“I was so impressed by the #QuarantineOnlineParty kanti the DJs and their friends were all touching the same equipment and grooving in one house.
“Like that’s literally still a party… among people who are the highest risk of spreading it. I.e people who’ve been traveling all over the country and world recently,” said Sho Madjozi.
Shimza responded to Sho Madjozi by saying that her concerns are understood and that they will do better on the next one.
“Hey sis, your concerns r understood. We had >40 people in the venue, most being people who were working on the stream making sure that it worked well. Equipment was sanitized, we as djs+ crew kept sanitizing, some wore masks, we tried to avoid contact..we’ll do better on the next,” responded Shimza.
Sho Madjozi said that the idea was dope and that the missing ingredient was social distancing.
“Well done on the idea (it was dope!) and that there were measures taken. The missing ingredient was social distancing. It’s extremely important especially for people in our industry because we travel a lot. Glad that you are open to improve. That’s how we will win this thing,” said Sho Madjozi.
Sho wrote another post explaining what Social distancing means:
1. Staying 2 meters away from each other where possible.
2. Not going to restaurants bars and parties.
3. Not greeting with handshakes, hugs or kisses. It sucks but it’s our best chance of fighting.
“Let’s encourage social distancing as much as we can to fight against this virus! ✊🏾 Next Party Loading,” said Shimza on Monday.
Shimza QuarantinOnlineParty was streamed by more than 200 000 people that enjoyed music from the likes of Black Motion, DJ Zinhle, Maphorisa, and Kabza de Small to name a few.
