The Lockdown Show

Personal message

My name is Masood Boomgaard. I am an entertainer from Durban, South Africa

Since the advent of COVID-19 the South African entertainment industry has been hit by considerable hardship. Like many South Africans, entertainers are self employed and are reliant on patronage from the public to survive and make ends meet.

Unfortunately, due to government restrictions put in place to stop the spread of corona virus, entertainers like myself and my colleagues have been unable to earn a living and all have suffered losses as a result of cancelled gigs. The silver lining is that through the wonders of technology we are still able to connect with and entertain fans, providing such much needed comic relief and joy in these difficult times.

The Lockdown Show will be a series of live streamed and online comedy and music shows available free to the public during 21 day covid 19 lockdown and perhaps beyond. I will be hosting the shows and hopefully will be able to support myself and fellow artists during this difficult through the generosity of the public

We have set a target that would allow us to help many of our colleagues in full time entertainment. Donations will greatly help ease the financial burden brought on by the COVID-19 crisis

We plan on hosting 10 online events over a 21 day period that will include comedy shows, music concerts and virtual dance parties. Funds will be used to cover data costs as well paying artists and online marketers.

Approximate cost per event is R50K incl of artist fees, marketing costs, data. We also hope to use some of the funds raised to assist in COVID-19 outreach operations such as shelters, feeding schemes etc.
