|Copper handmade bangles|
The importance of communication, understanding and appreciation was what I learnt from conversing with different stall owners all around town.BonifaceChikwenhere said “It is not entirely about making money, appreciation of my work”. I understood an individual perception of an artist. Kalu Tshabalala, a copper wire jeweller. A wise man. What he said was profound. He said ‘A had that gives shall receive’ and then gave me a pair of earrings.
Not once did he try and convince me to buy any of his jewellery before that. My entertainment satisfaction travelled from craft to music. I couldn’t help but be star struck when I got to watch The Muffinz at the Smirnoff Music Room. They are the best South African boy band I have ever seen. Just when I thought my night couldn’t get any better, jazz with Asanda Mqiki just made my night warmer.
