Newtown Junction, the mall that celebrates South African culture hosted the International Music Festival Fete de la Musique for yet another year. On the same weekend the winner of the 2017 Vodacom NXT LVL talent search Zethembiso (Zethe) Mdletshe was officially announced as the Face of Newtown Junction mall.
Newtown Junction saw it fitting to partner with the young Kwa-Zulu Natal born artist who loves South Africa and to celebrate what being a South African means.
“We have chosen to officially announce this partnership specifically in Youth month during the Fete de la musique festival mainly because Zethe is the combination of both. Fête de la Musique has become one of the country’s greatest cultural events and an international phenomenon and Zethe is a young ambitious South African who went all out to get herself a career in the music industry. Her talent and music style is enthusiastic and widely celebrated” – Heloise van Niekerk, Asset Manager at Atterbury.
Zethe completed her Degree in music, majoring in Jazz, at the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal and graduated in 2016. She moved to Johannesburg shortly after her Vodacom NXT LVL win to pursue her music career even further.
“I’m thrilled to be part of a mall that celebrates South African culture. When they approached me they told me that I represent what the mall stands for. I’m happy because I was chosen based on what I stand for and my talent as a young South African” – Zethe.
