Carol Ofori, television and radio personality

This year, Carol Ofori is celebrating the Easter weekend with those near to her up in Johannesburg. “I am going to be in Johannesburg for Easter this year and we are going to be doing Easter egg hunts and visiting some restaurants in and around the city,” Carol shares. For us, Good Friday and Easter Sunday is church time. We go to church, observe what the meaning of the day is and then all get together and have lunch as a family. I also plan to spend as much time with my sister and her family, as well as my parents, before heading back to Durban towards the end of the long weekend.”

Alex Jay, Jacaranda FM radio personality

In the world of radio, sometimes long weekends also mean additional working hours – and radio legend Alex Jay is going to spend the Easter weekend doing the thing he loves most, connecting with Jacaranda FM listeners on air. “My Easter weekend will see me working and standing in on Breakfast with Martin Bester on Jacaranda FM. This is such a great family time, and I love hanging out with everyone on air, and then heading home to hang out with my family.” Alex adds “That is what this time of year means to me. I will, of course, also be spending quality time with Quincy, my Beagle, and as long as you can keep the Easter eggs away from him, you know it’s going to be a good one.”

Marc Lottering, comedian

For local comedian Marc Lottering, the long weekend will see him perform his critically acclaimed new stand-up show ‘So I Wrote That Musical’ at the Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees in Oudtshoorn. Marc, who is also set to be honoured with the Hall Of Fame award at the Savanna Comics’ Choice Comedy Awards next month, jokes that he will also continue to pray for people who say ‘PIKKEL FISH’ instead of pickled fish.

DJ Sabby, radio personality

For popular radio personality DJ Sabby, Easter is a time of reflection – especially as his son continues to grow. “I still feel like I’m a new dad and with holidays, there’s a sense of excitement in the air about the fact that my child is not going to go to school and I get to spend some more time with him. But, every holiday has a true or real meaning behind it and I think the ethos of that needs to always be honoured.” Sabby explains “Growing up in a Christian home, I think it’s very important that my son understands the meaning behind the Easter holidays. This has become a very exciting moment for me. There’s a moment of learning and a moment of being together as a family. Easter has become a time when we are creating our tradition as a family around this time of year. This time of year is about learning, and realising what it means for us and what it means for society. Happy Easter holidays to you all!”

Kim Jayde, media personality and businesswoman

As Easter approaches, media personality and businesswoman Kim Jayde gears up to celebrate the holiday in the company of her loved ones. Reflecting on the significance of family, Kim emphasises, “The most important thing to me in life is my family. I’ve built my own little family in Joburg, so I plan on having Sunday lunch with my boyfriend and a few friends. That’s what true happiness is – being surrounded by people you love.”
