Well they touch on current affairs from fashion,music,art,social issues etc basically its “new age history” also with the upcoming episodes they’ll feature guests to make it more interesting. Now with the first episode they decided to unmaster it reason being to allow you to hear raw content trust me all this was done intentionally the world needs unique stuff/out of the box content isn’t it? well this is it! It’s here just give it time it’ll grow, all you have to do is kick back take 41mins of your time, sip coffee and have a listen.
Date 30 March 2017.
It’s a beautiful Wednesday night, we at Joe’s Pub I’m sipping on castle lager and a performance by Mash is taking place right in front of my eyes….”damn if only I had a girl right next to me this would be a perfect setting”
During his performance (mash performs this one song which sounds more like a fusion of gospel and R&B Bro me and my crew went bananas! It was lit literally (lol not with fire but with disco lights 😅)…
and as we turn up one of my clique members pull through with this other thick mami yho yho yho! I almost died.
she was dressed in torn jeans,crop top, and some trainers 👕👖👟
her face her body PERFECT! She a 7 outta 10 well done William 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏.
Okay back to the more important stuff so I took my wine glass went to the Vip section where Mash was located I greeted the brother and his circle after that I requested to interview him also told him about the blog and everything then I was refared to his manager.
Man no lie this guy has one of the coolest managers ever.
im the type of person who like people who are understanding and reasonable this brother was all that we even had a good chat about my future ideas for CAVA THE COMBO (Google it).
So the brother allowed me to interview mash after a 30min good long convo read below:
describe what u do? e.g is it only music that you do
You wanna know what I do? Ok look I’m trying to start something as an artist and at the moment it doesn’t have a name yet , it’s maturing into something people haven’t discovered yet.
I’m trying to take Shangaan/Xitsonga music to the world .
I remember when I came to Gauteng and all I saw was my people (Shangaan ) hiding who they really are “Tsonga” all I saw was people acting like zulu pantsulas some yizo yizo type of stuff!
So as a human you adapt and I also adapted to that type of lifestyle and when I went back home I finessed on everybody by acting like a city boy and talking that zulu vernec.
But with time I had to just embrace myself so what I’m doing is very necessary mash is my name, it’s my surname that’s my father…and everything you hear here its all me , self engineered, written, composed, produced, sung.
I’m an all in one package. I don’t need anybodies input I feel God speaks to me directly same thing with situations I connect with them directly.
where you from?
RIP to my pop’s it’s been 3years since we lost him, he was a teacher both parents but my mom is still around so for them to be accepting of the craft I’m doing it was hard because as a teacher you can’t be out there wanting other people’s children to be stable in life e.g be a Dr, nurse etc but your child is none of those things you must lead by example.
For me it’s not about admiring or looking up to R Kelly it’s a calling…and one thing I know when I say goodbye to this earth and transcend to heaven people will remember me for bringing something different something unique.
what are your future plans?
To die a legend. (Let’s take a 30sec moment of silence to honour that )
It’s to show everyone from my background “village” that where you come from doesn’t necessarily define you as long as you understand what you want together with your purpose.
how I’m doing this? I already started a movement called “classy village kings and Queens” (check your Facebook).
So all I’m saying is everybody is classy it’s a mental state not material things.
I think from what I’ve accomplished thus far you can rate me higher than most.
I feel I’m living my dream right now as we speak as long as they understand that it’s possible they must celebrate that.
Also I’ve been thinking about acting and venturing into reality TV I wanna show you we not just polygan we Tsongas are very talented
how good is your fanbase?
What I know Is a good following does exist for me because if we talking Tsonga music I’m part of the top five dead or alive greatest! !
Also I won an award by munghanalonene fm for best R&B/HIP HOP 2013 this is one of the reasons that define kuri people understand what I’m doing there’s only one mash and they’ll be never be another.
my music is about lessons I’m trying to teach.
If you wanna feel loved ill teach you love, heart broke I’ll comfort you and if it’s church you wanna go ill take you there! I don’t have a genre I do whatever at God’s request💪💪💪💪💪
for any one who doesn’t trust their dream e.g if I want to be a presenter or an musician or actor let me say part of the entertainment biz but doubt themselves what advise u have for them?
People will always talk, people will bring you down and laugh at you.
You need to be patient and let God don’t rush this no matter how talented you are, rush it you will bump into the wrong people and hit the ground so hard it’ll be hard to get back up.
Believe in yourself and your craft
kay gents let’s get back to the drawing board it’s coaching time.
Do u wanna spoil your lady at a very low budget? have the greatest intimate session ever ? especially if she’s coming to your place for the first time? fear not I got you I compiled a routune which have succeeded for me more than 3times with 3 different girls
*NB before we get into the routine I’d like to advice u not to over use the routine , you can maybe use it once every 3months or repeat it but on different girls okay? good.
Now all you’ll need for your budget is R130 somewhere around $10 .
then u have to set up your area, clean your place especially the bedroom then get flowers from your garden or if u afford u can just buy…we trying to save here so it’s best you pick them from the garden *NB these flowers might have ants or allegic scents so please PLEASE! clean THEM using soup then spray them with a proper perfume especially the ones for females
the first time I did this
I did not clean the flowers luckily before we chilled on the bed she noticed the ants then I had to change sheets, so be careful!
okay now go to a shopping centre
>get hot wings snack at chicken licken last time I checked it was R19.90 and make sure u buy the peri peri spices for R1 because you’ll need it you’ll understand later why.
>get a 750ml bottle of Four Cousins (Natural Sweet Red) R36
>get a tub of yoghurt (clover Bliss”double cream yoghurt” flavoured strawberries and cream )
>and the females perfume ones that smell like flowers or nature even an air fresher will do but make sure it doesn’t smell too much
>johnsons baby oil
I think we done.
get to the place while u wait set up everything then comes the playlist
play some Ed Sheeran any LP would be nice but I prefare devide
play from track one to the last track
and when she arrives it’ll just compliment the mood
trust me I know this !
Let her sit on the bed she probably a bit tired so massage her feet while yall conversate about how her day was and so on reason why you do this? your trying to make her feel relaxed she must feel at home and her nerves must be calm.
Give her a glass of wine those hot wings with peri peri and a tub of yoghurt
well you can also just do wine and wings but I’d advice you to mix it’s cooler that way
let her eat a wing if it’s too hot she’ll down it down with a scoop of yoghurt mmmmh😋 it tastes great let her eat those 5wings while she reduce the heat with strawberries and cream yoghurt until she finishes by that time ul be almost done with the massage
then give her a glass of wine just a glass
that’s when you change playlist to DVSN
this guy knows how to set the mood straight
now your getting closer to the sex
start a conversation about you guys first e.g
“how was your first bf like?
how was your first kiss like?
the first time he held you by the hand and walked with u how did you feel? you know?” well I know.
then by the time she might need a second glass pour for her and you don’t let her drink alone
you hit her with the last question
how was your first time having sex like ?
now with the other questions keep it short but with this one go deeper it’ll open ways for you to be able to tap be gentle though
if she’s still a virgin don’t worry your at an advantage because virgin girls want it to be special and from what you’ve already done it’s a special day for her….
as yall talking move closer and try to get the perfect timing to kiss her while she’s still explaining if it doesn’t allow don’t force it.
After kissing her ask her this
“what do you think of us experiencing sex for the first time here at my place ?”
there its up to her because with all the progress you made she’s likely to let you in
don’t force it if she refuse be gentle at least she’ll know u care and tomorrow is another day you gained points Bro!
here on out everything is a success so you continue kissing then take the tub put the amount of a tea spoon on her forehead both nipples and her belly button u kiss those areas until you reach between her thighs now there that’s where you gonna have to work with your tongue make sure the weekend trilogy is playing in the background.
From here on out its up to you how you guys proceed (make sure the magic happens )
then after the magic happened
play some ed shereen again to ease the mood
I advice you guys to take a bath/shower together then get cozy and tell her how beautiful she is and serenade her like kid cudi.
no doubt she’ll keep coming back 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏
summary of all the stuff you’ll need
give me feedback on how it went ?enjoy 😉
Remember a post i did on @Denier_M(matimu sithole)? well that very same guy introduced me to Mr 1802 an artist i met at 012central Rooftop exhibition an event that was hosted by Adriaan Louw where they were showcasing pictures taken at an #instawalk in Pretoria and 3 of Mr 1802’s images were featured.
How it happed- Denier invited me and he introduced us then we exchanged instagram accounts then 20+ days later i hit him up and asked if we could meet up for an interview and he agreed fast forward to Friday 27/10/2015 Mr 1802 landed in midrand and we went to MacDonald’s where the interview took place.
I made him pay for his own food though(sorry bruh money problems)
read the interview below.
Describe nhlanhla for me.
uhm…cool dude, Ok not your average cool dude not that braam guy but yeah a cool dude….
(As he was explaining a man who told us his a MacDonald’s supervisor asked ‘what is a cool dude?)
you know when they say your cool? being cool is when you influence people in a good way Like Kanye i know you might think his big headed and his so full of himself but look at it this way he influences a whole lot of people/kids when it comes to fashion,music and i know you might say he curses in his music or whatever but being cool is all about influencing people in a good way
(then the “MacDonald’s supervisor” asked so you wanna be the same as well?)
yes with what i do. I’m a Photographer i also wanna do fashion and influence people in a good way with what i do.
(“McDonald’s supervisor” ‘do you know that kanye makes money out of that?’ after that question he started to explain stuff about the devil etc then the conversation went to a moment of silence for a few seconds luckily his phone rings)
Lets get back to the subject matter.
(“McDonald’s supervisor” interrupts after hanging up his phone and says ‘myself i get paid to sit here and answer phone calls while i watch you guys chilling and talking when month end comes R45000 enters my bank account right now I’m off to the office’ then he stands up and come to our table and tells nhlanhla ‘your eating poison here cancer’ then walks off)
Okay….i was still saying i love art that’s why I’m doing photography…
(“McDonald’s supervisor” interrupt again ‘good luck with your photography!’ while walking away)
Sure, Check out my instagram account @nhlanhla1802…So i love art i feel like art can change the world man, art not being a drawing or painting but anything that is creative and beautiful that’s art for me, I’m an artist.
your an artist but can you tell me about your origins.
Well my name is Nhlanhla Wandile Dlamini born in Johannesburg 1999 October 18 1802 i was raised there and the reason i chose 1802 people thought it was that thing where instagram gives you a name because @nhlanhla already exist nah its not that i chose that myself 1802 being the house that i lived in/the apartment was on the 18th floor room 02…i feel like I’m bringing my past into my future i wanna be known as Mr 1802.
And now you in Centurion when did you move to that side?
I got here in 2005 so i spent like 5 years in Johannesburg and I’ve been here ever since.
What inspires your photography?
Art, i love art. I feel like my photography is not just photography, there are photographers that just take photos just for taking photos and then there’s an artist for instance me you saw the light paintings on my instagram?
me: Yeah, i saw those.
i was just drawing in the air i feel like i used photography to paint i just did art with my photography.
and i kept wondering how you made those light paintings.
you know what i did? i put a DSLR on 30seconds shutter speed, the shutter and aperture was open as wide as possible ISO was on 100, aperture on 5.6 or something and then i just took my phone put the flash on and just drew.
And that one i was just fooling around with the light but apart from fooling around i just wanted to show my shoes.
speaking of shoes are you a sneaker head and what are your other interests?
Jaap, at the moment I’m using photography to start my way into fashion i wanna go study in New York at the Parsons school of fashion it’s like one of the best fashion schools in the world that’s my dream man and i feel like photography is gonna boost my fashion brand cause I’ll be known already and it’ll just kick off in a nice way.
It’s like you certain about fashion.
Right now are you studying/designing?
me: can you draw?
Like i said I’m an artist, i haven’t done that in a while and the last time i drew was in my light paintings i can do a lot of things bruh…I’ve made a song one time it went well but it wasn’t …
were you singing or?
it was a beat but i didn’t finish it.
Wow you produced the beat yourself?
Yeah, it’s not only photography that i do but photography is my main.
photography is what sparked this interview.
yeah its what shows I’m an artist, my art inspired you,cool dude,inspire people,influence people, that’s what made this interview! i inspired you.
you really have inspired me man.
Tell me about your gigs/photoshoots that you’ve done so far and the money?
I’ve only done 10 gigs, there’s this one friend that really support me his name is Lebokgang his gonna check out your stuff and his gonna see his name, he has a fashion brand “DEU” i did plenty of photoshoots for him in braam he really supports me he likes my stuff. There’s this one girl Neo Kwala i feel like she’s my biggest fan I’ve been friends with her since grade 8 she love my instagram page bruh if there’s one person that you’d have to ask about my photos is Neo she would know.
me: the money?
right now I’m not making much if you wanna ask me about money come next year cause I’m only blowing up now a few have liked my photos e.g Levis the actual brand they took their time and went to their tags and like my photo a photo that i took and just to think of it Levis a big brand they get hundred and thousands of tags everyday and they decided to like my photo on that day? that must mean something.
yeah it does mean something.
another thing my photos don’t get a lot of likes and stuff I’m just blowing up now man.
your influenced by art but are there people that you look up to?
there’s this friend of mine named Simphiwe instagram @simiato that guy his the actual reason i started photography. On a rainy night i was out with him and we stood outside for 30 minutes actually he made me stand with him just waiting for lightning strikes and when he finally got that shot i was like dude how did you do that? ever since that day I’ve never stopped learning about photography…but there’s other people like Adriaan Louw,okmalumkoolkat though his not a photographer but his a designer so his art boost my creativity.
by the way what do you use to shoot?
i use my phone and a camera when ever i can borrow one.
music wise who do you listen to?
okmalumkoolkat 100k macassette that whole mixtape, I’ve been a fan of him ever since dirty paraffin do you know that group?
yeah i know that group?
yeah I’ve been a fan of him ever since then and I’m also bumping J Cole,Kendrick and drake.
so their music or them e.g okmalumkoolkat as a person influence you?
musically and as a person and with okmalumkoolkat i almost have a similar story to him i didn’t struggle that much but bruh he came from the slums and his making it right now that’s what inspired me also these guys Kendrick and J Cole those guys inspire me a lot bruh…i forgot to mention Joey Badass that guy tells stories with his music i tell stories with my photos its all about telling stories with me bruh.
speaking of stories what stories are you trying to portray with your photography?
well i just don’t post anything e.g my recent photos i posted them in black&white some of them well 3 of them it’s all about Africa and being dark skinned
i told a story with that i feel like i wanna inspire people i don’t even know how to say it but there’s always a deeper meaning to my photos if you look carefully even though my captions might be short there’s always a deeper meaning to them…look at my photos,look at my captions you’ll click at the same time if you know me very well, my close friends they know me Mpho, Asakhe, Sitha, Tino and Xhanti they know whenever i post something on instagram they’ll be like ‘oh this is what this guy is portraying this is what he want to send out with his photo’.
i hear you, i have this one question i plan on asking everyone i interview.
For someone like me who’s into art and stuff and who’s still aspiring but not sure if they want to pursue because of what society thinks or they afraid they won’t make money etc what advice you have
i would say don’t give up for instance me when i started this photography stuff i started with an iPod with only a front camera…
wait what, only a front camera?
i told you don’t let lack of equipment limit you if you let that limit you,you wont get anywhere also society cause just like me right now to tell the truth there’s a whole lot of photographers and most…I’m gonna sound like I’m hating but a lot of things for me look the same. I didn’t let the lack of equipment stop me,i didn’t let people who were telling me no wena your just a copy cat following people,i didn’t let that stop me so don’t let anything stop you just pursue what you want if you work hard you’ll get it.
you just have to push?
you have to push that’s the only way.
Denier once told me these words “your interest determines your success”…
and the circles you hang out with. If your gonna hangout with the circle that’s gonna tell you nah nigga you ain’t gonna make it, nah dawg you just a copycat you wont make it…my friends i always tell them ‘guys hustle trust me one day we gonna make it’ i always tell my friend Mpho Mashabane that ‘dawg we gonna make it one day bruh trust me’ just push that’s all you have to do. I’m a 16 year old…
and your influencing a 19 year old.
not only you I’ve influenced a whole lot of people…look I’m just 16, 16! and I’m still in high school where do i find the time to do this i make time if you love something you’ll push.
i hear you and since there’s a whole pool of photographers what’s so different about you that makes you believe you’ll make it?
Determination. I feel like most of these cats that are my age they just doing it for just doing it they not doing it for the love….
they doing it for likes on instagram and girls comments?
yeah, I’m just trying to push my art dawg i just want the whole world to see i don’t just want to be another photographer…nah i wanna push art bruh.
that’s the direction your headed everything even school will be based on art?
yeah and a lot of people might tell me you not gonna make money, trust me I’m gonna make it and it’s not all about money if you love something you’ll do it with passion money will drive you crazy don’t do things for money but we can’t live without money that’s why I’m like if you like something and you good at it make people pay if they really love your art they will pay for it. I’m not pushing money only but man nothing is free in this world.
about Braamfontein are you also a #braamkid?
not really but i do hangout in braam…whenever I’m in braam I usually hangout with Lebo or Trendsend 90 those are my friends, those 3 guys well 2 of them influenced me with this fashion thing.
even neighbour goods market?
yeah I’ve actually wanted to print my art/photos then showcase them there and just sell a few cause even in Pretoria there’s 012 central i also wanna showcase there and they told me its cool we need more people like you to showcase their art come through anytime will get you a spot.
which instagram accounts do you suggest a person must follow?
@Simiato that’s my friend his also an artist like me.
that’s all i can think of right now but there’s a whole lot more trust me owh and @hypebeast.
what’s your conclusion?
let me make up a quote
“I’m 16 and I’m doing it, you can too”
