The Nando’s Basha In Casa 3 closed off women’s month on the 21st of August 2022 with a stunning line-up of artists who blew guests away at Nando’s Maponya Mall. The event featured impressive line-up with performances by Basetsana, Kallo and Basha Uhuru headliner Msaki.
Msaki serenaded the audience with an excellent selection of her hit songs such as Fetch your life, Ubomi Abumanga, Mntakababa and Khusela. Rising R&B and Soul singer, Kallo warmed up the afternoon. Powerhouse vocalist Basetsana’s performance followed where she blazed up the stage with a live rendition of her hit amapiano song Dali Nguwe produced by Wanitwa Mos & Master KG.
We spoke to Basetsana about how she ended up performing at the Nandos gig as well as what feeds her creativity.
“What feeds my creativity most importantly is my spirituality, my personal experience and God and the things around me. But I’m more of a narrator, I narrate what is happening in my life”, she explains.
We also had a chat with Kallo. The RnB/Soul songstress participated in the 2021 BridgeFire accelerator programme. She spoke to us about her personal journey with music as well as what her experience has been like as a woman trying to make it in the industry.
“For me, it’s been very eye opening that I must work on myself and my craft; learn how to produce, learn how to play an instrument so that I can be able to do the music thing majority of it alone,” she says.
“The idea is to not only get people fired up for Basha Uhuru later this year but also to bring Basha to the people through a showcase of emerging talents from our music programmes,” says Kirsty Niehaus, Marketing Manager: Of creativity Portfolio at Nando’s. “It’s a free event for quests, so they can enjoy their delicious PERi-PERi chicken with a side of music.
Previously, our guest musos have included Langa Mavuso, Sio, and Aymos, with up-and-coming talents such as Wenawedwa, Khan Khalii and Muneyi from Bridges for Music as well as the Nando’s internal music talent search, Nandocas Uhurus. As the event continues to grow, more talent will continue to serenade our guests with their talent. Basha Uhuru ticket sales are going on sale this month and we’re excited about using these Basha in Casa events to build up towards the festival itself.”
