Platinum selling artist Donald shut down Carnival City on Friday recording his first ever #RedMicXperience Live DVD. Busiswa was the first artist on stage setting the mood, followed by other supporting acts such as, Naakmusiq & Shimza. The event was pure success! Donald took to the stage to perform and keep over 3 500 attendees entertained with surprise acts from Euphonik, Heavy K, Black Motion, Prince Kaybee & Dream Team.
The likes of Boity, SK, Khanya Mkangisa, Natasha Tahane & Latoya Makhene among others, were spotted singing along to some of Donald’s popular hit tracks.
We had a quick chat with Donald after the show to find out a few things from him.
Was this the dream?
Yes definitely! This was the dream. I think it really takes a lot out of one to think about something and put it into action and I am so glad I had the energy and the support from everybody to be able to take that thought and make it a reality.
Planning such a massive event, did you experience any challenges along the way?
I had crazy challenges, when you do something of this magnitude you are always going to have challenges especially when you are working with a lot of people. Managing people is one of the most difficult things to do, but I am really happy that everything came together.
Did you expect such a great turnout?
The event was packed! I was so happy that so many people came to the event. I’ve been watching Twitter the whole week and noticed that people were actually talking about the #RedMicXperience. People showed me so much love and support. We filled up Carnival City and we killed it! It was such a beautiful party, everyone was in the mood to have a good time.
Would you say you received support from the industry?
Yes. Everybody was willing to support, having Heavy K come through, Naakmusiq, Shimza, Euphonik, Busiswa, Black Motion, Prince Kaybee as well as Dream Team was so special to me. This was all planned as a surprise for the fans, we planned all of this from day one.
Are we going to see more of these kind of productions from you?
People are definitely going to see more of this in the future. This was an opportunity for me to say to everybody that this is the beginning, the beginning of a lot to come! I plan to take it to a different level from here. I’m just happy that this worked out.
Should we expect another Album soon?
Another album is possible, you know with albums you have to take your time and make sure that the music is right but I am always going to make sure that I give people the music. I am not going to say I am working on it right now since the #RedMicXperience took most of my time but I am always working on new music.
Lastly..Is there a release date for the DVD?
There is no specific release date for the DVD but I will keep people updated about everything on my social media pages. We are just trying to make sure that we deliver a product of the right class.
