The 24th of September is a special day for South Africa. A day to celebrate one’s heritage. The past 4 days have been nothing but colourful as the rainbow nation citizens embraced different cultures. As Africans, our traditional outfits is what usually makes us stand out.
Here are pictures of some those we came across either on social media or face to face and we thought of sharing them on our platform for the rest of the world to see the beauty of what Africa is all about.
Sanelisiwe blew us away with her Zulu attire. Stunning!
Musician Elle, in her Venda traditional skirt. Not sure what tribe the neck-piece is.
VhaVenda on point
Representing the Tsonga tribe, Warren Thobejane was kind enough to pose for us at her work place.

Our clothes are beautiful. Our cultures are everything not just SA but the African culture leaves me wanting more. When our fellow Africans have their weddings or traditional events it’s always a good look.
That Sanelisiwe looks good. Intombi yomzulu. She’s hot. The babies nailed it. I can go on and on. Thank you Kiks for this article.
Thank you for giving us fresh faces. It’s tiring to see same faces over and over. I’m talking about celebs. This is a brilliant article and I love the fact that you mostly put people like us. Those we can relate to the most. Ordinary people. I like that. *As I steal designs*
It was a beautiful weekend bathong, ntse re bona merafe ka bophara batho ba ikgantsha ka setso sa bona
Good morning bahlali. I need your advise hleng and how to go about this issue I am having. About 2/3 months ago I approached our CEO PA with a proposal to supply the company with flowers and since our company has a suite at the Emirates Stadium (Ellis Park), I would like to be involved in coordinating when there is an event at the stadium. Showed her pictures of my work and everything, herresponse was “okay” and would walk away. I would be like “oh well” maybe she is not happy with my work. Servest has been the supplier for the longest time delivering every Monday morning. Jiki jiki ka Tuesday im sitting at the reception area, I then see a colleague delivering flowers and giving the receptionist strict orders not to let anyone touch the bouquet and she left. Haibo!!! I ask the receptionist if the lady is now supplying flowers and she said yebo. Bahlali, I feel discriminated against and want to confront the pa. Will I be wasting my time or I should just do it?
I did a short course in flower Arranging and Function Décor and she is aware of it. The company built a humungous building and offices are galore, so can you guys imagine how much business that is. Athe rona bo darkie re tlo flourish-a neng? If she doesn’t come to the party I am going to approach HR, aneva shem!
Yhuuuuu, Returnsoldier. I would have lost my mind stru. Kudlaliwe ngawe shem. Confront her and demand answers.
