Personal message

 


My name is Ntombizodwa Mashinini and I am 51 years old, I stay in Duduza Nigel at Ekurhuleni, Gauteng. I am a musician, singer, producer, performer and a songwriter for 30 years now, and I am also a Founder and Director of Shepherd Music And TV Production.

I am raising funds to shoot a documentary.

The documentary is about the Mghashiyo and Mbhaqanga Music Veterans, who started this music industry in early 60's. They want to tell their stories of pain and suffering in the music industry. They are sick, homeless, no money to feed themselves and their families, and when they die they die as paupers. Their music no more getting airplay that's why they don't get Royalties anymore, some they don't even get Government grant because of their age. This is the only job that they know and they've been doing it for their whole lives, over 50+ years. They use to earn R1.50 per show when they performed 10 shows, 4 shows is for transport, food, and accommodation. They will get paid 6 shows which will be R9.00 per salary. Sometimes they use to take advance for their needs, when they arrived at home the is no money. Who can survive with that kind of money, by that time they tried because things were very cheap but now they can't survive, now that there is money no one wants to do anything about them, that is why we want to do a documentary for them to share their pain for them to get help like anybody else.
