All I read about Robert DeLong‘s high energy performance was proven to be true when I saw him live on stage at the Just Music Sessions Amplified by World of Yamaha earlier this week. Even though he was the only person on stage with lights, a drum kit, keyboard and midi, the level of energy coming off that stage was amazing.
I produced a music video for Jonathan Butler in 2000 as part of a television industry training initiative, which I started when I held the training and development officer portfolio as an executive member of the Cape Town chapter of the NTVA (National Television and Video Association – now defunct).
The then newcomer Director of the music video was Akin Omotoso, who has gone on to direct and produce numerous TV shows and movies.
In 2012, Forbes estimated Carter’s net worth at nearly $500 million, making him one of the most financially successful hip-hop artists and entrepreneurs in America.
I was unable to attend the media viewing earlier this week, of this exciting new movie filmed in Johannesburg. After watching the trailer, I will definitely go see this movie, even after The Hollywood Reporter called it a “bottom-of-the-barrel chase film.”
I felt so chuffed that an international record company asked me to punt a South African rock band called Goodnight Wembley.
