Waar's ’it lekker?
Well, if you were out and about this weekend, Hanover Park would be your answer.
Mense were feeling the festive gees at the fourth annual Hanover Park Street Festival.
“Our people deserve a platform,” event organiser and Ward councillor Antonio van der Rheede told the Daily Voice.
The Young Sounds’ lead singer, Mymoena Jooste, 55, belted out Donna Summers’ Last Dance after a fashion show organised by The Miss Hanover Park initiative.
Alistair Izobell also took to the stage, singing lekker old school jams, and Hanover Park was then filled with the saxy sounds of Don Vino’s
He got the crowd in a lekker mood as he kicked off his set with Bruno Mars’ hit, Versace On The Floor.
He performed alongside his long-time friend and fellow muso, bass player Jonathan Rubain.
The duo’s performance included a love song battle.
They even serenaded Auntie Gaafsa Richards, one of the area’s oldest residents.
The 99-year-old said she’s only had “one berk” and “stel nie belang in daai dinge nie”, but changed her tune to “jy kan maak met my wat jy wil” after Don played James Ingram’s Find 100 Ways.
Speaking to the Daily Voice, Jonathan Rubain, who hails from Hanover Park, said: “A few negative people create a negative image of the area, but there is so much positive things about the place.
“Benni McCarthy is from here. Vicky Sampson is from here. So, it’s a breeding ground for people doing amazing things.”
Following the switching on of the festive lights, the jol showed no signs of winding down, but as Alen, The Car Guard said, “Is mos f*k**l, is festive.”
