OppiKoppi ”Odyssey” 2014

The pre-oppi build up just was so huge, with all the artist and line up which was listed, there was no way anyone could have missed out on this one. It has been my first year in Johannesburg, so by default i was making the long trek to Northam, Limpopo.

This has been the 20th annual OppiKoppi Festival, in which it was just a little gathering on musicians and bands which performed on the little koppi back in a weekend in May 1994. The event organizers had no idea back than that the festival would turn out to be what it is today. The crowd has grown to over 20 000 festival goers, some of them which has just broken their Oppi-Virgin or some which are Oppi-Veterans.

The journey to Oppi was very much a mental and physical preparation for what was about to happen over the next 3 days, which if you ask me those 3 days felt like weeks/months. The sight of the koppi gets bigger and the music gets louder as you just approach which seems to be a magical musical wonderland. We decided to just set up the base-camp, which we didnt see much over the 3 days as the magical land was too vast and too much happenings going around throughout the 3 days.

Before heading to Oppi-Koppi, i did some homework and read many reviews on what i was about to get myself into and what our days in Odyssey was going to be like. That reviews had nothing on the what i was getting myself into. The friendly, 20 000 faces welcomes you from the time you set foot onto the farm. It felt like i knew and met these peoples for over 20 years, it was the spirit of one and no one was about to judge you for how you looked or even what you were or weren’t wearing in that case.

The music, performance and artist just took the whole festival to a whole other level and experience.  The music genres from which started off as just a Rock n Roll festival, we were coming across all genres of music such as Deep House, Trap, Dub Step, Drum and Bass, Classical, Hip Hop, Rap and even some poetry just to say. So if it was music which brought you to Oppi, than you would have gotten it all way around. The line-up of artist has us mission from one stage to the next, not wanting to miss out on any one of the artist which were performing out there. The festival lineup was just too hectic but the main headline acts were” Newtown Knife Gang”, ”The Kiffness”, ”The Wrestler, The Slut and TheDealer”, ”Metro Ticket”, ”DJ Capital”, ”DJ Soulo Starr”, ”Miss CJ”, ”Da Capo”, ”Reason”, ”Van Coke Kartel”, ”PHFat”, ”HHP”, ”The Sunday Punchers”, ”Cassper Nyovest”, ‘DJ Fresh”, ”Das Kapital” and ”Mr Green”.

(This should have been the part of the article in which i tell you much more of the 3 days events, but unfortunately that part is very much vague and was lost somewhere in the dust)

The overall experience at Oppi was really and truly a real magical journey (We witnessed many fairies, creatures, warriors, onesies, birthday suits, flying tents and magical jamming MK trojan horse). It was definitely a festival in which you had to experience and witness once in your life, but for me i would say that this was my first but it wouldn’t be my last.

Thanks to all which was involved in the Oppi-Koppi and we hope to see you all around for the next 20 years.

Big ups to all those involved with this festival and all the sponsor, ”Hilltop Live Media”, ”Windhoek Draught”, ”MK”, ”Red Bull Studio”, ”5FM”, ”MTV” and ”Rolling Stone”.

NICKI MINAJ “ANACONDA” – COVER ARTWORK

During the early hours of 24th July, the beautiful and talented ”Nicki Minaj” announces her latest single with dropping this little (Or not soo little) album cover on her social media channels and website.

The album art did just what it needed on the social media platforms, with causing quite a stir. The picture which after just hours of its release, can have taken much of the concentration off the announcement of the latest single ”Anaconda” but rather focusing it on more obvious places. (Insert words here). The cover artwork sees “Nicki Minaj’‘ crouched down in a little pink sports top and a tiny g-string, while wearing the dope Jordan customed hi-top sneakers.

Lets just hope that the ”Anaconda” single, really does stand up to the saying ”A Picture says a 1000 words”

Nike Air Jordan ”Future”

The latest and newest release from the Nike ”Air Jordan” came in the form of a sneaker dressed in a woven upper and contrasting midsole. These are one of those Jordans which you either seem to love it or hate it, no other two-ways about that.

An asymmetrical lacing system enhances the aesthetic, while gold accents; seen on the aglets and Jumpman emblem on the tongue, really gives this Jordan Future a premium look and feel. The Jordan Future has been released in two new colourways, ”Wolf Grey White” and ”Black White” both looking fresh and sweet at the same time.

These has just dropped and is available at Shelflife for a sweet little buck, if you think they cool enough might as well get these delivered to you from these guys too. Stay Fresh and Keep it sweet.

The Real Success Experience 2014

The Real Success Experience, to be staged at Gallagher Estate, Midrand, on 12 and 13 July, will feature a panel of acclaimed South African speakers and experts in a range of disciplines. Organiser Brian Walsh, CEO of the REAL Entrepreneur Institute, notes that many businesses fail because of the mindsets of their owners. “The biggest challenge facing any business is the business owner. If the owner does not have the right mindset and behaviours, the business is doomed to fail,” he says.

“Entrepreneurs and business owners often feel burdened by stress, anxiety and a lack of self-belief. They frequently feel alone in this. Once they discover they are not alone, and learn how to overcome those feelings, they are empowered to grow – both personally and in business.”

Walsh says feedback from many events he has participated in prompted him to present the Real Success Experience, with a programme developed in partnership with successful South African entrepreneurs and behavioural and development experts who are passionate about teaching and sharing their experiences. “Local people want to hear how individuals and businesses thrived in the face of our unique challenges. They want to know exactly what strategies and approaches were used to overcome challenges and become successful,” says Walsh.

In collaboration with experts such as sales specialist Neil Malan, author, inspirational speaker, and multi-millionaire entrepreneur Billy Selekane, psychology and leadership expert, author and international speaker Justin Cohen, ‘fearless’ businessman and investor Coert Coetzee, leading marketing coach Barry Mitchell and international mind power and personal mastery authority Robin Banks, Walsh has prepared a programme designed to fast-track personal and business growth. “This event is called an experience, rather than a conference, because instead of simply presenting an assortment of speakers, the Real Success Experience programme has been carefully put together by a group of people who collectively want to make a difference. The content flows to ensure that every crucial aspect of personal and business success is addressed over the two days of the event,” says Walsh.

Up to 4,000 delegates are expected to benefit from the experience, says Walsh, with 2,000 tickets to be made available for free. Over 14 top South African speakers, entrepreneurs, inspirational teachers and leading human behavioural and business specialists will outline strategies for success, aiming to transform the lives of delegates.
