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.

Theo Abrahams, a seemingly Average Joe but with a lethal set of skills, goes on the run when he's accused of a crime he doesn't even remember committing.
The ensuing chaos leads him down the rabbit hole of a conspiracy at the highest levels of government.


Suffering from severe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and unable to return to work, ex-fireman Theo Abrahams (Jarrid Geduld) turns to alcohol and becomes increasingly frustrated and volatile.

Theo’s world is rocked when his journalist wife Angela (Nicole Fortuin) is murdered – and he is the prime suspect. He soon finds himself on the run from the police for a murder he is positive he didn’t commit. But was he framed? Or did one of his violent nightmares cause him to do something he didn’t mean to do?

Lauryn is a woman for whom nothing is permanent – not jobs, relationships or even living arrangement. Not only must she confront the choices she’s made, she also needs to contend with her changing body.
Ridley Scott's thrilling Sci-Fi Action Series Raised by Wolves which is palming in rave reviews and accolades is the biggest international television series ever filmed in Cape Town and Season 2 currently on Showmax now also stars Cape Town born and raised Hollywood actress Kim Engelbrecht.

Ridley Scott is by no stretch of the imagination one of the biggest Sci-Fi Action film and television directors ever with Alien & Blade Runner just two of his many memorable films.
Season 1 of Raised by Wolves was already a runaway success and the addition of Kim Engelbrech who needs no introduction to South African film and television audiences will definitely add to its popularity.

For anyone finishing high school, attending their Matric Ball aka Senior Prom is a highlight that caps a 13 year long school career from Grade R to Grade 12 and almost every school learner looks forward to that day.

A Cape Flats teen from Valhalla Park who attended Elsies River High School had other plans.

Jade le Roux gave up the Glits & Glamour of attending her Matric Ball and instead served 150 needy people with a meal and threw a party to honour her local community hero Charlene Petersen.

Finally, as lockdown levels have been eased, the Virtual World of The Uncle Cal Xperience Meets Reality as Uncle Cal hosts a long-awaited Live Outside Broadcast at the Oude Molen Eco Village in Pinelands on 4 Dec from 2pm to 10pm. As is the custom with most Uncle Cal events, those attending will once again be part of something special to enhance the lives of the less fortunate.

Through Uncle Cal’s partnership with Band Aid SA, attendees will through a Toy Drive tied to this event be helping to bring some much needed Festive Season Joy to the many underprivileged children directly served by NGO’s and Community Organisations that Uncle Cal &Band Aid SA are working with.

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.

Mind you… We haven’t in recent years seen Jitsvinger wearing any snazzy sneakers or fancy dress shoes…
Daai bra dra mos net Graasies eksé.

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.
