FRIDAY-ARTS & CULTURE


Today we spoke to Franklin Esau aka Frank E a facilitator/ life coach at the Smiling One Foundation about his new single released called Chucks featuring with Toya G and Mack.

Frank E is a Hip Hop artist originally from Elsies River that has used music as something where he can express himself in, hence music has become apart of him, he has learned a lot of things through music as to what you are exposed to in the everyday life. Music has become a tool on to pull him back from all the challenges that have presented themselves through out his life.

The inspiration behind the song Chucks is how he used to grow up, as chucks will always trend, it is about the community and how you need to take it back to where you came from. He then asked Toya G and Mack that is part of the youth that he has been grooming to collaborate with him. The song was created in the CMD, where he found Rocks Delton from UCT who documented his life story and shot the music video of the song chucks, as it is featured in Michell’s Plain, Belhar, Elsies River and Ocean View.

WEDNESDAY- GENDER EQUALITY

Today we spoke to Naeemah Simons the Author of the book called I Am A Survivor.

Naeemah is a Social Auxiliary Worker that discovered the passion for writing in high school. She felt she need to debrief herself in some way and that’s how the idea to start writing I am a survivor came about. Naeemah bestow her writing as a gift, as it is exhaling to her, it is an opportunity to connect with people and tell their stories.

I am a survivor is a non fiction book, that speaks about real life situations such as abuse, rape, drug misuse, teenage pregnancy ect. The moral of the book is that everyone is a survivor regardless of your situation / circumstances.

The cover of the book symbolizes: black is the cocoon that everyone is in with all the challenges that you face, the negativity in your life. And the butterfly is the positivism in your life and the day you break free.

The book is an easy read.
