WIN Tickets For The Harlem Globetrotters In SA

I played basketball when I was a kid. I was never anything special, but I wasn’t bad and my school actually managed to get into the finals of a tournament in my city at one stage, I liked playing and it was the Harlem Globetrotters that I liked watching the most.

I’d spend ages watching them online, but was never lucky enough to actually get to watch them play, however that is all going to change in July :D

Harlem Globetrotters Anyway… Long story short, I’ve got two tickets to giveaway for one of the nights that the Globies are here, so you and a mate can go watch their basketball madness free of charge :)

To enter the competition is simple, just tweet me saying:

“Hey @YesWeCrann, I want go and watch the @GlobetrottersSA strut their stuff in *Insert preferred city here*! #GlobetrottersSA”

Heres a bit of what they do…

I can promise you that these guys put on one helluva show, and whether you see the Globies in Cape Town, Johannesburg or Durban, I know you’re going to have a great night!

*Competition closes at 17h00 on Friday May 15th*

Thor Rixon – Fuk Bread

It’s the music video that pretty much everyone is talking about right now, so i figured that it should probably find itself a permanent home on here too. Thor Rixon, who is wildly creative and ridiculously talented has got a brand new track and insane music video to go with it.

I’ve played a few of his previous singles on my show, and it’s always been a trip. If you want to hear some more of his stuff, check out his Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/thorrixon

Just in case you were wondering, this is my exact brand of weird. Love it:

I can see Tim Noakes making this his get-out-of-bed-in-the-morning song! #FukBread

30,000 – Shelflife Help Me Thank You!

30,000!? I cannot believe that 30,000 people (give our take a few hundred bots) actually care about what I have to say. It’s madness.

I came to South Africa a few years ago with about 120 followers and literally zero reputation. Now, thanks a whole heap of tweets and a bit of graft I’ve managed to hit an amount that I never thought possible, and that, my friends, is all because of you lot. And I wanted to say thanks.

Bafana Bafana At The Movies – AFCON 2015

On January 17th the 2015 African Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea will begin. Bafana Bafana go into this tournament not having only qualified, but done so without losing a single game in qualification. An incredible feat for Shakes Mashaba’s men.

I try not to take life too seriously, and for that reason I decided to use my ‘creative’ talents to rework a few movie titles in honour of the South African national team and some of their players.

Get Some Brand New Kicks With Shelflife!

Shelflife

If you follow me on Twitter and/or Instagram then you’ll know how much I love my trainers. I would wear crappy clothes for the rest of my life if it meant I could rock the latest pair of Air Max every day, but let’s be honest, our wallets don’t always agree.

Shelflife, I’m sure, don’t need any introduction. They’re the best place to go to if you want the most recent releases in South Africa, whether it’s Nike, Adidas or whoever that tickles your fancy. It’s no coincidence that Kendrick Lamar and Chris Brown have stopped in not so long ago. Continue Reading

Do Your Bit With KFC, Add Hope…

Add Hope's beneficiaries...

Add Hope’s beneficiaries…

Fast food chains get a bad rap around the world, but KFC’s Add Hope campaign is something that I think plenty of companies in general can aspire to.

They’ve raised a whopping R210 million (and rising!) over the last six years, and KFC’s Add Hope currently feeds over 70 000 children every month, through 90 carefully selected national and community beneficiaries. I mean come on, that’s impressive hey? Continue Reading

Introducing… Castle Lite Lime

I’m not the sort of manly man that will say no to a flavoured beer or a flavoured cider, I like stuff that tastes nice. Whether it’s the amber nectar or pink and fluorescent, if it’s good, it’s good.

I like Castle Lite, it’s one of South Africa’s many good beers and the ‘Lite’ means that I can feel less fat if I drink more than five of them. Gotta watch my weight ;)

Now, South Africa’s coldest beer brand introduces a new member to the Extra Cold family – Castle Lite Lime.

Youth? What Youth? – A Breakdown Of Bafana’s Footballing Future

Youth development in South Africa, or lack thereof, is often blamed for Bafana Bafana’s failure to win tournaments, as well as the lack of continental trophies making their way to Mzansi. The Bafana coach is urged to field young players in the national team, but how can he show belief in youth if his PSL colleagues, the club coaches, aren’t doing the same? In this feature I looked into how much South African teams believe in their youngsters, and why SuperSport United and Ajax Cape Town are on the right track.Line Continue Reading

SA Youngsters Impress At COPA Coca-Cola®

Guys, it’s time for one last post about the talented youngsters that Coca-Cola® took over to Samba Land, Brazil, for the opening game of the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the COPA Coca-Cola® tournament.

The COPA Coca-Cola® programme not only gave them the chance of a lifetime, it gave them many memorable experiences that they wouldn’t have had before. Their first flight, a welcome party and the chance to walk out onto a World Cup field was just the start… Then it was time to show off their skills. Mzansi's COPA Coca Cola Stars Continue Reading
