South African neo-soul singer, songwriter, presenter and actor, Gift Gwe is ready to welcome runners home at the Totalsports Ladies Race in Stellenbosch on Friday, 09 August 2013.
South Africans fell in love with Gift Gwe during the third season of South African Idols (2005), when he tried out in this famous talent search. Runner up to Karin Kortje, Gift earned the adoration of thousands of fans throughout the country. It was clear just how singularly talented this Queenstown-born, Mosselbay-raised singer was.
“It’s always a pleasure to sing for women,” laughs Gift. “This will be the third time that I work with this event, my first time having been at the Johannesburg race in 2008 and at the Durban race in July this year. Performing at the Totalsports Ladies Race in Durban was such a fresh experience. With just over 6000 women excited about life, what a great sight to see. Being on stage was just the cherry on top. This year I also had the privilege of doing the countdown to the start in Durban. I was overwhelmed by the vibe. I am really excited to perform in Stellenbosch as it is closer to home which means I’ll know my crowd and can plan my performance accordingly,” says Gift.
Participants can choose between a 5km run/fun walk and a 10km run/fun walk.
