If you live abroad and tend to get a bit emotional when thinking back to the evenings in the Bushveld with potjiekos simmering over the fire, then Worldwide’s World Guide is just what you need. The World Guide will somewhat suppress the longing back home; even though it’s not a campfire in the Bushveld, it’s close enough. Each week Worldwide chooses a business from the guide to appear in the Spotlight. This week’s business in the Spotlight is Lekker Stuff Entertainment in New Zealand.
There are few things as enjoyable as turning on the radio and hearing music in a language that you grew up with and that is exactly the type of familiarity that Lekker Stuff Entertainment’s Karisma Nel wanted to bring to the South African expats in New Zealand. She did it so well that Lekker Stuff Entertainment walked away with the title of Best Community Music Program in any Language at the 2018 New Zealand Radio Awards.
Music is the universal language that everyone understands and it has the power to bring communities together, that is why it is so important to support initiatives like Lekker Stuff Entertainment who do their part in bringing people together to form a community.
