Such a despicable nightmare invaded my slumber a few days ago, that it shook me to the core. I called my mother to tell her that I loved her, because the end is near.

The Hague found wanting

ent show 13 marchAny person with even one artistic bone in their body will tell you how hard they have to work to ensure that their work does not become monotonous. It is a constant struggle, not only with oneself, but also with the other artists in the same line of work. One’s work should not reflect complacency nor should it look as though it has been plagiarised.

The ranting of a fashion nut: Mid-life crisis

There is nothing that screams “mid-life crisis” like a man over 40 years with a wallet chain and earring in one ear. Sports cars and girlfriends young enough to be their granddaughters are too cliché for Namibian men when they are going through their mid-life crises.

Surviving the shame

Hazy memories of taking shots and giving a stranger a lap dance are what usually cross your mind before you open your eyes after a night of heavy partying.

Embracing the human form

ent juli 06 marchIt should come as no surprise that people have issues such as body dysmorphia because body shaming has become a norm in our society. Be it online, at schools, in the home or at work, or just for fun or malicious intent, people take jabs at each other’s body types on a daily basis.

Ndilimani farming music

It’s scarcely 10 a.m. on a typical Monday morning and the sun is already blistering hot. Sitting in the back seat, the car’s aircon and tinted windows give the illusion of a cloudy day outside.

I love men who are not afraid to stand out of the crowd through their fashion choices. Over the years, I have come to realise that an outfit is only as good looking as the confidence levels of the wearer.
