Tune in to PUMA South Africa’s IGTV this week at 6pm on tomorrow (Thursday, 6 August) and again at 10am on Friday, 7 August for two unmissable Select Sessions exclusives as PUMA kicks off its Womxn’s Month celebrations with singer/songwriter Boskasie and creative dynamo Sibu Mabena.
The Thursday beats are back with Select Sessions #StayHome Edition with Cape Town born Boskasie. Now a resident in Johannesburg, Boskasie is inspired by the nostalgic sounds of Cape Jazz having grown up in a family of Jazz music lovers including her trumpeter mother and vocalist dad. Boskasie couples eclectic melodies with deep soulful lyrics and her music takes the listener on a journey of discovery through her lens, which she categorises as “eclectic soul”.
PUMA South Africa continues the conversation with Select Stories – The Podcast on Friday at 10am. In this episode host Frypan Mfula is joined by guest Sibu Mabena. Sibu, who has a BA in Political Science and International Relations and founded Duma Collective, is a young creative with extensive experience in Event Production, Sponsorship Acquisition, Performance Direction and Street and Social Media Marketing.
Having worked on several live shows including the South African Music Awards, the South African Film and Television Awards, the Metro FM Awards and the MTV Base Africa Awards, her exposure serves as a creative springboard for a variety of communications platforms from linear and digital to stages and experiential events.
