O-BOMA! TO FEATURE ZUKA (article first published : 2008-03-8)

Kicking the popular live show O-Boma into action on March 10 is KB who will once again be spotlighting hot original talent. This time it comes in the form of Zuka, who hails from Durban, another newcomer from the coastal town who has his eyes set on being the “next big thing” with his debut album Until Further Notice. Adding to the hardcore musical flavour of the show is DJ Sthetho who will be blazing the wheels of steel during the 411 session – and KB will seal the show by asking the viewers, “Who rules the roost?”

Are African artists experiencing boom time or not? That’s the question that Rachel will be throwing out to the O-Boma audience on March 11 and it’s sure to provoke yet another riveting debate. DJ Soul T will be spinning the decks on the O-Boma 411 mix.

Mauritius celebrates four decades of independence on March 12 and O-Boma is going “island style” for the day in support of this landmark event in the country’s history.

On March 13, Nzinga takes us to the movies to profile the new Rambo film. It sees Sylvester Stallone reprise his role as John Rambo who this time around joins a group of mercenaries to venture into war-torn Burma, and rescue a group of Christian aid workers who were kidnapped by the ruthless local infantry unit. In the spirit of the film’s release, O-Boma viewers can debate whether movie sequels are worth watching.

On March 14, the O-Sessions are back and again the tension rises as two local MCs go head to head live and viewers decide who will be the O-sessions MC King.

Viewers should not forget to log onto the O-Boma Social Network to check out the “theme of the day” prior to the show – they can then register their comments, many of which will be featured by the VJ live during the show.
