What About the People? Marc Lottering pens powerful song

What About the People? Marc Lottering pens powerful song

13 August 2020 5:06 PM

The need for food relief from vulnerable communities since the onset of lockdown has reached unprecedented levels. 

Food is running low and sponsors can no longer assist. 

In an interview with Carl Wastie, Tafelsig Activist Joanie Fredericks shares that for five months she has pleaded with the president for an intervention. 

The stark reality is that this nation has come to the end of the road in terms of food provision. I have pleaded for 5 months, ongoing with the president to hear our plea. 

Our words really fell on deaf ears.

One day I realised... let's bring in other people that would not normally be activistic about a particular issue. It must be somebody, a celebrity that understands this particular community. 

To help shed light on the desperate situation, Marc Lottering partnered with Craig Lucas in a powerful song pleading for help from the South African government. 

Joanie brought me to Tafelsig, you decide where you fit in and what you're going to do, but this is the daily reality, not just for people in Tafelsig, Mitchellsplain.

All they have is hope that somebody is going to feed them. And because the soup kitchens have been running, Joanie asked please can we do a little film.

We need something different to get attention of people, to get the awareness to government. 

Marc Lottering then penned "What About the People?", featuring Craig Lucas.

I want to be a Video Star! Caspar Lee shares his advice for budding YouTube creators

10 September 2020 10:53 AM

It's not an easy road to YouTube fame, but it is possible.

The Flash Drive's Carl Wastie called on British-South African YouTuber Casper Lee to share his advice for parents who are faced with their Gen Z kids wanting to be full-time YouTubers.

"It's easier than it was when I started, just because the technology has improved but when it comes to actually build it up to a point where you can do it full-time as a career, I think it becomes more difficult because there are a lot more talented people now that make YouTube videos," Casper explains.

The 26-year old started his YouTube channel back when the platform was less saturated. Now creators are competing with Hollywood stars and media corporations.

What advice does Casper Lee have for budding video stars? Listen to the full interview, in the audio clip!
