Semi-Soet, sweet enough for you?

Following a successful run on the cinema circuit, Platteland is finally out on DVD. Be sure to get your hands on a copy now. It’s available in all good music stores.

If you are looking for something to accompany the roses and chocolates this Valentine’s Day, why not take your beloved to your local cinema to catch the new romantic comedy SEMI-SOET, the first Afrikaans romcom in almost 4 decades. Anel Alexander and Nico Panagio have more fizz than the best champagne.

The year started off with the glittering premiere of Semi-Soet NuMetro Montecasino. The entire cast, together with family and friends, celebrated the film’s imminent release. The black carpet was sizzled with local celebrities and industry players. Thank you to all the sponsors and contributors who made the evening so special. Visit www.semi-soetmovie.co.za for more info on the glitzy evening.

Next month we have exciting news about a new musical we will be releasing later this year, but more about that next time.
