TSHIAMO “TSITSI” DUBE SOARS WITH BRAND NEW SINGLE

Durban-based Singer and Songwriter Tsitsi, real name Tshiamo Dube has released her brand new single Soar! At 13, this young musician with a sweet, mellow and strong voice is making her mark in the music industry. Soar follows the release of her first song What About Us. Soar is consolation and encouragement for people to find and celebrate themselves even though they may have disappointed those they love. “There is so much pressure to be perfect, to please people, Soar is a reminder that things will work out and we will soar and rise above and beyond the expectations of others. It is a song about overcoming and being a better version of yourself, I want young boys and girls to feel encouraged and know they are enough”, commented the talented beauty.

Born in Pietermaritzburg, Tsitsi is not only a good singer and songwriter, she also plays the guitar and is part of a Marimba band. Having performed at a number of events in and around Durban, Tsitsi is confident that her contribution to the music industry will inspire young people to work hard in achieving their dreams and bettering the world.

With a burning desire and passion to “bend the world” through her music, she is passionate about storytelling and uses her voice as an instrument to inspire people, telling stories that they can relate and learn from. She firmly believes that the new generation can better its society, beginning with small acts of kindness that will eventually “Bend the World” so that it can become better.

Soar is the perfect pop song infused with her mellow and emotive voice and an up-tempo beat. It is is the song you want to drive to, relax at home to or dance to at a party. Inspired by the likes of Mariechan, Dua Lipa, Alessia Cara and her wonderful family, Tsitsi also seeks to educate young people about the power of investing in the futures, financial responsibility and the relentless pursuit of dreams.

“I’ve always had an appreciation for music and the way that it can make you feel, the magical experience you can acquire from listen to an emotional song is amazing. This is the special connection that I want to share with everyone through music”.

Her passionate connection with music sparked in 2008 when she was gifted her first guitar, from that moment she had fallen in love with music and has been dedicated to building herself up musically.

Soar is available for download on iTunes and Spotify.

Visiting Cape Town On Budget

Cape Town, South Africa, is one of the top tourist attractions in the world and promises adventure, incredible food, and natural beauty that is hard to beat. But, because many of its visitors are paying in foreign currencies like dollars and pounds, some of the more popular attractions can be a little expensive for South African tourists that are visiting Cape Town on a budget.

Don’t let tighter purse strings stop you from visiting Cape Town, though; because there are loads of freed or cheaper things to see and do that still spell out the magic of the Mother City.
Free or Cheap Attractions for Those Visiting Cape Town on a Budget:

Walking Tours

Take your own self-guided walking tour of the city centre and include must-sees like Greenmarket Square, Long Street and all its quirky shops and boutiques, The Company Gardens, Bo-Kaap, the Castle of Good Hope (impressive from the outside, but there’s a reasonable entrance fee of R50 for adults and R25 for children and pensioners), and the District Six Museum in Buitenkant Street (which has an entrance fee of only R40 for adults).

Free guided walking tours are on offer from the Motherland Coffee Company at St George’s Mall. These leave every day at 11h00, 14h00, and 16h20. To book, visit their website – freewalkingtourscapetown.co.za.

The V & A Waterfront

As one of the most popular malls on the African continent, this attraction may not seem to be very budget-friendly. But, there’s so much to see apart from the actual shops and restaurants. Browse the African arts and crafts at the market; watch the yachts, tugs and even cruise liners come into the working harbour; admire the sculptures at Nobel Square or the African Trading Port; and watch as tourists from all over the world discover Cape Town against views of the majestic Table Mountain in the not-too-distant background.

Free Museum Tours

Although most of the museums in Cape Town ask a nominal fee for entering, there are some that are free to enter or that work on a donation basis. These museums include the incredible Cape Town Holocaust Centre (City Bowl), the Cape Medical Museum (Green Point), the Centre for the Book at the National Library (City Bowl), and Rhodes Cottage Museum (Muizenberg).

Zeitz MOCAA

Normally, the entrance fee to this absolutely breath-taking contemporary African art gallery is R190. But, on Wednesdays, visitors that have any form of African identification (like an ID book or driver’s licence) can experience the magic for free. Situated at De Waterkant, just a few minutes’ walk from the main mall of the V & A, this is a must for locals and visitors to Cape Town.

The Company’s Garden

Right in the heart of the City Bowl, there is a lush green oasis known as the Company’s Garden. Feed the squirrels, visit the birds in the aviary, eat under the trees at the restaurant or from your own picnic basket, and explore the fountains, ponds, and the bamboo forest that is more than 80 years old.

Green Point Park

Families, couples, or those needing a time-out will love relaxing at this gorgeous urban park, which is flanked by Signal Hill and the Atlantic Ocean. There are several play areas for little ones, as well as an outdoor labyrinth, walking and cycling paths, ponds with fish and birds, picnic areas and water features. An added bonus is that it is within walking distance from the hubs of Green Point and Sea Point.


Intimate Dinner Dates at Umhlangas ‘The Village Table’

The classic candle-lit dinner date for two has become somewhat a ‘religious practice’ society classifies as a true statement of romance which is an arguable statement. But for a quick second, let’s picture a cultivated and cosmopolitan twist of a 21st century dinner date and voila! – ‘The Village Table’ comes to mind.

Situated in the Pearls Shopping Center which is not far from Umhlangas’ luxury accommodation area, this upbeat restaurant is more than taking your significant other out for a romantic meal but rather an intimate experience. With its very Urbane presence and fashionable setting, the restaurant certainly offers patrons more than just delicious food and amazing cocktails, ‘might I add’!

Without a shadow of doubt, you can expect a weekly lineup act whether it’s a nostalgic live-band performance, Salsa Date Nights or their Soulful Sunday Sessions. The Village Table brings upon various forms of activities to set the ambience and mood during any couples “Date Night”.

A diverse menu selection from: Afro-Portuguese, Mediterranean and Continental Cuisine all under the ‘same table’ , their VT’s Seafood Exotica and Biltong Sirloin Carpaccio certainly speaks of a personal flair due to the precision towards catering for everyone’s palette. “Let’s not forget that Food is the language of love”.

But what’s a good meal without an amazing drink to compliment it! Their drinks menu is very tasteful yet adventurous but a certain must try for couples would have to be their-Rosemary and Lemonade Gin or for the occasional Martini drinkers, their White Chocolate Martini is what I’d like to describe as ‘Heaven on Earth’.

An abundance of romance on display and what you can describe as a great idea of an initimate night out “With Bae”, The Village Table certainly ticks of all the correct boxes for an unforgettable dinner date but be warned about their ‘contagious bug’ which might leave you wanting everyday to be Date Night.
