Blackmotion’s New Spiiders Showcased at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week

Oprah Winfrey once said, “Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness.”  These words resonate the determination and ambition of Kagiso Moima Wa Masimini, owner of South African based rental company Blackmotion. Kagiso dreams big, is courageous and is driven by an inner strength and belief to offer his clients with professional service at all times. He strives to up his game and invests in equipment, the latest being 12 Robe Spiiders.

The Spiiders were used at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week by David Tlale, one of South Africa’s top internationally recognised designers, and was held at Mercedes Benz Bedfordview in Johannesburg.  David Tlale, interestingly enough, is also known locally as the King of Fashion despite his humble beginnings growing up in Vosloorus, a township south of Boksburg in Johannesburg. “We lit the fashion ramp with the Spiiders,” said Kagiso. “In terms of coverage, they were used as white light…we had to go 8000K (which we got) in regards to the colour temperature. They worked really, really well and David Tlale was impressed not only with the brightness but also the quality of light that came out of the LED.”

At Zithabiseni The Return Festival, held at the start of September in Mpumulanga, the Spiiders were again set to work, this time on a 12 x 8m stage built by MJ Event Gear. “I would have loved more Spiiders,” smiles Kagiso, “But to be honest, 12 was more than adequate and were used for eye candy and as a wash.” Following a two-year break from hosting any public entertainment events, Zithabiseni Resort was thrilled with their festival which included a blend of kwaito, afro-pop, hip-hop and house, amongst other genres.
