Following up on the SABC post from this morning, my daughter was at a TV shoot yesterday with Bryan Habana and PROTEX. They were filmed washing hands and so on. I asked her if they told them when it will be on TV and she said “Tonight, on esabezee one” I had to control myself from pissing in my pants with laughter. Shows you how “South African” my household is. My kids don’t even know what SABC television is…..
So, in order to educate my kids on things other than MULTICHOICE/DSTV we decided to watch some esabezee tv last night. We happened across S A’s Got Talent. And wow we do. Some brilliant performers of all kinds. An Afrikaaner of note playing the squash box, a white boy beetboxer, some pantsula dancers, a couple of singing tweenies and so on.
The Mrs. and I decided that our country is so diverse it’s amazing. An afrikaans opera singer singing in Italian as if he has all his life. We even have our own Popppie Boyle, a 50 year old koeksister baking NG Kerk going amazingly good singer.
You guys should give the show a watch, even Ian Von Memerty has found his place on TV.
