The Commonwealth Games is an international, multi-sport event involving athletes from the Commonwealth of Nations. The event takes place every four years and is recognised as the third largest multi-sport event in the world,
after the Olympic Games and the Asian Games.
Ekhaya Village has become synonymous with the Olympic team it has become a tradition when major sporting events take place outside the country’s borders, apart from being a homely environment for fans, provides foreign visitors with a taste of what South African culture and hospitality is all
about. Traditional South African food is served, a wide spectrum of music and services are made available to both residents of the republic and society at large. South Africans travelling to support the Olympic team in Scotland will have a place they can call “home”.

I feel nervous, blessed and extremely excited about taking my music to new audiences and while sharing the stage with some of South Africa’s greatest…. It’s true when they say hard work pays off..” Says Naima.
