Nkosinathi Floyd Thya (31) is an events planner from Tsakane, he started planning events in the year 2010 after him and his friends realised that they share the love for music and arts craft. They decided to partner up and start the adventure of events planning. They hosted different events with different concepts and when they saw that they were getting positive feedback, they then started hosting events with live performances of different music genres accommodating everyone. Nkosinathi has worked with a lot of different artists like Bhongo riot, Molly, Mjay Jakkalaz, King Vurrai and Empress Devine just to name a few. The events were hosted at a place called Dijong7 in Ndabezitha but unfortunately, they had to stop after the place burnt down. Nkosinathi took a break from events planning and put his focus on a new business that he had started and also on a freelancing job that he had.
The events planner (Nkosinathi) relocated to the Northern Cape for three years and when he came back, people that used to attend his events would plead others suggested to him that he should go back on doing events and he reluctantly agreed. One of his best events was back in June 2010, the first ever event that he hosted and had up to 25% people from all over the Gauteng Province even outside attending.
He says that he has plenty of massive concepts for 2019, “2019 is going to be as nice as my name Nathi9ce, people must expect good vibes only” He also mentioned that they are working more on creating a platform for artists to showcase their craft since Tsakane does not have an art facility. His future plans include being a well-known event organiser and to put Tsakane and the brand 1550 on the Map when it comes to the illest art events. “If you have passion and love for event planning then there is nothing that can stop you, it is tough, but it is nice at the end” he advices anyone that wants to go into event planning.
