A walk from class with Vuyi

Vuyisile Kubeka is a former semi-martial artist, writer and deputy editor of both Y-Not Culture and IRAWA Post. She wears all these hats while completing her Communication Science Degree at the University of the Free State, well, we might have a jack of all trades. She was born in BETHLEHEM in the FREE STATE, raised in QWA-QWA – a place so comely, her beauty of countryside mountains scream exotically from dawn till dusk.

Submission in a relationship

(From a woman’s perspective and understanding)

While I was going through my Facebook timeline, I came across an interesting picture with a very powerful caption, touching on submission in a relationship. This got me asking myself, to what extent does understanding of submission differs, between men and women.

Civicism and Hip Hop

@Una_Ramses

No pain, no gain/ Be true to your culture/ Be aware of the vultures/ Remember where you come from/ Representing MP to the fullest/ I show you how to do this/ I came into the industry with something/ I ain’t going back home with nothing.

Rappers from different parts of the country sacrifice the comforts of being a ‘hometown’ based artist, for the centre of the country’s music industry which is Joburg or J-Sec for those who grew up in the culture. J-Sec is, in most cases the only destination high school rappers upon completing their matric, without any further consideration, choose to continue their studies in the institutions there.Read More »Civicism and Hip Hop

Why relationships don’t work out at times

(A conversation between Unarine “Una Ramses” Ramaru and Kimberly Pearl Moyo)

You know guys do things from the situations that girls create, not that it is so, but I know for a fact, men are hunters and like to catch their prey to boost their ego. What do you mean Ramses??

The moment a guy is asked out by a girl, at first it is personal glory of I didn’t have to do anything, she chased after me but in the long run that pride of been a man will hit him and wished if he asked her out instead, so what must happen now?? He will boost his ego elsewhere (Not saying it is so with everyone man but I tell you whether we admit it or not to majority it is so)

When you are thinking of your prospective other, you must have thoughts that includes a clear future together and not just happiness because it can easily be short lived.

Understand what the relationship holds for you before you go into one, weigh if the relationship will be structured by two people (yourself and partner), one of the two or the two plus society’s standards.

This is why I love Pretoria

Despite all the bad headlines about nyaope and Pretoria soccer teams not winning the league for the past 3 seasons, Pretoria is still a wonderful city to live in. Well, I wrote this after four months of being homesick away from Cap City (Capital City of South Africa). Everytime people mention how wonderful and great their cities are with oceans on their coasts as compared to Pretoria and Joburg, I just dismiss their arguments as naive and ignorant (in my heart that is).Read More »This is why I love Pretoria
