WRITER’S NOTE

Observer on Saturday - - Lifestyle & Entertainment - WITH: Ayanda Dlamini

I t’s such a beau­ti­ful Saturday read­ers, an­other strik­ing read of our most loved L& E. Today we are cel­e­brat­ing the young teen who scooped Miss Teen Swazi­land crown last week­end; Tyra John­son, from Jabez High School. It was by no doubt that she would win the crown as her con­fi­dence was on an­other level not to men­tion her beauty. She was crowned along­side 15-year-old Nina Zwane who scoped sec­ond princess and 16-year-old Emihle Dz­imba as her first princess. Read more about John­son on the op­po­site page. On the same page, we have the lady be­hind Miss Teen SD beauty pageant So­nia Sil­ver. She tells L& E that pageants to her are gen­er­ally de­signed to con­trib­ute pos­i­tively to the de­vel­op­ment of the con­tes­tants and she is plan­ning on build­ing the pageant into a sus­tain­able pro­gramme in or­der to fur­ther sup­port the top con­tes­tants en­ter­ing each re­spec­tive year as well as sup­port its fu­ture so­cial out­reach pro­grammes. You can in­dulge about So­nia on the same page. Guess what? The wait is fi­nally over for FNB Smooth Fest fans as it has been re­vealed that the fest will held be this year with an ex­cit­ing line-up such as Zonke, Jimmy Dludlu, No­ma­lun­gelo, Floewe, Amanda Black who will make her de­but per­for­mance in the coun­try af­ter be­ing nom­i­nated at the BET awards few a months ago. This was re­vealed at the launch which was held at Nkonyeni Golf Es­tate on Thurs­day. It was also re­vealed that Somizi will be com­ing again as he will be the pro­gramme di­rec­tor of the show. Turn to page 4 and 5 and read more about the stars who will be ser­e­nad­ing us at the Smooth Fest this year. I must say mu­sic ap­pre­ci­a­tors should quickly get their tick­ets be­fore they are sold out. Till next week, en­joy.
