CHICKA BOOM!

It’s been YEEEARS since I last listened to this incredible Swedish artist’s piercingly gorgeous music, and yet this heck of a jam, Love Is Free, has made me feel the same sense of connectedness to a very raw and – errr, FREE – dimension of my soul as Call Your Girlfriend did. *Insert dancing-in-my-sweatpans-with-rouged-lips-and-whipping-my-twists-to-and-fro GIF here already* What….

Overwhelming Mercy

The LORD has been so wonderful; so precious about my life. (edit: 30 Oct. 2016 – I just did a double take of the ‘about’ in the above statement, trying to make sense of it following the heavy cloud of doubt that made me question its grammatical accuracy. Oh-my-hat! So GOD is precious about my…

Black Coffee – Your Eyes ft. Shekhinah

By far one of the greatest Producers/DJs this generation has been blessed to witness, Black Coffee’s new cut with the brilliant songstress, Shekhinah, is definitely a top favourite currently. Since we’re talking Black Coffee, I think this is a great space to release into the Universe my dreams of working with him in the future –…

The Hair & Now

You can say it – very cheesy post title. I know, but I swear it’s full of meaning. I currently have the unfortunate reality of devilishly thirsty roots, and a scalp that is begging for me to stage an effective intervention. Before I get into it, check out this beautifully produced Youtube tutorial that breaks…

MBONGO ZAKA

Definitely no ballerina flows here, this is one of those jams that I’m liking quite a lot. Directed by Kyle Lewis (Arcade Content) and shot by gifted AFDA alumni, Zenn van Zyl , the music video is delicious visually speaking, and the lyrics quite catchy. I know this will probably sound absurd of me because the 4:00” mark is…

Moitheri

We’re moving higher. I refer to all the brown-skinned women who call this soulful continent, Africa, home. It makes the blood rise up my cheeks – so joyfully that I couldn’t at all be concerned about how I structure this post. How do I say it all without saying too much? Here’s how:       Just…

Pearls of Wisdom

Dear Reader, I’ve been back in Durban for just shy of two weeks now, and – if I’m really honest with myself – am beginning to feel quite low and unmotivated as I am currently without work… and even that’s a euphemistic way of putting it. Here goes: I am currently unemployed (I am doing…

SMARTENING UP – ONLY BECAUSE NOTHING ELSE MAKES SENSE.

So, it’s now the 15th July 2016. A Friday afternoon in Durban. The title of this post, ‘Smartening Up’ has been something I’ve been thinking about quite a lot – what with being 25 and all. This is the year that I’ve earmarked as the bridge leading to me finally ACTIONING the various projects and…

The 36th Law

It’s 19h46 and I am gradually settling into my element. At what is currently my office desk at the studio is where the Potential of the dreams of my heart (however clogged up) dances – shyly – for me. I recently turned 25 (EXACTLY a month to the day), and feel quite nervous about it all….
