What to expect on Real talk With Anele

Real Talk With Anele broadcast on Mondays to Fridays at 17h00 on SABC 3. Tune in for a great show hosted by the great award-winning Anele Mdoda. 

Episode 33: Social Grants  

With the gross iniquities in the country’s socio-economic landscape millions who are disadvantaged, disabled, heading childhood headed homes and even the elderly rely on their monthly stipend from the South African Social Security Agency or SASSA to survive. There was uncertainty as to whether grants will be paid in May but that was since resolved but it seems the storm is far from over.

Zwai Bala and MK

Our guest today hails from the dusty streets of Kwa-Nabuhle outside Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape. He knew from a very young age that music was what he was meant to do and made history as the first black member of the famous Drakensberg Boys Choir during apartheid. He was one of the members of the trio TKZee which first broke onto the big-time music scene in 1997. 

Mzwandile “Zwai” Bala has since launched a solo career in gospel music and his obvious love for music seems to have come full circle as he is also a musical director, composer, songwriter, arranger, teacher and public speaker.
