  5. Our 1st Reality show

    Material Culture

    There’s having a side-hustle, and then going full-hustle … and nothing epitomises hustle like the skhothane scene in South Africa’s townships. Homeboys in their silk shirts, Italian shoes, Johnnie Walker Blue. From Kathehong to Tembisa, from Eldorado Park to Soweto. Skhothane is all about the threads, the dance-offs, vula boot in the parks—born-frees with money on their mind, and their mind on the money.

Why is it so important that we tell authentic South African stories?

We understand that everybody has a story to tell, no matter where they come from or what their circumstances are, especially those from the township. We took it upon ourselves to bring the untold authentic stories to the world.
