The Wife| Perpetuating Zulu Taxi Driver Stereotypes and Romanticizing toxic masculinity or just an entertaining local drama?

The Wife on @showmaxonline is quite entertaining. Sloppy with the details as we have come to expect from Gugu Zuma-Ncube’s productions, e.g. ZULU TAXI ASSOCIATION sticker is just wrong.

I wasn’tContinue reading “The Wife| Perpetuating Zulu Taxi Driver Stereotypes and Romanticizing toxic masculinity or just an entertaining local drama?”

Oh this photo though! It brings back so many memories. Malherbe Res Room 122.
