“We choose to hold it here because it is a convenient place that is familiar to everyone in Zandspruit,” said Golden Drifters Football Academy director and president, Proud Shoko, who also lends his hand at helping out with events for the youth in Zandspruit. Every year, the day gives local talent the opportunity to put themselves out there and make themselves known to the people of Zandspruit.

“It gives us a platform to showcase our talents, and to show the people of Zandspruit that there really are special talents brewing here,” said the founder of Honeydew HipHop, Ishmael Masuku.
