The end of suffering

For decades and even centuries, I think the humxn race has been able to at least agree on one thing and that is, that something somewhere went terribly wrong and that that something needs fixing. Despite this, poverty, racism, rape, murder and everything else that is wrong with the world has only gotten worse. We…

Sha! Sha! Shackles…

This is my belief: as much as 1994 saw the political freedom of South Africa, majority of the black race is yet to taste true freedom. I’m talking about freedom from mental slavery, the root of the problem. It has been said that if you tie up an animal long enough, it will struggle to…

I kissed a girl and I liked it

It’s no secret that society dictates how most the world views or sees things and kissing a girl is one of these things society is highly opinionated about. In one society group it’s bold and in another it’s wrong, others even go as far as banishing anyone who shares a kiss with the same sex….

Girl, why you so shady DOU??

I must admit some people are double gifted when it comes to (in the words of Nicki Minaj) throwing shade like it’s sunnnnnny 🌞… Life has taught me on thing, very well, and that is: “Not everyone will love you.” No matter how hard you try, some people you will just never please. NEVER. I…

Service Review

I was given a pretty odd topic to write about this time around and I’m gonna be honest-its not really my forte’. I guess its due to the fact that service is something that some of us don’t have the time to entertain, well atleast let me speak for myself and its not because I…

Hair diaries

When you have ‘Natural Hair’ what does it mean? For the longest times I was under the impression that having ‘Natural Hair’ meant not applying any relaxer or any texture-adjusting chemicals to my hair. Well I have done some growing up and let’s say I no longer think that way… I started applying relaxer to…

Stir fry surprise.

It’s hard I tell you; being a dedicated lover of food and a vegetarian from a small town all at the same time. Finding decent places that serve decent vegetarian meals proves to be mission impossible most of the time. My heart never gets used to the disappointment. I don’t even bother with most fast…

Generational Struggles

I have never been very interested in politics. However, the recent events in SA’s history have made it absolutely unavoidable even for the most ignorant to ponder about the path our country is on. SA has seen a lot of strife. And each generation has had its own distinct mark on that struggle. First it…

Valuing My Vagina

“I am a virgin…” I don’t know if I should give you a few seconds to let that sink in because it’s what I’ve had to do most times after revealing that. I don’t know why but for some reason that really shocks people, it’s always either a shock to them or a complete joke….

Cyber(celebrity) Bullying the new trend?

I’m quite bothered by the recent social media trends lately. It seems as though people have accepted cyber bulling as a normal and cool thing to do especially if it’s a celebrity. Or maybe I’m just taking it way too seriously but either way is this the new trend for us now? A few weeks…

eKapa Lodumo (the Famous Cape)

EKapa Lodumo – firstly I have always loved that name for Cape Town (CT), which, in translation, means the Famous Cape. Yes, the mother city 🙌🏾 My CT visit was three days and two nights, and that much time was not enough to do all that CAN be done in the city – yet don’t…

Our Special Day(s)

I remember our pastor warning us as we sat in pre-marital counselling saying “whatever you do, make sure this process brings you together – because it has torn couples apart”. At the time I really didn’t pay much attention to it. We are planning a wedding (weddings if you’re black) – joining two families and…
