This is the first of a two-part blog post titled Black on Both Sides. I’m sure the Hip-Hop aficionados remember and probably still play Black on Both Sides, Mos Def’s classic break out album, right? Mos Def or should I say Yasiin Bey now, as he changed his name recently hasn’t been bringing the classics lately but his shit was hot fire when [...]

There are a couple of actors that I do not particularly care for, and Hugh Grant is one of them. Nothing against him as a person I should add - after all, I don’t know the man individually as I have never met him. The only bit of semi personal knowledge I have is that [...]
This story does my heart good. As a proud Nigerian-American hearing news about the homeland that doesn’t involve a Nigerian prince asking for money via email, makes me a little giddy. A few years ago, Nigeria launched 2 satellites in to space. According to the BBC these satellites are now being used to keep tabs on [...]
This is the first blog post in a Blog Series called Mafuta Vibes. Are You Allowed To Be Fat? So I don’t blog much, so this is my first blog. I do write lots about me and life in my diary, like most young girls do. But today I am branching out and trying this whole blogging [...]
This is Part 1 of a two-part blog on “Hood” Movies in South Africa. Right now I am hungry for a brothers in-the-hood movie, completely gangster. With Impala 64’s and slow moving drive-by assassinations, “chicken-head” women chattering all over the place and smack talking. Scenarios where the kid on a BMX is selling crack, under-aged [...]
At some point in your life you have heard the names One Piece, Naruto, or Bleach if not then definitely these Digimon, Pokemon and Dragon Ball Z. Growing up some of us didn’t know these cartoons were a subculture of Anime. I’ll approach this post on the chances that the majority of our community are [...]
The 90′s were famous for their many comedies whether black, white or homegrown. When I think of the comedies that I enjoyed as a young girl my mind goes to Friends, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and Martin I loved those comedies. They just used to make laugh so much. I love the lightness and sometimes [...]
Since we had such amazing feedback on our soap opera post, I thought it would be good to speak about Generations new villainess or b*tch. Her name is Noluntu Mamela, played so well by rising star Zenande Mfenyana and she is ruthless, cold, charming and scary.
As a young girl, I was a big soapie lover. I loved all the soap operas from Days of Our Lives to Backstage. I must admit that in the 1990′s and early 2000′s my favourite soap operas were the South African ones. I just could not miss an episode of Generations and Isidingo. The backstabbing [...]
