  1. Very humble and warm person and I love your review… if youre still in SA hit me up I think it would be fun hanging around. Kenyans are such lovely and humble people had 2 friends from Nairobi back in 2015 when i was still at Wits

  2. smash & grab is also a euphemism for casual sex. like Netflix & chill, just sayin'. & one thing south Africans find weird with our fellow Africans is not greeting people when you walk into a space. we sorta get it with white people/arabs/indians/asians but it really hurts us when its other Africans. its very rude to us. so if there's one thing you wanna do to make your life easier? just know that one …

  3. There is the middle class in South Africa. Sandton is a northern suburb in Gauteng where mostly rich people live but there are other suburbs like in the south, west and east and there you'd find the middle class. You saw the extremes of Sandton and Alex, which is not necessarily the whole representation of South Africa, considering that Alex is one of the smallest and poorest townships in Gauteng and South Africa. There are other townships that are more developed than Alex and you would also find that some of the middle class also lives there. The president of South Africa and many other politicians live in Soweto (before moving to the presidential house of course) ,for example, and it's not the most prestigious place compared to the suburbs but livable. The big cities like Johannesburg and Cape Town might give you an impression that that's how the whole country is, with both extremes but if you travel to other areas, you find different classes of people living in the same area. I'm not denying that there's a great gap between the rich and poor and the inequalities we are still experiencing to this day but we're not a dual economy as you mentioned.

  4. You are excellent observer, analyst,unbiased and good narrator. I enjoyed your video. Kiswahili has many south african bantu words. E,g your day( siku yako) siku is Tsonga, yako related to eyakho in IsiZulu. Nitakula means i will eat in kiswahili,( kula also in Tshivenda, ' Nita' also means i will in Tsonga. Meno in Sesotho etc.
