    A Different and Refreshingly Fun Game At Carnival City

    Excitement at Carnival City never seems to stop, with Comedy Sessions, Extravaganzas shows, bright lights and now a new type to fascinating show, or is it a game – call it what you will but Beer Pong is taking a tall to many vising guests, taking place in the Carnival Sports Bar on Fridays between 7pm and 9pm, this is a contests you cannot stomach to loose.

    With locals participation increasing weekly, this is a drinking sport that may be in the Olympics sooner, if Carnival City has its way with the game.

    The game requires R50 entry fee, steady hand, a loud mouth, faulty hearing and a liver of steel. Depending on your luck, you may leave a reigning champion with bragging rights for the night, and R1200 worth of gaming credits richer as prize money.

    The game is played on a Ping-Pong-like table, only slightly smaller, by teams of two. Ten cups, filled to a-third of a cup with beer, are set like bowling pins near the table edges. As you try bounce a Ping-Pong ball into the cups on the side opposite to yours, occasionally opponents jump and yell sounds to intimidate opponents, but if you make it, you get to make them drink the cup. The first team to sink all 10 cups wins. Very Sophisticated, ha!

    To book a turn against your buddies or a worthier opponent, visit the Carnival Sports Bar to register, registration is from 6pm, and the games run until 22h00.

    Soul singer and six-time Grammy nominee Tamia Hill began honing her stellar voice when she was still a child growing-up in Canada.

    Living near the boogie down city of Detroit, the then-budding talent was exposed to that city’s rich musical history through its deep gospel tradition and booming Motown sound.

    “I feel a connection to all types of music,” Tamia says from her home in Florida. “From soul to country to gospel, as long as the song has a good story, I’m hooked.”

    Citing Phyllis Hyman and Chaka Khan as influences, Tamia strives to bring freshness to the soul arena. From her brilliant debut single “You Put a Move on My Heart,” produced by Quincy Jones in 1994, to her more recent song cycle, Tamia possesses both a hypnotic charm and timeless voice.

    In her accomplished career, Tamia has collaborated with a diverse roster of artists including Babyface, Barry White, Missy Elliott, Rodney “Dark Child” Jerkins, Gladys Knight, Eric Benet and Gerald Levert; in 2003, she recorded the #4 Billboard Hot 100 Chart hit ”Into You” with rapper Fabolous.

    With the release of her fifth studio album “Beautiful Surprise”, the singer aurally explores various genres of music, blending her special passion with each style and making them her own. Having recruited two-time Grammy nominated songwriter/producer Claude Kelly (Bruno Mars’ “Grenade” and Kelly Clarkson’s “My Life Would Suck without You”) as her co-executive producer, the two worked hard to create a project that is as diverse as it is soulful. Don’t miss this concert as she will perform hits from all her albums.
