The Gay & Lesbian Network recently hosted KZN’s Got Talent as a lead up to their main event of the year, the Pink Mynah festival.
The auditions were held at the Pietermaritzburg Tourism Hub over two days, and many hopeful individuals and groups entered with high hopes. Many of whom were full of nerves, while others were excited to be given the opportunity to showcase their various talents.
There were singers, beat boxers, poets, and a range of dancing spanning from hip-hop to ballet. Those who went through to the finals performed on stage at the Pietermaritzburg City Hall, while their families and friends supported them from the audience.
The winner of the group act was a male choir called ‘Vocal Brothers’ who awed the judges with their melody and harmonizing. The winner of the individual act was Eric Majola (”Ntatheli ka Ndaba”), who performed a moving piece of poetry, told with great passion through the eyes of freedom fighter Hector Peterson. The Gay & Lesbian Network would like to send their heartfelt congratulations to the winners, who walked away with R5000 each.
The judges for KZN’s Got Talent were Thobeka Bhengu, Mark White, Fionna Donna Young, Charl Landsberg and Push Nqelenga.
