The Devil Made Do It - Dookoom Owns Afro-Punk & Horrorcore
In a world and particularly a country like SA, which has an unnatural and bizarre fixation with mediocrity, to be unique, true to one's self and to the game - DOOKOOM is the absolute antithesis of this sad state of affairs. Isaac Mutant stays true to what is indeed a unique aural feel and texture which is almost unbearably tactile - but in a beautifully delicious way of course.

It's Been a While - Claire Phillips Returns to The Stage featuring Jitsvinger
It’s Been A While, an intimate, semi-acoustic, stripped down collection of sensual songs, as they were originally composed, sees Claire Phillips return to the stage challenging herself to recollect moments of creativity when it was just herself and her guitar, sitting in a room, or under a tree at music school, writing songs that would eventually make their way onto stages and into people’s hearts.

Che-V says Blow My Horn while She Blows Our Minds
To say that Che-V has star quality would be somewhat of an understatement.
Sometimes we come across an artist who has been making bold moves on the entertainement scene for some time, and we ask ourselves how could we have missed this for so long and more importantly, why is the mainstream still sleeping on this artist?
When Kay-Lee Williams of Vision Music Records introduced us to Che-V and her music, we at Bruinou.com were blown away.
Father - The 2012 Zane Meas Movie is Still Very Much Relevant Today
A seasoned actor, an author, a motivational speaker, and he is the founder and CEO of the Fatherhood Foundation, Zane Meas is said to have sold his car in order to self-fund the production of his film 'Father'.
The film officially premiered in 2013 but has been screened by the Fatherhood Foundation at various venues since 2012, yet many people still are not aware of the film’s existence.
In celebration of Father’s Day 2016, bruinou.com is highlighting this film which still needs to be seen by so many all over the country in order for it to make its intended meaningful impact on our South African society.
Mr Table Tennis Film Explores a Generational Legacy in Sport
Mr Table Tennis is the inter-generational story of Pedro and Cody Meyer. Their story of big dreams unfolds against an ambiguous socio-economic climate. South Africa supposedly offers the world to its Born Frees, but these opportunities also seem to grow ever further beyond reach.
Bruinou.com spoke to Tina-Louise about her film opening at the Encounters South African Film Festival on Sunday 5 June 2016.
There’s no such thing as a coloured identity
Those who consider themselves “coloured” have obviously not yet been liberated from the apartheid yoke, writes Lionel Adendorf.
The whole point of Bruinou.com's existence is not to be the entity arguing what people who are classified or self-identify as Coloured should or should not be called, but to be a platform where these identity issues can be discussed, so please don't shoot the messenger.
Cape Town - There has never been a race called “coloured”. There is no coloured culture, no coloured traditions and no coloured customs. And therefore, no coloured people.
These are the hard truths those who consider themselves “coloured” need to accept.
Don’t be Fooled by My Complexion
Don’t be fooled by my complexion, as a mixed-race individual I’m proud of my Black side, and no, I’m not wearing an ANC scarf hoping for a tender as I write this – it’s because by me knowing that side of myself I know there are certain values that are sacrosanct, I respect that, but I do not fight against my independent-mindedness - I know that adults must be given some leeway but ultimately they too need to earn respect.
Why Wayde's Gold is a Win for Coloured Identity
The term “Coloured” began trending on Twitter after Wayde van Niekerk won Olympic gold and set a new world record, and that’s okay, says Carla Bernardo.
Many of the issues she explores in this article are in fact what Bruinou.com is all about.
Why Wayde's Gold is a Win for Coloured Identity
by Carla Bernado - IOL
Cape Town - So, while the rest of the world began celebrating Wayde Van Niekerk as an incredible athlete who - at the tender age of 24 - smashed a 17-year-old record, somewhere along the line, we South Africans began debating about who, as a race group, gets ownership of Team SA’s only gold medalist in Rio.
The term “coloured” began trending on Monday morning and my immediate reaction was: “But why? Let this boy bask in his well-deserved glory, at least for a day.”
But almost as soon as I thought that, I realised what Wayde’s win could do for the coloured narrative in South Africa.
Now see, I have recently started proudly identifying myself as coloured.
Let Us Live - Three generations of women; one shared narrative.
When given an open brief on a video work for “Women’s Day” my self-awareness went into overdrive like, there are so many issues pertaining to existing in this palatable yet fetishised, light-skinned body that I could speak on. I could turn the camera on myself, put together some beautiful montage of me flicking my natural hair in slow-motion, talking about being an empowered, strong woman for all those little brown girls out there to look up to, an older, South African version of Amandla Stenberg…
