• Amidst recent social upheaval, internet shutdown and government crackdown we tried to find an answer to the question whether Zimbabwe’s current woes are the product of former president Robert Mugabe’s ghost still lingering in the battered country. For this we delved into the country’s recent history ending up interviewing the leader of the Tajamuka social justice movement, Mr. Promise Mkwananzi. Take your time for this lengthy read and very insightful interview we had with Mr. Mkwananzi.

  • Thoughts on Winnie Mandela by Suthukazi Arosi Through the window we all looked and have decided without knowing the exact truth. 

  • Hugh Masekela who passed on Jan 23, 2018 is an integral part of South African modern history, being part of the resistance against 'apartheid' oppression, the social issues he addressed in his music, as well as being a larger-than-life figure. 'Stimela' is the track that Hugh Masekela will probably be best remembered for as it encompasses all of his work both lyrically and musically. Such is the significance of 'Stimela' as it addresses the theme of hope against a backdrop of social injustice, central to South African modern history, a history still marked by decades of 'apartheid'.

  • “Naked” features 10 brand new tracks recorded over a period of twelve years, 2 remixes and 3 interludes. The interludes introduce the listener to some of the traditional and tribal sounds of South Africa. Each with a specific purpose and theme.
