Sensational, chart topping, 5-piece musical collective, MuzArt, have officially signed to Dream Team SA.
This signing sees MuzArt join some of SA’s top talent in various industries such as the likes of Terry Pheto, Tumisho Masha, Khuli Chana, Nkhensani Nkosi, Thembi Seete, Ms Cosmo and DJ Zan-D just to name a few.
“We are happy to be working with MuzArt. Their previous management, Mackay Communications, did a great job to get them here. We look forward to building this exciting, young brand into a household name” expresses Kgaugelo Maphai, Director at Dream Team SA.
MuzArt’s talents have not gone unnoticed. They received Metro FM and SAMA nominations this year, and their current single, Long Long Time, is on high rotation at numerous radio stations across the country and is featured on numerous local Top 10, Top 30 and Top 40 charts.
"Any one artist’s dream is for people to not only receive his or her work, but the ultimate is having people believe in your work! We have been privileged over the years to have people from all walks of life believe in us, as people and as musicians. Joining Dream Team is a dream come true! Like them we believe that dreams are achieved with a good team behind. We are excited to be part of this well-oiled machine; their work and success speak for them. We believe it will be a successful partnership and a beginning to a new era for MuzArt. ((((((DREAMTEAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!)))))))!” expresses MuzArt.
Breakups are the worst. Whether you choose to break up with someone, or someone chooses to break up with you - it’s devastating. This week we look into the science behind break ups, and put newly single participants through a program to help them feel better about themselves and their love life.

Jesus said, “If you abide in Me, you will bear much fruit.” One translation says, “If you will depend on Me.” The word “depend” indicates continual action. You don’t depend once and then you’re done. It’s not, “Oh, I went to church on Sunday. I spent a couple hours. I did my duty.” No, if you’re going to depend on God, then all through the day your attitude should be, “God, I need You. God, help me to understand this subject in school. God, help me to raise these children.” That’s what it means to depend on God. The more you depend on God, the better things will work out. You will bear much fruit.
We can take the opposite of what Jesus said. If we don’t depend on Him, we’re not going to bear much fruit. We’re not going to be as productive as we could have been. Today, choose to abide in Him. Find strength in Him and let Him empower you for everything you face in this life.
