Thanks for the link.

I managed to get an mp3 rip of this from a friend in Tanzania.  Got this on the ipod.  I had the original album which I bought from a record store in the Golden Acre, Cape Town in 1992.  Unfortunately I lost it.

Hi

Africasgateway (which started in 1997) will always exist as long as I have the means to fund it. 

The story of AG is a very long and complicated one which I hope to put to words one day.  But if there is anyone out there who thinks they can take it to the next level and make it benefit the Hip Hop community I would like to meet them.

Sports Arena / Bafana vs Sierra Leone
« on: June 22, 2008, 10:27:25 AM »
Just read this on IOL, a sports write up that's quite entertaining actually

Quote
South Africa 0

Sierra Leone 0

Bafana Bafana plumbed new depths on Saturday with an utterly pathetic display that leaves them with a snowball's chance in hell of making it to the 2010 African Nations Cup.

Brazilian Joel Santana stood clueless on the touchline at the final whistle, having made a total mess of South Africa's qualifying campaign, even if he did arrive on short notice.

Carlos Alberto Parreira must take a share of the blame too, for recommending a man who looks more and more like a first-time swimmer drowning in the choppy waters of international football.

"One team came here to play and the other didn't," said Santana afterwards, merely showing off his naivety.






Certainly, Sierra Leone came here with one intention - a goalless draw, and parked a proverbial bus in front of their goal.

This is not a defensive machine like Germany, however, or even Nigeria, but a side ranked 163rd in the world, a side that has won one away game this century.

Yet they have now kept out Bafana for 180 minutes in the space of a week. No wonder coach Ahmed Kanu looked like a man who had just won the lottery - and then married his childhood sweetheart - at the final whistle.

South Africa had to win on Saturday to keep any realistic hopes alive of qualifying for Angola. And Santana cannot really be blamed for fielding the same side that had thumped Equatorial Guinea 4-1 just two week's earlier.

Yet when the plan did not work, when Bafana could not find a way through Sierra Leone, Santana appeared to have no 'Plan B'.

Kagiso Dikgacoi and MacBeth Sibaya are two essentially defence-minded midfielders, whether or not Dikgacoi netted twice against Equatorial Guinea. Yet Santana kept both on the field for 70 minutes, even though for the whole game Sierra Leone regarded attacking as a total waste of time.

Santana made the utterly deranged claim that Sierra Leone had "dangerous forwards".

Thembinkosi Fanteni, too, was kept on the field for over an hour, despite playing like an amateur who has never touched a ball in his life.

A coach can only do so much, of course. And Bafana's players, who spurned chance after chance in the first half, have to take their share of responsibility.

The Brazilian and Bafana were also a little unlucky when an own-goal in the second half was disallowed for reasons best-known to Cameroonian referee Raphael Evehe Divine and his a**istants.

But mainly, Santana looked totally out of his depth, and Safa must be wondering if they have made a terrible mistake.

There was a far better crowd here on Saturday than for the previous game against Equatorial Guinea, though probably only because the authorities opened the gates to the public a few minutes after kick off.

Bafana, however, were unable to grab an early goal to settle their nerves, as they had against Equatorial Guinea.

Teko Modise did not look fully fit and failed to grab hold of the game, while Bafana's pa**ing was worryingly inconsistent.

And when chances did come their way, Bafana were wasteful beyond belief. After 18 minutes, Tshepo Masilela latched onto Surprise Moriri's pa**, and sprinted away from the Leone Stars defence. However, amazingly, he elected to cross, and the ball cleared Fanteni at the far post.

Fanteni, meanwhile, was having a nightmare of a game, unable to hold up the ball from Sierra Leone's physical central defenders, Umaru Bangura and Ibrahim Koroma.

When he did escape their attention, he completely missed Moriri's near-post cross.

Moriri, Fanteni and Dikgacoi then all spurned good opportunities in a goalmouth scramble, before Bryce Moon's header sent Moriri clear, but he toe-poked wide.

The Sundowns striker has missed a hatful of chances over the past week, and if Bafana have no one better than he and Fanteni, Benni McCarthy aside, the situation is truly desperate.

SuperSport's Katlego Mashego showed signs of what he can do in the second half, coming on and at least testing the agility of Sierra Leone's young goalkeeper Christian Caulker.

But Bafana were hardly carving Sierra Leone apart. In fact, Kanu's side became more a**ured as the game went on. Bafana just looked more and more desperate.

South Africa (4-4-1-1): Khune; Moon, Fransman, Mokoena, Masilela; Modise, Dikgacoi, Sibaya (Chabangu 70), Pienaar (Buckley 84); Moriri, Fanteni (Mashego 62)

Sierra Leone (4-5-1): Caulker; Kanu (Cole 73), Bangura, Koroma Woobay; Kpaka (Bah 56), Barlay, Kargbo, Kallon Suma; Kamara

Referee: Raphael Evehe Divine (Cameroon)

Cautions: Woobay 44, Kamara 45, Kallon 90; Fransman 49, Mokoena 90

General Discussion / Eff a Complex
« on: June 16, 2008, 08:19:02 PM »
When I moved to Joburg I made an error and got a townhouse in a complex.  I hate it.  I'm moving this month into a house where I can get dobermans and have my cats shit where they want without old people complaining.

hi Tate

It was put up on Saturday morning, you can get it here:
http://www.africasgateway.com/content/blogcategory/176/66/

I still need to build the links to the recommended podcasts on the page, such as Hiphocalypse and 20/20 etc (will also fetch the rss feeds from it so as you post your own podcasts it will appear).  Looks like I will be able to put up about 2 to 3 podcasts up a week at this rate.  Currently moving to a house (out of a god forsaken townhouse complex) which means now I can invite people over and do live interviews etc.  Can't wait.

we can do a producer's special as well.  getting ahead of myself here.  yes it's been a long time coming, but the past 2 years has been hard, the nature of my job has changed recently which means I now have more quality time to pursue things such as this.  another thing, if members on this site, such as yourself Rob and Tate, I know you got podcasts, we will put them links on the AG podcast page as well if you wish. so that users can download them from there as well.  let me know if you interested (PM me).

Hi everyone

Thanks to those who have submitted their tracks so far.  Of course we cannot guarantee that all tracks will get played because we got around 68 mp3's emailed in 2 days, but we will do our best to ensure that the good ones get through.  Podcast # 1 will be recorded tommorow night, and uploaded on Saturday, will also feature an interview with "can't name him right now".  First edition will run for about 1 hours.  We will start with a podcast a week and then see if we can increase the frequency. 

Your tracks can be emailed to:  podcasthiphop@gmail.com

Your drops aka shoutouts can be emailed to:  podcasthiphop@gmail.com

Also, try your hand at making a jingle for the AG Podcast and send it to:  podcasthiphop@gmail.com it would be great to hear what you can come up with.

Done, each user now has a sex symbol located on their profile.  For those who don't have one, go to Profile --> Forum Profile Information and then update your gender.

hope that helps.
