More about the book!
Join authors Esinako Ndabeni and Sihle Mthembu as they take us on a trip down Kwaito lane at The Book Lounge.
Ndabeni and Mthembu will be in discussion with acclaimed writer Mohale Mashigo.
Born to Kwaito revisits history as told through the vibrant lens of Kwaito, which is more than just music. Kwaito presented a new unbridled expression of Black South African youths. It carried the political significance of Black South Africans deciding to take a moment to enjoy themselves and the promise of their freedom. Born to Kwaito takes us through the tsiki tsiki yho’s of our South African narrative, cementing a culture of living, dancing and human relation unique to Kwaito and unique to eKasi. Trailblazed by likes of Oskido, Kwaito created a whole new and vibrant way of being for the Black person in South Africa’s newfound democracy.
