Ons is wel 'n bietjie laat met ons gelukwense, maar ons is geweldig trots op Jacques du Toit wie onlangs gekies is as voorsitter van die Virtuele Instituut vir Afrikaans (VivA) se direksie. Ons hier by Bruinou.com waardeer ons lang verbintenis met Jacques du Toit opreg. Die pad wat ons die laaste vyf jaar saamstap wentel rondom 'n verskeidenheid van velde en dissiplines wat strek van die uitvoerende en visuele kunste, tot by film, linguistiek en die letterkunde.

Band Aid for Ameen, The Rappin Donkey

It is seldom that an entertainer, over a span of decades, continues to capture the imaginations of not only audiences but also that of other entertainers in a diverse variety of fields and still somehow continues to remain relevant while always evolving.

 

Not only was and is the originator of the Bruin Man Funk continually evolving but by all accounts Ameen Levy still manages to stick to his core identity as an artist, an entertainer and more importantly, as a person.

 

Sadly Ameen Levy and his family were struck by the devastating tragedy of losing their home in a fire on 22 September 2021. To help them through this difficult period, and help get the Ameen Levy Foundation back up and running, Band Aid along with Uncle Cal and P-Fore Online are hosting a benefit event for the entertainer who has not only worked with, influenced and paved the way for so many of his contemporaries and those young artists who he has given a platform to, but who has also given joy to audiences and fans all over the country.

The Graasies single and its recently released music video pay homage to the highly popular South African Grasshopper shoes that are worn across all generations and genders.

It's officially the start of our festive holiday season and there will naturally be an influx of visitors to our beautiful city - visitors from other provinces in our country, as well as ones from beyond our borders. Of course we want everyone to feel welcome.
I have decided to provide some help to you, our dear visitors from all over, as you move around our city, attempting to understand the unique language which is spoken in our neck of the woods, as well as for when you try to get to grips with some of our cultural nuances.

Well... I can't remember how many times over the past few months I've told people "No, Nommer 37 is not your 'run-of-the-mill' Cape Flats gangster movie".
To be honest... Until now that was based on the information I have been given by people involved in different aspects of the production of the movie, but now I have actually seen the entire film.
After attending the official South African premiere on Monday 21 May I can with one hundred percent certainty say...
Nommer 37 is die nomme vannie flêt... It gannie oo’ nommeskap en gêngsterism soes ôs it kennie...

Metrorail Diaries - In a Pinch

The taxi is an old Toyota Hiace. The seats pinch and sting your butt.
When brakes are applied, it shakes like a junkie in need of a fix.
Alles vibrate… My tanne klap effentjies tien mekaa… My oë traan…  Ek’s wakker nou…
