DTV-Prince-Twala

Prince Twala

Prince Twala

Not many people are aware that the Newtown precint in Johannesburg is also home to royalty; simply ask where you can find Prince Twala when visiting this cultural hub. Candice Morgan did, and got to learn more about the man affectionately known as the Prince of Newtown: his storied connection to the arts, his jewellery and his music.

South African Sign Language Lessons

After a short break, Thabo Ntatlo is finally back with brand new South African Sign Language lessons. A new format, and new topics; join us to keep expanding your knowledge of SASL.

Household Tips

Njeleti is back with a brilliant recipe for a cheap, and safe, air-freshener you can make yourself.

Homemade Air Freshener

Directions

Place small bowls of bicarbonate of soda, or vinegar with lemon juice added, around the house to absorb unpleasant odours. Alternatively, for a quick fix to unpleasant kitchen odours you can place a small amount of ground coffee on the kitchen counter, or have a pot of simmering water with a few sticks of cinnamon on the stove top.

Headwraps

Headwraps are more than just a quick and easy way to disguise a bad hair day; they have cultural significance, but can also be a stylish accessory that accentuates any outfit.

Thabo Ntatlo sits down with Olga Mtshweni, visionary headwrap artists, and founder of Wrapsody, an online store specialising in unique headwraps for any occassion.

Household Tips

We all know that keeping a modern home clean is no easy task, but did you know that many of the cleaning materials we use are toxic, and pollutants?

Homemade All-Purpose Cleaner

Ingredients

½ Cup White Vinegar
¼ Cup Bicarbonate of Soda
2l Water

Directions

Mix the vinegar, bicarbonate of soda and water thoroughly. Use this all-purpose cleaner on chrome fixtures (taps, etc.), windows, mirrors and kitchen surfaces.

Geldhof Chocolatier

Oscar Wilde once commented:

I can resist everything except temptation.

And what is more tempting than a tray of decadent chocolates?

Candice Morgan and the DTV team met with Marc Geldhof, a leading chocolatier who has been manufacturing chocolates in South Africa since 1991. His incredible chocolates can be found in many top South African hotels, and purchased from his dedicated stores in Sandton City, Eastgate, and Clearwater Mall.

Graffiti

Vandalism, or art? In order to get a better understanding of this rebellious expression of street culture, Candice Morgan first meets with Jo Buitendach, a woman with a background in history and architecture, and who is now writing a dissertation on the contribution graffiti makes to built environments. Candice then meets two of Johannesburg’s most well-known graffiti artists, Mars and Bias, who share some more insights, and show us their favourite works.
