cultures to participate in the celebration of the diversity of the country. It is a day that encompasses and includes all citizens of South Africa and their inherited identities both tangible and abstract. The creative expression of food, language, attire and traditions displays our rainbow nation for what it is was always intended to be. Just as an actual rainbow, the rainbow nation ideal is that the many cultures of South Africa-with all their differences- live harmoniously. Complementing each other as a unit, while still allowing each culture to shine in all its rich history and beauty. On this day People are encouraged to dress in their traditional attire and to prepare food indigenous to their heritage.
 
September 24th is also shared with National Braai day. This is a culture/tradition that all South Africans share whether it is referred to as Chisa Nyama, Ukhosa or simply; Braai. National Braai day is thought to be the equivalent of the Irish St Patricks day and the French Bastille Day when all South Africans are equally encouraged to light fires and prepare meals to partake in one of the few national cultures shared by all citizens. Heritage day remains a symbol of diversity, acceptance, celebration and the wealth that lies in the South African identity.

Blaq Tye is this weeks #LekkerMos star

BY BayFM

Blaq Tye is one of the freshest and hottest properties of the Nelson Mandela bay and the Eastern Cape. His origional song, 'Dudlu Ntombazana', has been a hit on the BayFM playlist. It is for that reason that the team felt fit to award Tye the very first #LekkerMos star of the week award. His track 'Dudlu Ntombazana' is a smooth and soulful song that is guaranteed to get you singing along. 

 

Blaq Tye has performed in sold-out shows and has thus been commissioned as the solo act in many Live Music Venues. His 13 track debut album titled “Mamela Mna” was released on the 11th of August 2017. The BayFM team thinks it is definitely worth a listen.

 

Blaq Tye has performed at a number of festivals including Ebubeleni Annual Music Festival. Our local artist has also shared stages with the likes of Lira; Casper Nyovest; Caiphus Semenya; AKA; Oliver Mtukudzi; The Soil; Donald; Heavy K; Selina Johnson; Ringo; Nathi; Sankomotha to mention but a few.

Local is “LekkaMos” with Bay FM 107.9

BY Bay FM

 
BayFM 107.9 is making good on the slogan ‘Our Community, Your radio’ with the launch of its exciting new campaign ‘#LekkaMos’.
 
 The # LekkaMos concept, aimed at providing a platform of exposure for home-grown talent, is set to revolutionise both marketing of and appreciation for local talent, across all genres.
 
“As a radio station functioning in the Eastern Cape, we have recognised both the abundance of exceptional talent, as well as our responsibility to said talent. It’s with this in mind, that this concept was birthed,” said BayFM Acting General Manager, Angelique Graaff.
 
#LekkaMos is derived from Local is Lekker, a phrase often used in conjunction with music or anything home-grown. Mos, an Afrikaans word, implies that what has been said is well known or self-evident.
“This is exactly what we, as a station, discovered. Our local talent has unique appeal. Gone are the days when aspiring artists relocate to other provinces in an effort to establish themselves.  With #LekkaMos, they can now step it up in their own backyard,” Graaff remarked.
 
With a listenership of 100 000, BayFM has the base to become a stepping stone for budding artists. #LekkaMos will create a platform for artists to show case their talent, by providing airplay to artists looking to break into the industry. This in turn provides the scope to harness local support and encourage greater awareness.
 
“#LekkaMos has the potential to develop beyond radio; it is however essential that we start somewhere. Local artists will soon know that BayFM 107.9 supports home-grown talent. Its #LekkaMos”, said BayFM Programs Manager, Luzuko Qoba.
The Lekkamos show, where only local music and artists will be featured, debuts this coming Saturday at 8pm.
Artists may visit www.bayfm.co.za   for more information on how to submit music.

CLASS OF 2015 READY FOR WORKING WORLD

BY Inkanyezi Events

PORT ELIZABETH, South Africa -  More than 11 000 Grade 12’s representing more than 150 schools were wowed at the 16th edition of the annual Working World Career Expo at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium last week.
The Working World Expo is the largest career guidance initiative of its kind in South Africa and the class of 2015 grabbed the opportunity to be inspired and informed as it begins to prepare applications for various study directions after school.
Running over 3 days, participating matrics interacted with 70 exhibiting organisations representing a diverse range of career, study and funding options.


Exhibitors included the South African Police Services, The NMMU, Vodacom, Rhodes University, The South African Institute for Aquatic Biodiversity, Total Concept Beauty Academy, Old Mutual, The Engineering Council of South Africa, Damelin and VWSA, among others.
All matrics from participating schools were also provided with a Gr 12 Life Orientation curriculum   approved Career Guidance Workbook, free career guidance counselling and a motivational careers  DVD featuring messages from Mark Shuttleworth and other celebrities.


This year a special Gr 9 subject choice evening and a seminar for the leadership bodies of schools was also hosted, where young leaders interacted with the Nelson Mandela Bay Chamber’s Top 40 under 40 achiever.
Inkanyezi Events CEO Andrew Binning said the initiative remained one of the most “value-adding resources to school leavers”.
“Over the past 16 years, based on our personal research, less than 10% of all matrics are sure of what they are going to study after school, Binning said.


“The expo and its resources move our school leavers into a better place to make one of the most important decisions in their lives, and in many cases actually provide learners with their light bulb moment.”
“Learners are encouraged to find their passion and balance it with the practicalities of the job market in South Africa, which desperate needs our young leaders to make a meaningful contribution.’’


Binning said he was energised and optimistic about the calibre of the region’s matrics.
“The attitude, respect and maturity with which the class of 2015 has gone about its research and engaged business and educational institutions at the expo, was remarkable and gives one a great sense of optimism around the future of our country,’’ Binning said.
The expo hosted by Inkanyezi Events annually is supported by Coega, The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality, the NMMU, The South African Agency for Science and Technology Advancement, Access Management and Bay FM.

CLASS OF 2015 TO BE PREPARED FOR JOB MARKET

BY Inkanyezi Events

The country's largest Career Guidance Initiative - The Working World Exhibition will be hosted
by business at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium from March 4-6 to boost the job prospects of 2015 matriculants.

The Working World Exhibition, now in its 16th year, will be hosted with the participation of big business and leading educational institutions including Coega, Vodacom,  Access Management VWSA, Old Mutual , SAASTA and the NMMU.

Organised by Inkanyezi Events, in partnership with the Department of Education and the business community,  the collective provides World-class Career Guidance Textbooks, personal career guidance counselling and career DVD resources  to 20 000 Grade 12 learners, for free.

Over the past 16 years Inkanyezi has interacted directly with over 240 000 grade 12s.

While the Textbooks, compiled by Inkanyezi, The Department Of Labour, The Department of Education and the NMMU are distributed to Grade 12's at the beginning of the year, the initiative culminates with an exhibition attended by up to 100 exhibiting institutions, including corporates and 15 000 matrics.

“Big business will be putting its money where its mouth is when it comes to the urgent need for career guidance at the 16th edition of South Africa’s most comprehensive career initiative, the Working World Exhibition’’, said Inkanyezi CEO Andrew Binning.
“With more and more matric exemptions being achieved each year and the business sector demanding skilled employees, matrics and their families need to think very carefully about their plans after school,” Binning said.
 “The key issue for any school-leaver is to gain meaningful employment after training. While increasing numbers of learners are gaining access to University, employers are requiring specialised or technical skills.
“The fear is that school leavers do general degrees with little specialisation rather than skills training, as an example, that would make them far more employable and competitive in the labour market,” Binning said.
Coega,  Vodacom, Old Mutual,  The Department of Education, Volkswagen South Africa, Access Management, SAASTA and Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University will be playing an active role in the event in order to match the skills of job market entrants with the needs of employers.


The exhibition exposes Grade 12 learners to career and study fields across a broad range of sectors, represented by an estimated 100 exhibitors, Binning said,
 “The entire initiative is about opening channels, new thinking and possibilities for school-leavers and connecting them with industry driven information that enables them to plan a successful entry into the world of work.”
“There are many sectors in the economy that promise work opportunity, while others remain constrained as the economy moves slowly out of crisis.  Understanding where the opportunity lays and how to match that with a passion, is key to job creation and economic growth,’’ Binning said.
“Although there are large numbers of unemployed young people and a constantly growing labour supply, many enterprises struggle to fill open positions, Binning said.
 “According to an article published in The Economist in 2012, in South Africa 3 million young people are not in education, training or employment, we have 600 000 unemployed university graduates but  800 000 job vacancies. This clearly shows that there are massive skills mismatches.  Partly as a result of that and a slowly growing economy South Africa has the third highest number of unemployed out-of-school youth in the world.


"Stats SA has confirmed that the level of education attainment for the youth (aged 15 to 34) has improved between 2008–2014, but their labour market prospects had in fact deteriorated," Binning said.
The exhibition is open from 8.30am to 3pm on each day. Entry is free.  An estimated 15000 Grade 12 learners will be attending and the exhibition is open to the public. Parents are encouraged to come along with their children in order to gain as much as possible from the exhibition. A customised leadership seminar, for the learner leadership bodies of schools will take place on March 5 and a Subject Choice information Workshop for Grade 9’s and their parents will be held on March 3 from 4pm-6pm, organisers confirmed,
“The prefects seminar, supported by Coega, is aimed at providing the region’s young leaders with resources and insight to make a profound contribution to society”, said Inkanyezi Project Director Wellington Jansen.


The young leaders will also have the opportunity of engaging with the Nelson Mandela Bay Chamber of Commerce’s top 40 under 40 business leaders.

BayFM provides opportunity for community support

BY BayFM

Bayfm has enjoyed amazing support from listeners in the last while. The support has been evident, particularly during the period the station was challenged with signal distribution issues. Earlier this year, lightning caused damage to critical equipment, resulting in frequent off-air status. The current, ongoing load-shedding further affects the station’s uninterrupted broadcasting ability.
“We have since sourced a permanent solution to both our power supply and signal distribution challenges. As we implement these solutions, we will have more time to focus on delivering excellent community radio. We know our listeners in our broadcast area are behind us 100%; we therefore want to give them an opportunity to contribute financially to building a sustainable on-air service”, says General Manager Antonio Venturini.
BayFM has to date been managing its own signal distribution. Within the foreseeable future and with sufficient financial support, signal distribution will be outsourced to Sentech, a state-owned enterprise responsible for various types of signal distribution. This will ensure greater coverage within and beyond our broadcast area, zero off-air incidences and enhanced radio quality.
To facilitate listener and corporate financial support, BayFM will launch its Telethon at 6am on Monday 15 December and continue until 9pm on Sunday 21 December.
During this time, pledges can be made by calling 041 360 0909, or emailing studio@bayfm.co.za or by sending an SMS with the word ‘pledge ’and your commitment to 34852. SMS cost R1.50
BayFM is a not-for-profit organisation and therefore able to issue Section 18A tax-deductable donation certificates to those individuals and businesses making contributions

Class of 2015 to be prepared for job market

BY Inkanyezi Events

While the matric class of 2014 anxiously awaits the final examination results, business has already teamed up with the Department of Education to boost the job prospects of 2015 matriculants.
Plans for the country's largest Career Guidance Initiative - The Working World Exhibition  - were announced at a function at the Nelson Mandela Bay stadium this morning (Dec 3, 2014).

BAYFM RENEWED LICENCE, ENHANCED LINE-UP

BY BayFM

The broadcasting license for Bay FM has been renewed for a further 5 years. The license, as issued by the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA), provides Bay FM with another 5-year window to educate, inform and entertainment its close to 90 000 listeners within its broadcast area.


“We serve a diverse, dynamic, rapidly developing community and are delighted to be allowed to continue. As a community broadcaster which is in touch with its people, ours is to contribute to the growth and development of our broadcast area which includes Nelson Mandela Bay, Kouga and Sundays River Municipalities. These areas combined is in essence a microcosm of South Africa” said General Manager, Antonio Venturini.

 

The station is experiencing exciting developments, designed to strengthen its position as a leader in its field.

 

“The next 5 years will see us go from strength to strength, entrenching our catchphrase “Our Community, Your Radio”, Venturini said.
Saturday, 18 October kick starts changes with an all new Saturday Breakfast Show.

 

“We’ve seen an increase in demand for an interactive, lively weekend breakfast programme”, says Venturini. The presenters of Weekend Breakfast – Luzuko Qoba, Siba Swartbooi and Lerato Thipa are no strangers to radio, having been involved in weekend programming on BayFM to date.  This new programme is followed by the ever popular “Group1 Saterdagjolyt”, presented by the Alberts brothers, Kobus and André. 

 

An all new Afrikaans programme makes its debut on Saturday 18 October. “My Kontrei”, presented by Dr Brink Botha; it will run from 2pm to 5pm and will focus closely on local content, artist profiles and an unpacking of cultures and its nuances- an element of present day society, which is often held dear to many. The final hour of the show will be dedicated to property talk and developments in and around our broadcast area.


Sunday line-up has seen its only change recently, with Pieter Huysamen anchoring the Sunday music show “ Musiek met Feel”. Pieter, who is totally blind for the last 12 years, is the first blind radio presenter in the Eastern Cape.


Weekday Breakfast, which runs from 6am to 9am, sports a facelift, with the addition of two new voices. Armand De Lauwere and Anja Cole join Marlon Primo, while Alida Senekal bids farewell to the show. Rochlé Bloem previously co-host in the Breakfast Show now joins Kevin D on the “Out to Lunch” programme (12 noon to 3pm).

 

The weekday music programme, “Nightschool, is graduating, with a new name to boot. "Studio 041", as it will now be called, will provide weekday listening pleasure and dynamic conversation-a platform for 20 to 30 year olds to “tell it like it is”. The show will be anchored by DJ Spectrum (Chad Smith), Leah Moodaley and Taku Mharapara (DJ Marbles). The station plans to host an official Studio 041 launch party during November.


Friday evenings from 10pm to 12am will see the return of the once-popular creative arts programme, "Present Testament". This platform is specifically re-introduced to cater for all forms of local creative skills ranging but not limited to hiphop, spoken word and even fashion design.


“We have in recent times done our level best to address burning issues and beneficial community matters. Creating a bigger platform to discuss that which matters in our community seems only fitting”, commented Venturini. The talk show “Community Matters”, previously aired on Monday evenings, will now run from Monday to Wednesday evenings from 8pm – 9 pm, thereby providing more time to address matters of interest to our community.


October also saw the return of traffic news fundi Tobie Jonck. Traffic News has since been increased to include lunch time reporting over and above the regular Breakfast and Drive Show reports.


Weekday line-up changes will commence on Monday, 20 October 2014.

BAYFM PAVING THE WAY FOR BLIND PASSION

BY Bay FM

BayFM 107.9 recently welcomed a new voice to the airwaves when Pieter Huysamen took over anchoring the popular Sunday evening music programme “Musiek Met Feel” a few weeks ago.

 

What makes this addition to the BayFM team significant is the fact that Pieter is blind, making him the first blind radio presenter in the Eastern Cape.

 

Pieter’s eyes were irreparably damaged when acid was thrown in his face in 2002; his eyes were surgically removed as a result.

“Pieter has the voice, life experience and extensive knowledge of music - a perfect combination for Musiek met Feel”, says BayFM General Manager Antonio Venturini. He believes Pieter’s passion contributes immensely to the success of the programme.

 

“When I still had my eyesight, I tackled everything in life systematically. When I became blind, I merely adapted my systems accordingly. The same applies to being on air. I’m not blind – I just can’t see”, said Huysamen.

 

While Pieter has a co-host to operate the playout system, he prepares and researches playlists for each show.

“I didn’t have time at my disposal to pursue my passion for music before. The opportunity presented to me by BayFM107.9 is truly fulfilling.”

 

Musiek Met Feel airs every Sunday evening from 18h00 to 21h00 on BayFM 107.9
