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.

Die storie van Boesman Myt is veel meer algemeen as wat mense besef en hoewel 'n mens later agterkom dat haar storie hom eintlik net so oor die twee dekades terug afspeel, hoor ons nog steeds so nou en dan 'n fluisterstorie of ons sien en lees flinkweg 'n klein koerantberiggie oor 'n soortgelyke geval hier op die Kaapsevlaktes.
Denver Lopez vertel die verhaal van een vrou maar Boesman Myt verteenwoordig ook 'n groot getal voorheen-landelike vrouens wie se stories almal as persoonlike geheimpies gedra word sonder om te kla. Baie van hulle het dalk nie onder dieselfde omstandighede in die Kaap beland nie en dalk moes hulle nie alles van dieselfde gruwele verduur nie maar dat hulle met alle soorte beloftes Kaap toe gebring is en dat hulle onmenslike werksomstandighede moes verduur is wat Boesman Myt hulle storie en ja, ook ons almal se storie maak.
How negative are you about your own people?
Do you always readily find faults with everything associated with Kullidness, yet still you're never able to provide solutions to all those faults you so readily identify and point to?

Seeing the two of them around Cape Town sporting their curly natural hair definitely just proves that what we at Bruinou.com have for a while now been referring to as the #Bossiekop #Kroesade or in other words, a Natural Hair Crusade, is not just a simple fashion fad but for those who embrace it, it has become a lifestyle choice.
