Oscar Tee is unstoppable!

South African artist Oska Tee returns with ‘THE UNSTOPPABLE ALBUM’. This is Oska Tee’s fIfth studio album. It is a follow up to his previous albums: The Ultimate album 2005; The Unique album 2008 and The Utmost album 2010 and The Upstage album 2018. Oska Tee brings 12 new tracks through this new offering.

Oska Tee, born Batandwa Oscar Tyumre in Mthatha in the Eastern Cape, started singing at an early age at home, school and in church like most musicians. He has been in the music industry for almost 30 years and has worked alongside many big names in the music industry including one of Africa’s biggest music icons Brenda Fassie with whom he did over 100 shows within one year as a road-show manager in 1998 – 99. Oska Tee also worked alongside other big names like Patricia Majalisa, whom she managed for ten years, wrote four songs in her album Epatini in 2010 and featured her in his previous album the upstage in a song I heard them. He also still works with Majalisa band. Oska also managed By4 and did backing vocals for popular groups Splash, Dalom Kids, Nomuntu Kappa, Suthukazi Arosi and Mercy Pakela, to name but a few.

Due to the world music market becoming smaller and smaller because of technology, Oska Tee decided to produce an album that will accommodate a wider range of audiences globally. Though staying true to his African roots and to the South African bubblegum music sounds that inspired him in the late 80’s, Oska Tee added a lot of different influences that have also had a huge followership in South Africa in his teenage years. That includes: Rock’n roll, country, funk and reggae.

EMSINI is a house disco track, in which Oska Tee conveys a message that regardless of the many losses of their colleagues as artists, they as survivors will continue in the game in remembrance of their fallen loved ones. UBOMI is another hard-core dance tune and its message is that each of us in the world gets a turn to shine, it just happens in a different time for each of us. LENGOMA, inspired by Brenda & the big dudes 80’s hit Promises, is also a dance tune, against tribalism, xenophobia and racism. EBUSUKU, a modern Afro-soul love song, featuring a young dude Frans CEO is a beautiful mid-tempo groove, a love at first sight story. NDIYAKUTHANDA is a fusion of rock and disco. Oska Tee shares with a loved one how only love can fill the void inside a man and not fame. It is a great all age song. HAPPY MAN is a tribute song to Oska’s fallen colleague and friend. It is a fusion of disco reggae and Afro-pop with a country music touch. BOY AND A DREAM is a Caribbean reggae piece, telling a story of tough times growing up and how a blessing of a grandmother helped through it all. KONDELELANI is a hard-core disco track with its message dedicated to all the people of the world to persevere and that COVID-19 like other pandemics will fade and life will be back to normal if we adhere to regulations. This one’s music was inspired by an old Dalom kids hit God of mercy. YOU’LL BE MY FRIEND is another hard-core disco tune, the kind of sound made famous by Benjamin Ball, Chicco, Splash and its a love song, produced by Nikie Nikie. UYINTO YONKE is an Afro-pop ballad song where SA meets Uganda. It is a beautiful love song featuring Ugandan singer Kim K. GOOD OLD TIMES is a fusion of funk and disco. Crafted beautifully, the song remembers good old times spent with a close friend and times of great music. STAY WITH ME is an interlude of an R&B/soul love song previously done by Oska Tee and Zeppra Safari in the 90’s.

All the songs have been composed, written and arranged by Oska Tee himself and are produced by Oska Tee and various experienced producers from within Africa’s music industry, including his long term producer Harold Loftazz Khoza and others such as Nikie Tjale (SA), Kim Kainja (Uganda), Collen Thulare (SA) and Dj Noza (Zimbabwe). From the 12 tracks on the Unstoppable album each song is different and unique.

The album has been released by the O’Tee productions in December 2020. It is available on iTunes, amazon, google-play, deezer, symphy@Africa, MTN music, and selected shops & Cd stalls around the country and neighboring countries. Oska Tee productions also does direct postage to fans who still prefer hard copies.

Miss radiant south africa’s finalist :Caring Zitha wants to raise funds to realise shelter in Oukasie

Hailing from the oldest township in the north west called Oukasie , a 21 year old Caring Zitha is ambitious , Caring and Oceanic.
“I’m all about making my journey in life a one to remember and not only by me but the lives I touch”. Said Zitha. 

Speaking to the publication she said “I’d like to see myself as a chameleon, because as much as I have to blend when needed I don’t change who I am(Blending with a tree doesn’t make the chameleon a tree).

“I believe in becoming the change I want to see. Modeling to me is about showing women from my community and the world at large that being a women is a superpower, it’s something no one can ever take from you. So I believe that my superpower is being able to blend without letting my environment change or define me”. She expressed. 

Speaking boldly about her dreams she said “I’m a dreamer but as soon as I walk up, I work on making them a reality. I was asked in Grade R what I wanted to be when I grow up and as much as being a doctor or teacher sounded right at 7 years I wanted to be a model.But if I was asked the same question 8 years ago I wanted to be a psychologist or take on any career to work and deal with people. My dream is to help people , I love working with people and modeling has given me that platform to be who I am and do what I love. Being on stage or being in a shelter or even just talking to someone is honestly a dream come true. Having someone smile because of something I did or said is what a I call a beautiful dream. I’m also a writer in the making so I dream to publish one day”. 

She also spoke about her greatest inspiration. ” my father is my inspiration because he is a person who believes in growth and equipping yourself with knowledge, to better your life and those around you. My dad never misses an opportunity to learn something new even from me. He has taught me that life is this beautiful journey worth taking and no matter who you are on this journey there times where you’ll need people so no man is an island. He is a person who would rather give his all to others, and that’s something I live by. I draw my inspiration and motivation from him. She added.

When asked about her plans beyond covid 19 she said ” Covid19 has taught me patience, to relax and let my hair blow in the wind. As much as its fun no one will walk my journey.  I want to step out of my comfort zone and make each dream I have a reality. I want to perform and record one of my poems, I want to have some published. Beyond Covid 19 I want to raise funds to open the first shelter in my community, I want to create a place of belonging. Winning Miss Radiant South Africa will allow me to get the funding for the shelter.

“I’ve always been a very shy and keep to myself type of person. I grew up having a very low self esteem,  low self confidence and I felt like I wasn’t beautiful or even good enough. I was told that I was too dark and too skinny  and in my mind I convinced myself that it was who I am. I overcame my shyness by smiling and I realized that I have a very unique dimple on my left.  When I smile I remind myself why I’m doing it, it reminds me that I’m worthy and I’m so beautiful. My dimple reminds me that I’m unique that’s special. Knowing my worth has really helped me understand that people dont determine who I am.

One item she can’t live without would be her cellphone. “It’s not really a necessity but it’s an item I always have with me. I keep my photos, documents and almost my life in it. Its the source of communication and I have apps which I use on daily basis like my Bible, social media apps, Microsoft word and so on. That makes my phone an item I can’t live without .

Miss Radiant South Africa is the first ground breaking Pageant which caters to all women.
“It makes us feel beautiful for being who we are, a women is the sparkle in her eyes, she is her curves and collar bones, she is her strength. This Pageant has allowed me to do everything I’ve ever dreamt of,  I want to achieve grown, as an individual I want to help open or fund a shelter home in my community. I want the young women in my community to see that women are strong, they are beautiful and they can achieve or do anything they want” said Zitha.

In her conclusion she said “When I submitted my application I was very nervous and still working on understanding my self worth. I submitted my application online then the wait started, they closed with 3000 applications I got even more nervous. But when I received an email with Congratulations I got excited and felt blessed , maybe a bit nervous too , it was like a step closer to the dream. As much as a certain load was lifted from my shoulders I carried another one and I started my journey of becoming the change I want to see. Even to this day I’m in the top 60 and still beyond excited like I’ve already won the title.

Mamsie Mashinini -Ndlalani:Revisit the mirror.

This book is about reaching to hurting people, highlighting the power of forgiveness. A true story of Mamsie Mashinini- Ndlalani’s transformation from a painful past to victory!

This is a must have! All the chapters gels well and the ones that speaks with volume to me would be : 1.1Pain of childhood sexual harassment

 1.2 Pain of double rape

1.3 Raising a rape child

 1.4 Surviving Kidnapping

 1.5 Surviving Gender Based Violence. 
This book struck me as a harven of healing process and it Opens Doors to the newness of life.

The gutzy author says she drew her strength from her heart attack. 
” in a way It opened my heart to the powerful Healing powers of God. With both my heart attacks doctors don’t know how I survived, but what I know are promises of God about Healing for us. ” 
“It makes me realize that life is too short, we need to use time given to us to fulfill our purpose in life not doing unnecessary things”. She said.
Her aspiration to write the book was through the rise of deaths of women in the hands of partners and rape that leaves survivors with a stigma that leads to suicide. “One young woman I was counseling wanted to castrate her own 4 year old son, because of rape. I saw the need to tell my story to give hope to these women. ” she added.
Sharing to the publication her Challenges she came across during her journey of writing. She said “I have experienced More pain as I revisited my painful past. I had to take a break , 2 years break started after 2 years then another 1 year’s break. There was also a lot of internal conflict. She sighed.

Tips on How she overcomed Challenges during her writing journey ?

1. Prayed a lot

2. Forgave myself and assured myself that I was not responsible for what happened to me

 3. Forgave all my perpetrators .

4. Started the process of healing. Faith played a major role to finally let go. 

When asked about the response from the public she said “Response is positive and there’s high demand and invitations to speak about GBV have started coming in, for example this Sunday (22.11.2020) I was a guest at Ekfm 103.6. I was emotionally paralyzed by the Listeners responses and getting a chance of telling their stories in quest for healing. On the 12th December I will be on an online tv station hosting me for their 16 days of non violence against Women and children”.

The response makes me feel like a doormat where all hurting people can come and wipe their shoes of the pains. All people because there’s a young man who told me crying that his baby mama raped him at varsity nobody believes him.” Said Mashinini-Ndlalani. 
In her conclusion she said ” i feel free and content that finally not only have I healed but others too will find their freedom”.
