Phalaphala FM’s station manager, Freddy Sadiki said: “Phalaphala FM has always been part of the Royal Heritage Festival since it’s inception and we do not regret this decision.

“As a station, we have always been at the forefront of projects that seek to empower our audience, be it job creation, crime prevention, intellectual empowerment, health awareness and poverty alleviation.

“We have abridged our approach to various outreach projects to what we term “Phalaphala FM to the rescue”. We believe the Royal Heritage Festival fits perfectly well into our thinking as it is not only confined to entertainment.”

Freddy continues: “We wish to, other things remaining equal, grow with this brand because it empowers your ordinary woman on the street who sells fruit, vegetables or food; moreover it has the potential to grow the local tourism industry. We invite everyone to come and witness history in the making. Phalaphala FM, Always there for you – RI NA NWI MISI YOTHE!”

Phalaphala FM Royal Gospel and Heritage Festival organizer Shandukani Nesengani said: “The Phalaphala FM Royal Gospel And Heritage Festival has been the apple of our eyes, seeing it’s growth and how it had placed Thohoyandou on the map has been fulfilling. Nothing beats the unity of the people of Venda as they have been welcoming and enjoying with us all these years. This year promises to be bigger and better with a solid line-up and over two days some of the greatest artists that our country has to offer. A big thank you to His Majesty King Mphemphu Ramabulana, Phalaphala FM and SABC 2 for allowing us to reach our full potential.”
