Makho NdlovuThe African Scene: My Fun & Frustrating Trip To Africa by Makho Ndlovu
Ladies and gentleman, the African Scene on Global Grind is baaaaaaaaaaaaack! For the past few months, I have had a great time penning this column drawing on my personal experiences as an African. I have received a tremendous amount of support and for that I am forever indebted to you all. That being said, there […]The African Scene: Mzansi NYC Meets Dance Ritual (VIDEO)
Last Friday night was one for the history books. On March 15, South Africa’s biggest names in house music descended in New York City for the annual Mzansi NYC meets Dance Ritual. The hours-long party featured F.eU (Fresh & Euphonik), Louie Vega, Anane Vega, Black Coffee and many others. I wanted to share this experience […]The African Scene: Are We Using “Culture” To Hide Behind Outdated Tradition? by Makho Ndlovu
I didn’t see this one coming. Last week, Ms. Peris Pesi Tobiko did the unthinkable. Defying cultural and gender challenges, she became the first Masai woman to be elected MP after she won the Kajiado East constituency in Kenya on Wednesday. What made her story even more amazing was not the fact that she beat […]The African Scene: You Know You Are African When… by Makho Ndlovu
The news coming out of Africa this week has been pretty damn depressing. I’m talking the grisly case surrounding Oscar Pistorius, the deadly Egypt hot air balloon accident and the grotesque video circulating on the web of a man being dragged to death in South Africa. It’s been kinda heavy to say the least. Yes, we […]The African Scene: I Condone Violence Against Women And So Do You by Makho Ndlovu
17-year-old Anene Booysen’s injuries were beyond horrific. She was gang raped by two men and her stomach had been slit open down to her genitals. The South African native eventually died about six hours later in the hospital – after positively identifying one of her attackers. Two men, Jonathan Davids (23) who is reported to […]The African Scene: NYFW Edition by Makho Ndlovu
New York Fashion Week kicked off this week and all the top buyers, models, stylists, designers and even the posers have descended upon the Big Apple for the world’s biggest fashion party. Just this Thursday, I trekked from Brooklyn to Harlem to check out Zimbabwean designer Evelyn Lambert’s debut at the Harlem’s Fashion Row showcase. […]The African Scene Round 2 by Makho Ndlovu
As far as celebrities go, Africa has seen its fair share of American star power. Music heavyweights such as Lady Gaga, Linkin Park, Usher and even the late, great Whitney Houston are all members of a globe trotting crew that have traveled to the motherland for sold out shows at one point or another. Joining […]Introducing The African Scene by Makho Ndlovu
When I say the word “Africa” to you, what images come to mind? For most Americans (based on my personal experience) some often think of wild animals roaming freely, primitive people darting around buck naked and extreme poverty. Maaaaan Listen! This. Couldn’t. Be. Further. From. The Truth! Don’t believe the hype. My Africa is vibrant, […]CloseSign up for our newsletter and never miss the hot storiesThank you for subscribing to Global Grind!
