An Off-Screen Chat with Shalima Mkongi

by

Shalima Mkongi is the name that South Africans will get familiar with in 2018. The talented actress who is UCT-trained, has been on stage and is now aiming her mark on Mzansi's TV screens. With a TV debut on SABC 2's Keeping Score in 2017 and now a role on Mzansi Magic's new isiXhosa prime time Sunday night drama, Nkululeko, we think she's right on target! On 'Portia' I was interested in the challenge of playing a complex character like Portia. I also really wanted to challenge myself as a performer. Portia is extremely different from any other character I have played and very different to ‘ Shalima’, so I wanted to see how I’d manage with this character. Her story is also very interesting, one of the reasons I was so attracted to the character. Ashanti vs Portia My last big TV role, I played a teenager, Ashanti who is privileged and entitled whereas Portia is a ...

Global festival brand, Afropunk, decided to grace South Africa with a 2 day festival event filled with a great line-up of African and International acts, the attendees decided to show up with an overwhelming amount of blackness, love, queerness, fashion and good vibes. We asked 1/3 of Pap Culture, Nwabisa Mda, who is quickly becoming recognized for her candid portrait photography which she posts on her Instagram page, to share with us her photo diary of the weekend. Have a look in the gallery below. From Nwabisa  So taking photo's has always been my thing I just never had the devices that made the pots. I don't wanna become a photographer I just really love capturing happy people, just so I can hoard the images in my bank of memories (I have over 10 000 images on my phone 👀). I'm a bit of a sentimental person and this is my way ...

THE 6 ESSENTIAL UNDIES YOU NEED FROM THABOOTY’S

by

South African Actress, TV presenter and DJ, Thando Thabethe officially launched her much anticipated underwear & shape-wear range, “Thabooty’s”. Launched yesterday at Braamfontein's Randlords Rooftop Venue, the line marks the beginning of a new era for women of all shapes, sizes, colours and creeds, providing a new calibre of comfort, style and support not currently found in off-the-rack stores. Thabooty’s Underwear & Shapewear provides a new outlook on shapewear, with sexy, appealing garments you won’t want to keep hidden. Thando Thabethe explains that the idea to start an underwear & shapewear range was inspired by her struggles to find off-the-rack shapewear that was both appealing to the eye as well as functional. “I wanted to create something women wouldn’t be ashamed to wear, and something that would meet my functional needs. Whether it was to even out, control or contour, I needed something that wouldn’t roll down my body or make me ...
