Cute and Feathery

19/11/2009

For the past two days, online and mobile social media community site Zoopy.com (Update: Zoopy no longer does user generated content and we’ve switch to a YouTube Channel) has featured two videos featuring Shiraaz Ismail . Shiraaz hosts the breakfast show on Bush Radio with Victor J. CLICK ON PICS TO WATCH THE VIDEOS.

We are not sure why, but we think the cute and funny factor may help. On a serious note Shiraaz wanted to highlight that many young people need to learn the national anthem.

Bush Radio uses zoopy.com YouTube.com to promote the work of artists as well as some of the video productions it is involved in, like the work of the CREW , during the annual Media Kidocracy Konfrence. It is also a way in which the interns at the station get to experience the intergration of media.

Shaz’s attempt at the national anthem

17/11/2009

Over the past few days there has been lots of fuss made over how Ras Dumisani sang the national anthem at the opening of a rugby match between South Africa and France.

Shiraaz Ismail of the breakfast show, with a little coaching from Victor J decided to give it a try live on air. He made fewer mistakes that Ras Dumisani, but you be the judge.

The actual words to our anthem:

Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrika (God Bless Africa)

Maluphakanyisw’ uphondo lwayo, (Raise high Her glory)

Yizwa imithandazo yethu, (Hear our Prayers)

Nkosi sikelela, thina lusapho lwayo (God bless us, we her children)

Morena boloka setjhaba sa heso, (God protect our nation)

O fedise dintwa le matshwenyeho, (End all wars and tribulations)

O se boloke, O se boloke setjhaba sa heso, (Protect us, protect our nation)

Setjhaba sa South Afrika – South Afrika. (Our nation South Africa – South Africa)

Uit die blou van onse hemel, (Ringing out from our blue heavens)

Uit die diepte van ons see, (From the depth of our seas)

Oor ons ewige gebergtes, (Over our everlasting mountains)

Waar die kranse antwoord gee, (Where the echoing crags resound)

Sounds the call to come together, And united we shall stand, Let us live and strive for freedom,

In South Africa our land.
