I learnt that the key to success is to raise your own energy; when you do,people will naturally be attracted to you. And when they show up, bill them.
I learnt this from a Zimbabwean brother here in South Africa. He doesn’t know me and he has never met me. I have been following him and his series of premium events he holds for people of various nationalities living in the diaspora and giving them an uptown taste of luxury, security and a good life in the heart of Sandton, Johannesburg.
He calls these, the 263 nights.
I wanted so much, to know more about these nights that yesterday, I got hold of him and we had a very insightful interview.
263 nights was started as a small gathering of friends and relatives a year ago, and it has widely grown to be known as a source of premium uptown entertainment.
On Saturday the 27th of January one of Africa’s most celebrated and multi award winning bands, Mafikizolo will perform at 263 nights in Sandton, at Sankayi lounge and club ,backed by some of the finest Johannesburg’s DJs .
The event is billed to start at 10pm and will also be a celebration of Mafikizolo’s 20th anniversary in music. This show marks the inaugural show of the year before 263 nights embarks on a world tour from 9-31 March to Dubai, China, Malaysia and Cyprus. This is going to be BIG!
