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 … Read the rest

This week is a huge week in the fashion calendar. Such a design is impossible of realization, even though former colonies continue to honor the tongue of the mother country as the prime foreign language in high school curricula.
