Naima Mclean – My Happy

Category: Blog

I’m looking for that burst from the inside out kind of happy,

That nothing even matters kind of happy,

That quite and content, clap along kind of happy,

And when I find you happy…I’ll feel it.


What’s your happy?

Randlords Event: Said we looking for a Hero!

Category: BlogGuest Blog

Naima Randlords

“Freedom is coming tomorrow!”When the cast of Sarafina belted out these words, it struck a chord with many South African’s involved and affected by the struggle. This is why I felt it fitting to have this as the tag line of my facebook and twitter promotion of the Heroes Event held at Randlords echoing Naima’s exciting new single Hero ft AKA. I personally was unaware when Freedom Day was or what exactly one was expected to do on the day and I know I was not alone in this sentiment.

I have a theory that, today’s youth speaks a very different language from the youth of yesta-year . One of my good friends has a tattoo below her collar bone that reads ‘A luta continua’ which our Mozambican and Angolan cousins translate to mean ‘The struggle continues’...

Kitcheners; The Journey that is Naima

Category: Guest Blog

Naima kitcheners 2

Kitcheners has got to be among the top venues in Joburg, if your looking for an unassuming, laid back place that stimulates all the senses at once. We had began promoting the event two weeks in advance by making as much noise as possible via facebook , twitter and word of mouth. Promotions and the hype surrounding the event reached fever pitch a couple of days beforehand as we liked statuses, shared links, mentions, retweeted and ensured everyone we knew would be there. By Friday the 12th April 2013, we gathered the troops and headed to Bramfontein. Being the punctual individuals we are (*side eye*) we had enough time to spare to drop in at a friends exhibition held in the glorious Maboneng district, then headed to kitcheners Cavalry bar by 9pm.

The first call to action was the ba...

Things I Wish – My declaration poem!

Category: Blog

Things I Wish

I wish this god given gift of spoken word generated the power to inspire people lives and call to action the greatness of human spirits.

I wish the sky was a jazz-like orchestra and the trees watching me over sang soulful songs of wisdom I needed to hear in any given moment …and every now and then … a hip-hop pop beat.

I’d break out into my alter ego moonlit dance and let out a part of me I’m yet to discover. And yes I’d be dolled up from head to toe with “a nobody can stop me” strut…

I wish true love would find me wrap his beautifully built hands around me and tell that he has no intention of ever letting go. That he was absolutely clear and though doubt and fear is perfectly normal, it would never rule him...

AUTHOR: Naima McLean

I can’t even begin to explain the growth process I’ve been through leading up to the Cape Town International Jazz festival. I think I can safely say I’m addicted to challenges.. My whole life I’ve been overly ambitious and find my self having to fast equip myself with the right tools not only to survive but succeed.

Its the day before the show and although I’m still to perform and this is only the beginning of the journey with still so much to learn, I feel a sense of accomplishment that I’ve come this far. I have completed recording my debut album – Things I Wish – having worked with some real incredible musicians. My musical directors RJ Benjamin and Chadwin Alexander were truly sent from the heavens!

My management team – Gerrard Foster and Ghairunisa Galeta – have h...
