Published

At the heart of the Free State lies the historic, hospitable city of Bloemfontein, known as the ‘City of Roses’. Proud host city to the MACUFE Festival, Bloemfontein is an Afrikaans word that means ‘flower fountain’. The city is known for its diverse tourism offerings: culture and heritage, adventure, nightlife, restaurants and scenic beauty.

As MACUFE’s reputation as a must attend show on South Africa’s event calendar has grown, so too has Bloemfontein’s profile as a host city and tourist destination. Music lovers, tourists and famous personalities are attending the festival by the numbers and are discovering that music and festivities aside, there is so much more to see and do in the historically rich city and province.

In recent years, South African Tourism has played host to journalists attending the Macufe festival and other major events happening in the country. The platform is apt for demonstrating the things one can do when in the Free State in addition to attending the festival.

“There are indications that MACUFE will soon make it into the list of top three South African arts festivals. And to cap it all, the tours offered by South African Tourism in between the festival of the historic and beautiful city of Bloemfontein put an icing on the entire unforgettable experience,” says Chuks Nwanne, a Lifestyle and Entertainment correspondent at the Guardian, Nigeria.

This year’s Macufe celebration boasts an impressive line-up featuring internationally celebrated South African singer Lira, Afro pop group Mafikizola, jazz maestro Huge Masekela, rapper AKA and gospel singer Rebecca Malope. International artists such as Keri Hilson and Anthony Hamilton are also confirmed to take to the stage.

There are a number of shows taking place during the week starting with the arts and crafts programme. MACUFE 2013 also offers a music festival, which comprises of a divas concert, a rock concert, an indoor jazz concert, a gospel concert, a comedy show and the MACUFE Cup when Kaizer chiefs take on Bloemfontein Celtic.

The Macufe festival is the place where culture, arts and entertainment meet in South Africa. For it to be held in a province so drenched in history and culturally relevant is perfectly suited.

Upon my recent travel around the USA 2018,

As I was on my way to Phoenix I fortunately sat next to one kind Man, As we chatted he took me though an adventure of his business. I also shared to him who I was which got him overwhelmed and upon off boarding the flight we shared contacts and promised to reach out each other again.

Yes we did when I met him again In Oregon, we talked about passions in which I told him of what I do beyond music. I love sports and – Wakiso Giants FC my team that I have loved and supported regardless!!

He picked a lot of interest and asked me what best he can contribute to us.

On more talk he mentioned that he had a bus company and asked Whether giving WAKISO GIANTS one would make a change. I was so happy and immediately reached the administration of this team because he only gave a bus to the team and wasn’t responsible to ship and pay tax for it.

Long story short the Bus is finally here and today morning I officially handed it to the team together with the FUFA president Mr. Moses Magogo

I am so proud that we have ability that we can exploit if given a chance. PURPLE SHARKS – Enjoy your bus LEONE ISLAND MUSIC EMPIRE” Chameleone affirmed.
