Brandon Benjamin originally from Steenberg / Retreat near Muizenberg in the Cape Peninsula recently became the 52nd South African Men's Surfing Champion when he won the title at Buffalo City.
On Sunday 27 August 2017 the 22-year-old became the first person of colour to win the national surf title, but with hardly any media coverage and sponsorship to cover his costs, it's an uphill battle for the new champion to fulfill his dream of competing on the professional circuit.
With unbridled irreverence, Shana tackles the issues many of us on the Cape Flats and indeed in Coloured areas across the country almost constantly face albeit to varying degrees.
She spares no holy cows, pulls no punches and it's a casse of either you get it, or you don't.
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…
When we said in 2016 that Music Exchange is The Definitive Conference on Our Entertainment Economy, we were not exaggerating. Last year #MEX16 was phenomenal and now #MEX17 promises to up their game to new levels.
On 23 August 2017 the Kullid Foundation has addressed an open letter to the Government of The Republic of South Africa regarding the way the Grace Mugabe assault on Gabriella Engels is being handled ...or rather about the fact that it is Not being handled.
The letter below is published as received.

When 3 Tons of Fun was formed 10 years ago, they truly broke the stereotype that only slender women can be sexy and they affirmed that fuller-bodied females can also successfully grace stages as artists and consistently remain popular with audiences. Their success calls for a big celebration and they are doing it in style on 9 September 2017.
This is a slightly edited version of the dedication and eulogy I read at my wife's funeral on 12 August 2017. My late wife, Renee Ash, was a critically important person in the development of the website www.bruinou.com as well as the struggle to bring the TV show "Colour TV" to your screens in 2012. I'd just like to acknowledge her, tell our story and let everybody know a bit about what we went through in our lives while building this website and lobbying the SABC for media for Coloured South Africans.
"Shoprite prides itself over its so-called respect for women, with its annual award, yet Shoprite shows the greatest disdain for women."

Their alleged crime: Keeping the tips that grateful customers have given them.
Make no mistake. This is Huge! ...but Kim Engelbrecht is not simply a "flash-in-the-pan" actress who just happened to get lucky.
Kim has come a long way having spent more than two decades building a solid career in the entertainment industry.

Wayde van Niekerk cruised to victory in his first serious 400m race in Lausanne on Thursday night as he grabbed his second world lead.
The Olympic champion even slowed before crossing the line‚ but he still stopped the clock on 43.62sec‚ a record for this Diamond League meet and a time faster than any active athlete in the world.
Only four other men in history have been quicker‚ including American Michael Johnson‚ who had held t previous 43.66 meet record.
Acting Western Cape High Court Judge Leslie Weinkove who in February showed that he clearly has no clue or simply chooses to ignore the impact which Systemic & Structural Racism has on the majority of South Africa's population, especially the very poor who are being displaced in the case he was presiding over, has stepped down from presiding over the Bromwell Street Residents vs The City of Cape Town case.
