Ballade vir Madiba ... Gavin van den Berg, Shareen Swart, Kaz McFadden

Vreemde nag.
Skarlaken nag.
Koerantpapiere, baksteenmure, Neon nag.
Sirenes onder 'n donker maan.

Nag na nag.
Mens na mens.
Donker nagte, onverwagte.
En elkeen is uiteindelik.

Enkeling, vreemdeling, verstoteling rug gedraai op die ligtekring.
Agterstevoor, onderstebo.
Vreemdeling, enkeling alleen.
Agterstevoor, onderstebo.
Vreemdeling, enkeling alleen.
- Richard van der Westhuizen

  Old ballads never die! Our hero Nelson Mandela will never die ...he will live on in our hearts ... he will always live on through all South Africans embracing the values he immersed into our beautiful country.

This week on the iStart2 Show we asked two actors, Gavin van den Berg & Shareen Swart, from one of the most popular Afrikaans television series, Ballade vir n Enkeling, screened back in the Apartheid years (1987) to reflect on the past and to focus on the challenges facing actors today. Kaz McFadden, a young actor known for roles in 7de Laan, Egoli and Villa Rosa, joined us to reflect on sustainability in the arts industry. 

Jacques Rynhardt & Meisie Moolman. Remember?

Messages to President Nelson Mandela:

Gavin van den Berg: "You will be with me in spirit forever"
Shareen Swart: "I thank you for giving us a legacy of reconcilliation"
Kaz McFadden: " I hope there are many more like you Mr Mandela"
