Songs and Stories for my Son

Emile YX? will release his ninth solo album, Songs and Stories for my Son on Saturday February 24 at The Hive in Muizenberg, at 7pm. Emile YX? will perform some of the original lullabies and traditional Bushman stories he wrote for his son, Kai-Jeevan who will be three on March 3. Emile has a teaching diploma and finds it important to start the rehumanisation of Africans through “Afrocation” from birth, instead of talking about decolonisation at university level, when it may be too late. The performance will start with a screening of the work of Heal The Hood, which was established in Lavender Hill, at 7pm. Emile will later be joined by Mixed Mense and will then make space for younger artists to showcase their skills. The DJ for the evening will be DJ realRozzano X. Entry costs R50 and the CD costs R100 or R130 for both. Call Emile at 074 411 1968 or email to book.
