Getting old is uncontrollable and it seems, so are the signs that accompany it. Ageing is a good excuse if your skin begins to sag or if your wrinkles increase in number. We shall have to delve even much more deeper into the history and evolution of African Music in Mzantsi. Our problem nowadays is that we know nothing about ourselves. We have no stories from which we can begin to think and build ourselves. We depend on stories and histories of out music and other people. But when it comes to our own, we know nothing, and are not even aware there so much that concerns such fields as the history of African music in South Africa, and its evolution, thereof. It is probably significant in this regard that, uncommonly for prominent black artists of the time, Feni, though he often used the facilities provided by these, never really took instruction at the white run art institutions. Instead his first, and probably crucial, training was as part of an informal group around the artist Ephraim Ngatane, later honed during a period in a sanatorium where he was suffering from tuberculosis. Our educational system is in chaos and bankrupt. It does not serve our interests and our people. Our children are lost like the times when we were colonized and missionary schools took over our children, brainwashed them, and made them reject their cultures, disrespect their elders and reject their customs, histories and traditions. The same is true now during the rule of our own and supposedly democratically elected ANC government. Many White South Africans are working assiduously hard to colonize information about Africans and their own history and information. Well, now is the time we take over, not colonize, our information and we fashion it to our needs as we see our education will be relegated to the Web’s viral stream, so be it. Brazilians are also passionate about soccer and are rated among the best players of the sport in the world. Every four years when the world’s best teams vie for the World Cup championship, Brazil virtually shuts down as the nation’s collective attention turns to the action on the playing field. And when Brazil wins the World Cupâ€”as it has on more occasions than any other countryâ€”the delirium of the populace is palpable. Brazilian flags are hoisted aloft, everyone wears green and yellow (the national colors), and thousands of Brazilians, seemingly intoxicated with pride, take to the streets in revelry. the scholarly work devoted to African literature(s) in the African languages in South Africa: from Daniel Kunene’s Heroic poetry of the Basotho (1971) to Jeff Opland’s Xhosa Poets and Poetry (1998). In between these two publications, there has been the three remarkable essays on the three major streams of this literature by Harold Scheub that appeared in Literatures in African Languages: Theoretical Issues and Sample Surveys (1985).
It is through knowing, understanding, respecting and working around the clock with our cultural reality that we will be able to reorientate our people and shift the oppressive paradigm and dysfunctional zeitgeist that we see now amongst our midst as an African people For us to have a fully fledged and autonomous nation, we shall have to upgrade our cultural sensitivity and know-howâ€¦ Until we do, the situation will deteriorate even much more faster, and we face being ‘disappeared” and being genocidally wiped off the face of the earth. African Culture, Traditions, Customs, Traditional sacred Rites and Practices, Traditional music and Dance, Languages and so forth, those are for us the only way to a free, independent and autonomous nation. “While I am addressing a general audience, it is my highest hope that serious researchers will make a careful review of the references and selected bibliography. Special attention should be paid to those that point to documentation and descriptions informing us about our traditions. I am hopeful that these references will tease, enlighten, and heighten the interest of researchers so that they may be motivated to do the hard work of digging up greater details to illuminate traditional African aims, methods, contents, and outcomes. On the initiative of several members of the African National Congress, especially Dumile’s friend Isaac Witkin and the conservator and bronze-caster John Phillips, funds were set up with which to bring Dumile’s works back from the USA to South Africa, to be shown in the National Gallery in Cape Town.

Many women look for these details in a man, on the grounds that many women want a man to look after then, knowing that they are safe.

MW: Yes I think so, but in a different, lighter, more natural way. We want to look good but we don’t want to be disfigured and look like everyone else. The last time I went for a facial I was saying to myself, “I’m starting to get a few lines on my forehead, and I’ve got a laughter line here, maybe I should get some hyaluronic acid or something.” But my dermatologist wouldn’t do anything on my skinâ€”she said not yet.

The missionary turned academic C. M. Doke proposed to the conference participants the establishing of An Academy of African Arts; a proposal that was to be re-discovered anew in the 1940s by Jordan Ngubane and Anton Lembede (1914-1947) in Inkundla ya Bantu (Bantu Forum) newspaper, the intellectual forum of the African nationalism of the ANC Youth League. This innovative idea of the Academy was in all probability related to the extraordinary linguistic work Clement Martyn Doke had undertaken in the study of African languages in Southern Africa which he anticipated could inspire African literature(s) in the African languages into creating a renaissance or renascences. Even so, in the midst of multicultural reading it can be a difficult task to find those universal characteristics for some readers. This is a major problem for multiculturalism. Sometimes differing cultures express the same universal concept but in irreconcilable forms. Furthermore, some readers have a difficult time putting aside everyday assumptions and breaking away from their familiar acceptance of the world (Buckingham et al., 2011). Thus, multicultural literature, which exclusively, yet not implicitly highlights differences between cultures, must instigate further misunderstandings. What else could possibly result from exclusively focusing on the differences between cultures other than building more barriers and separations? If readers cannot find the common connections in multicultural literature, then the sources of commonality or universality must be lost. This leads to stereotypes, otherness, and labels.

We cannot hope and wish that we should be accepted by our enemies as just human beings without our identity of being African always the first thing the enemy sees.

A lot of manufacturers are also reproducing the vintage vest designs, focusing on designs and materials from the early 1800’s up to the 1970’s. Classic vest designs are the inspiration for many of the modern ones, and the old styles still look great, a timeless article of clothing for sure. “Mass media send messages to us and about us that are beyond our control. Schools have nothing to engage our students in African Cultural Traditions or in support of African Communities. Our Communities rarely acknowledges our Traditions and they fail to create adequate structures to guarantee “Intergenerational Cultural Transmission”. We are culturally lazy and our ancestors are not pleased. History will not be kind to this of us who forget. Shame, disintegration and dependency on others, or worse, will be the outcome.
