029: Ndaba with Bheki Dube of Curiocity Hostels and Fhatuwani Mukheli & Vuyo Mpantsha of I See A Different You
By Kent Johnson // Gray Graft Media
Ndaba: a Zulu word, meaning “a meeting of the minds to discuss a very important topic.” On this episode of UNGENTRIFIED, I am joined by Bheki Dube (@bhekidup), owner of Curiocity, a network of hostels in South Africa and Vuyo Mpantsha & Fhatuwani Mukheli of I See A Different You (@iseeadifferentyou), a marketing & design firm dedicated to sharing uniquely South African stories to chat about exposing the world to Johannesburg’s buzzing creative scene. We discuss how media often negatively influences the world’s view of Africa and why people should meet South Africa for themselves, how Soweto and the Maboneng District are two areas that define the creative pulse of Johannesburg, why the vibe in Joburg can’t be duplicated and the feeling as a creative when your idea has been copied. Listen and give us your opinion!
